1 cup butter, softened
1/3 cup butter flavored crisco
3/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup heavy cream plus two tablespoons
1 egg yolk
Jams of choice, red raspberry, strawberry, blackberry, pineapple, lemon curd, orange marmalade, cherry perserves, etc. I love these filled with 1/4 of a caramel ( cut a whole square into four pieces), mini chocolate chips, and pecans, its like a turtle cookie, after baking for 10 minutes, fill with the turtle filling, put back into oven until caramel melts, around 7 more minutes.
Combine all ingredients and mix together, until it forms a perfect ball. No refrigeration neccessary.
Preheat oven to 350 F.
Roll into balls. With the bottom of a floured finger make an indentation in the center. Place on parchment paper. Bake for 10 minutes. Fill with jam, perserves or my second favorite: add one cut piece of solid square caramels( cut in four pieces) , a few mini chocolate chips and topped with chopped pecans! Then bake for another 5 minutes till set not browned. Cool, sprinkle with powdered sugar.
