Servings: 36


2 cups Four Way Butter Dough (recipe follows)
1/3 cup raspberry or strawberry preserves
1 egg
1 teaspoon water
1/4 cup ground nuts

Four Way Butter Dough:
1 pound (1 1/2 cups) butter, softened
2 cups sugar
3 eggs
1 tablespoon vanilla
5 cups flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt

Cooking Directions:

Shape dough into two flattened rounds. Wrap securely in plastic wrap; chill several hours until firm.

On floured surface, roll one round to 1/8 inch thickness. Cut with 2 1/2 inch scalloped round cutter. Dollop 1/4 teaspoon preserves on center of each cookie. Fold dough in half, enclosing preserves. Lightly press edges to seal. Place 1 inch apart on buttered cookie sheet. Brush lightly with combined egg and water; sprinkle with nuts. Repeat with remaining dough. Bake at 400° F for 8 to 10 minutes or until edges begin to brown.

Four Way Butter Dough:

Cream butter and sugar together until fluffy. Add eggs and vanilla; beat until light and fluffy. Add remaining ingredients, mixing at low speed until well-blended. Divide and use as indicated in recipes.
