Chairman’s Choice Recipe 

Cookie Surprise
1 c. butter or margarine, softened
1 ¼ c. sugar
2 large eggs, separated
2 t. vanilla
3 c. flour
1/8 t. baking powder
1/8 t. salt
1 c. jam or jelly (any flavor)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

In large bowl, with mixer on low speed, beat butter with 1 cup sugar, occasionally scraping bowl with spatula, until blended. Beat in egg yolks and vanilla. Gradually beat in flour, baking powder, and salt. Shape dough into 2 balls, flatten slightly. Wrap in plastic wrap; refrigerate 1
hour or until firm enough to roll.

Roll out 1 ball of dough 1/8 inch thick. Use a round cookie cutter and cut as many as you can. In cup, beat egg whites slightly. Brush cookies with egg whites and sprinkle with some of remaining ¼ cup sugar. 

Repeat with other dough ball until all are ready. The second batch, do not sprinkle with sugar.

Before you bake, put ¼ to ½ teaspoon jam on cookies without sugar on them, then cover with the sugar topped cookies and press edges shut. Bake all cookies for 10 to 12 minutes until lightly brown. Transfer to rack to cool.

About 4 ½ dozen cookies.
