    1       c            Butter
      1/2   c            Sugar
    3       c            Flour
      1/2   ts           Salt
    1       t            Vanilla
                         Apricot preserves or other>>
                         -flavor of your choice.
                         Powdered Sugar
 
      Cream butter and sugar until light.  Add flour and
   salt. Chill slightly and roll 1/8 thick between wax
   paper sheets. Roll only a small amount of dough at a
   time. Using a 2 1/2 cookie cutter, cut cookies. Cut
   center out of half of cookies (I use my thimble to cut
   centers). Bake all cookies on ungreased sheets at 400~
   for 8-10 minutes or less, until very lightly browned.
   Cool on wire racks.  Spread whole cookies with
   preserves, piled higher in center.  Top with cookie
   ring. Sprinkle with 4x sugar. Store in tin box between
   layers of wax paper.
