Thumbprint Cookies

¾ cup butter softened
½ firmly packed brown sugar
1 egg separated
½ tsp vanilla
1 1/3 flour
¼ tsp salt
1 cup finely chopped nuts
Jam or jelly

Preheat over to 375. Cream butter and sugar. Beat in the egg yolk and vanilla. Stir in flour and salt until well mixed. If desired chill dough for easier handling. Shape dough into balls using slightly rounded teaspoon full. Slightly beat eggs white. Dip balls into egg white and roll in nuts. Place 1 inch apart on un-greased cookie sheet. Press a deep hole in the center of each cookie with thumb. Bake 8-10 min until lightly browned. Remove from baking sheet and cool. Fill centers with jam or jellies. Makes 3 dozen
