Preheat the oven to 350°F (175°C) and line baking sheets with parchment paper.


In a large bowl, cream together softened butter and granulated sugar until light and fluffy.


Beat in the egg yolks, one at a time, and stir in vanilla extract.


In a separate bowl, whisk together all-purpose flour and salt.


Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, mixing until a soft dough forms.


Shape the dough into tablespoon-sized balls and place them on the prepared baking sheets.


Use your thumb or a small spoon to create an indentation in the center of each cookie.


Fill each indentation with a small amount of strawberry jam.


Bake for 10-12 minutes or until the edges are golden.


Allow the cookies to cool on the baking sheets for a few minutes before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely.

Tips for this recipe
