Author/Submitted by: Seattle Times
Servings: 24
Categories: Cookies / Desserts

1/2  cup  unsalted butter, room temperature
1/4  cup  sugar
1    egg yolk
1  tablespoon  Grand Marnier, * see note
1 1/3  cups  flour
1/4  teaspoon  salt
2  tablespoons  poppy seeds
2  teaspoons  orange peel, finely grated
1/4  cup  red currant jelly

1. In a mixer, cream together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in the egg yolk and Grand Marnier. Gradually add the flour and salt, beating until thoroughly mixed. Beat in the poppy seeds and orange peel just to blend. 2. Break off pieces of the dough and form into 1-inch balls. Place on ungreased baking sheets and make a thumb print in the center of each cookie. Spoon about 1/4 teaspoon of the jelly in the centers. 3. Bake in a preheated 350-degree oven 12 minutes. Cool 5 minutes before transferring the cookies to wire racks.

*or other orange flavored liqueur The cookies can be frozen with or without the jelly filling. ERICA'S NOTES: For one batch of these cookies, I substituted Creme de Cassis and blackberry jam. For another batch, I used Frangelica and ginger preserves. Posted to the mm-recipes mailing list by "Kim" <> Well, I guess I got excited I actually had something somebody wanted!
