Recipe: Amish Raisin Cookies

1-1/2 cups butter or margarine, softened
1 cup sugar
1-1/2 cups ground almonds
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup jelly or jam of your choice

In a mixing bowl, cream butter and sugar. Add almonds and vanilla; mix well. Combine flour and salt; gradually add to the creamed mixture. Refrigerate for 2 hours or until easy to handle. On a lightly floured surface, roll out half of the dough to 1/8-in, thickness.

Cut with a 2-in, round cookie cutter. Repeat with remaining dough, using a 2-in, doughnut cutter so the center is cut out of each cookie. Place 1 in. apart on ungreased baking sheets. Bake at 350 for 10-12 min or until edges are lightly browned. Remove to wire racks to cool. Spread 1/2 teaspoon jelly over the bottom of the solid cookies; place cookies with cutout centers over jelly.

Yield: 5 dozen.
