Yo - Yo
What You Need:
  • 4 sticks (1 pound) unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • ½ cup confectioners' sugar
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1 cup finely chopped blanched almonds
  • 5 tablespoons brandy
  • 1/3 cup orange juice
  • 1 teaspoon double-acting baking powder
  • 4½ to 5 cups sifted all purpose flour
  • 2 cups apricot or raspberry preserves
  • Confectioners' sugar for dusting

  • How To Cook:
    1. Preheat oven to 350°F.

    2. Cream butter until very light. Add sugar, egg, almonds, brandy, and orange juice and beat for 2 minutes. Sift baking powder with flour and carefully blend into butter mixture.

    3. Shape into small round cookies the size of a quarter and about ¼ inch thick, or roll dough out to a thickness of ¼ inch and cut with a round cookie cutter.

    4. Bake on ungreased cookie sheet for 15 minutes, or until lightly golden. Cool on racks.

    5. Spread preserves over half the cookies and top with remaining half to form "sandwiches."

    6. Sprinkle a piece of wax paper with confectioners' sugar and place cookies on it. Sprinkle more confectioners' sugar on top to cover completely.

    7. Cool thoroughly on wax paper before storing.

    To Make: 3 dozen cookies
