Strawberry Cream Cookies

My friend Rhonda made these cookies for a gathering of college friends shortly after we graduated, and they since have become one of my favorite Christmas cookies to make each year.  They’re so pretty with the red jam in the center.
1 c. butter
1 c. sugar
1 3-oz. pkg. cream cheese
1 T. vanilla
1 egg yolk
2½ c. flour
Strawberry jelly
Cream together butter, sugar and cream cheese.  Add vanilla and egg yolk.  Blend in flour.
Chill dough 1 hour; shape into 1” balls.  Dent center of cookie; fill with ¼ t. jam.  Bake on ungreased cookie sheets for 10-12 minutes at 350 degrees.
