    Servings and Ingredients

    ½ c. butter, softened
    ¾ c. sugar
    ½ tsp. baking powder

    ¼ tsp. ground mace
    1 egg yolk
    ¼ c. sour cream
    1 tsp. vanilla
    2 c. all-purpose flour
    Filling options: About 1/2 cup jam, preserves or marmalade and/or melted white, milk or semisweet chocolate


    1. In a large mixing bowl, beat the butter with an electric mixer on medium to high speed for 30 seconds. Add the sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt and mace. Beat until combined, scraping bowl. Beat in egg yolk, sour cream and vanilla. Beat in as much of the flour as you can with the mixer. Stir in remaining flour. Divide dough in half. Cover and chill or 2 hours or until easy to handle.
    2. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Lightly grease a cookie sheet. On a lightly floured surface, roll half of dough at a time to 1/4-inch to 1/8-inch thickness. Cover and chill the remaining half of dough. Using a 1- to 2-inch cookie cutter, cut into desired shapes. Place 1 inch apart on prepared cookie sheet. Repeat with the second half of dough.
    3. Bake 1-inch cookies 5 to 6 minutes or 2-inch cookies 7 to 8 minutes, or until edges are firm and bottoms are very lightly browned. Cool cookies on wire rack.
    4. Frost the bottoms of half of the cooled cookies with 1/4 teaspoon (for 1-inch cookies) or 3/4 teaspoon (for 2-inch cookies) of desired filling. Place another cookie on top.
