1/4 teaspoon salt

2 tablespoons apricot spreadable fruit preserves

2 teaspoons shortening

How to make

  1. STEP 1

    Combine sugar and butter in bowl; beat at medium speed until creamy. Add egg and vanilla; continue beating until mixed. Add flour, cocoa and salt; beat at low speed until well mixed.

    Wrap dough in plastic food wrap. Refrigerate 1 hour or until firm.

  3. STEP 3

    Heat oven to 375°F.

  4. STEP 4

    Shape dough into 1 1/8-inch balls. Place 1 inch apart onto ungreased cookie sheets. Make indentation in center of each cookie with thumb or back of spoon (edges may crack slightly). Bake 10-12 minutes or until edges are set. Cool on cookie sheets 1 minute. Cool completely on cooling rack.

  5. STEP 5

    Place 2 ounces white chocolate in 1-quart saucepan. Cook over low heat until melted; stir in preserves. Spoon heaping 1/4 teaspoon white chocolate mixture into center of each cookie.

Tip #1

Not all cookie sheets are created equal. Look for heavy-gauge aluminum or stainless steel sheets with low or no sides for even browning. Dark cookie sheets may cause cookies to overbrown.
