2/3 cup sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup raspberry jam (preferably seedless)

Glaze (optional)

1/2 cup confectioners' sugar
3/4 tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp milk


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Cream together butter and sugar until smooth. Mix in 1/2 tsp vanilla. Mix in flour until dough comes together. Roll dough into 1 1/2 inch balls, and place on ungreased cookie sheets. Press a small hole into each ball with your thumb then fill the hole with jam.
Bake for 14 to 18 minutes, or until lightly browned. Let cool 1 minute on the cookie sheet then remove to wire rack.
