Ingredients

1 cup
Land O Lakes® Butter, softened
1/2 cup
sugar
2
large Land O Lakes® Eggs (yolks only)
1 tablespoon
orange liqueur or orange juice
2 teaspoons
freshly grated orange zest
2 1/2 cups
all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons
poppy seed
1/2 teaspoon
salt
 
1 cup
red currant jelly*, melted
 
*Substitute your favorite jelly or preserves.

Directions

  1. Heat oven to 350°F. 
  2. Combine butter and sugar in large bowl; beat at medium speed until well mixed. Add egg yolks, orange liqueur and orange zest; continue beating, scraping bowl occasionally, until well mixed. Add flour, poppy seed and salt; beat at low speed until well mixed.
  3. Shape dough into 1-inch balls. Place 2 inches apart onto ungreased cookie sheets. Make indentation in center of each cookie with thumb or back of spoon. Bake 9-11 minutes or until bottom edges are lightly browned. (If indentation puffs up during baking, press it down again.) Remove to cooling rack; cool completely.
  4. Spoon about 1/2 teaspoon jelly into center of each cookie.

Recipe Tips

- For extra sparkle, roll balls of dough in sugar before making indentation in center.

- To melt jelly, place in small bowl. Microwave 30-45 seconds or until jelly is melted. Stir well.
