This is one of my favorite cookies. It's from my Swedish Grandma. They are very simple, but I think that's what I like about them. Very tender and rich.

How to Make Vaniljkakor (Swedish Vanilla Cookies)

Step-by-Step

  1. Cream butter and sugar well. Gradually add sugar, and cream until light and fluffy. Beat in egg yolk, vanilla and flour, blend thoroughly. Roll into walnut-sized balls and place on greased cookie sheet. Make a nice indentation in top of each cookie, I use the end (the handle end)of a wooden spoon for this. Put a little bit of jelly or jam into each indentation. Bake in 350º oven for at least 15 minutes or til pale golden yellow.
    Cool, then sift powdered sugar over them.
