fruit filled delights

1-1/2 sticks butter or margarine
3/4 cup sugar
2 egg yolks
2 tablespoons milk
1 tsp vanilla extract
2-1/4 cups flour
1/4 tsp. salt
2/3 cup your favorite jam

Preheat oven to 375. In large bowl beat butter and sugar until fluffy and light, about 5 minutes. Beat in egg yolks, milk and vanilla until smooth. Beat in flour and salt until blended. Roll dough on lightly floured board, with floured rolling pin. Roll half of the dough 1/4-inch thick. With 2-1/4 inch fluted round cookie cutter, cut out cookies. With 1-2/inch fluted round cutter, cut out centers from 1/2 of the rounds. Repeat with remaining dough, rerolling scraps. Place on ungreased baking sheets 1/2 inch apart. Bake 8 minutes or until golden. Cool on baking sheets 2 minutes. Remove to wire rack to cool completely. On bottom side of solid cookie, spread 1 tsp of your favorite jam; top with a cookie with a hole in it, top side up, to make a sandwich. Repeat with remaining cookies and jam. Makes about 2 dozen.
