These are my husband's fave Christmas cookie
yield: approx. 3 dozen cookies

1/2 c. sifted confectioners/powered sugar
1/2 tsp. salt
2. c. sifted flour
1 c. soft butter/marg.
1 TBsp. vanilla
1 c. finely chopped walnuts
egg white
Raspberry jam

Sift the powdered sugar and measure.  Beat it, the butter, salt, and vanilla together until fluffy.  Sift the flour and then measure. Stir flour into the powdered sugar mixture.  Mix well. Chill in fridge at least one hour so dough will shape easily.  Preheat oven to 375 F.
Shape the chilled dough into small balls (1" in size).  Beat egg white in a small bowl. Dip each ball into egg white and then roll cookie in the chopped walnuts.

Place the cookies 3" apart on ungreased baking sheet. Press a small hole in the center of each cookie with your thumb tip, and fill the hole with a little raspberry jam. Bake on the center rack of oven for 12-15 minutes or until lightly browned and set.
Remnove from oven and spread cookies on a rack to cool.
