Egg Yolk Kolacky

(So good, but very rich – eat too many and you’ll get a bellyache!)

6 egg yolks, boiled and mashed (my son kindly eats the whites so they don’t go to waste!)
1 raw egg yolk
2 sticks softened butter
1/2 cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
flour-(enough so that dough comes off your hands)
powdered sugar

Mix everything together except flour.
Add flour, about 1/2 cup at a time, until the dough doesn’t stick to your hands anymore.
Roll into balls, flatten and make a thumbprint (or shape into little tarts).
Fill each with about a teaspoon of cream cheese filling*, and/or any jam or Solo pie fillings.
Bake on a cookie sheet at 375 just until edges start to brown.
Cool and dust with powdered sugar. (I usually do three flavors.)

*Cream cheese filling:

Mix together:

1/2 cup sugar
8 oz. cream cheese, softened
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 raw egg yolk
