Cherry Poppy Seed Twinks


From December 28, 2006:  I made these cookies for giving as gifts. Instead of cherry preserves (which I think would be messy, I pressed half of a whole candied cherry into the top of the cookie. Very festive looking with the red and green candied cherries.

Cherry Poppy Seed Twinks

1 cup powdered sugar
1 cup butter or margarine, softened
1 tsp. vanilla
1 egg
2 cups all purpose flour
2 Tbsp. poppy seed
1/2 tsp. salt
cherry preserves

Heat oven to 300 degrees. In large bowl, beat powdered sugar and butter until light and fluffy. Add vanilla and egg; blend well. Stir in flour, poppy seed and salt; mix well. Drop by rounded teaspoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheets. With finger, make imprint in center of each cookie. Fill each imprint with about 1/2 tsp. preserves. Bake at 300 for 20 to 25 minutes or until edges are light golden brown. Immediately remove from cookie sheets. 2 1/2 dozen cookies.
