In the spirit of the season, Grandmother's Jelly Cookies guarantee that Santa Claus will recruit you to pack his bag. Make extra and give them as a gift to yourself.
In a large bowl, cream together butter and sugar until light and fluffy.
Add egg and vanilla; beat well. Stir to make a smooth dough. (If batter gets too hard to handle, mix with hands).
Refrigerate about two hours.
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Lightly grease baking sheets. On a lightly floured board, roll out half of the dough to about a ⅛ inch thickness.
Cut with a 2½ inch cookie cutter. Roll out remaining dough; cut with a 2 ½ inch cutter with a hole in the middle. Place on baking sheets. Bake 8 - 10 minutes, or until lightly browned.
Cool about 30 minutes.
To serve, spread preserves on plain cookie; top with a cookie with a hole.
