Old recipes have such great names, and what a wonderful name for a cookie this is. This sounds like a jelly filled cookie, and while it calls for currant jelly, use whatever jelly you like the most. Use can use jam, marmalade or any type of fruit butter.
1/2 cup butter
1 cup sugar
2 egg whites
1 tsp. vanilla
Red vegetable coloring
3 to 4 Tbsp. cream
2 1/2 cups sifted all-purpose flour
2 tsp. baking powder
Currant Jelly (or your favorite)
Cream butter thoroughly, add sugar gradually, and cream until fluffy. Add egg whites, unbeaten, and continue creaming. Add vanilla and a small amount of red vegetable coloring to make the dough pink. Add cream, then flour sifted with baking powder, to make a dough that will roll. Roll to about 1/8 inch in thickness. Shape, using any desired cookie cutter. In the center of each cookie place a spoonful of jelly. In another cookie of the same shape, cut two or more small circles, using a thimble. Place the cut cookie over the one with the jelly and press the edges firmly together. Sprinkle with granulated sugar and bake in a moderate oven (375F.) for 12-15 minutes.
