Turkish Eyes

makes 2 dozen

1 cup butter
1 cup powdered sugar
pinch of salt
1 tablespoon honey
1 teaspoon vanilla
2-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
½ cup apricot jam
powdered sugar

Preheat oven to 350F. Lightly grease cookie sheets or line with parchment paper. Cream butter. Add the sugar and cream until smooth. Add salt and vanilla. Stir in flour. Knead until smooth. Roll out dough between two pieces of wax paper until ¼" in thickness. Carefully remove the top sheet of wax paper. Cut out equal number of 3" circles and 1" circles. Place on cookie sheets about 1" apart. Bake 10-12 minutes or until golden brown. Transfer to wire racks to cool. Spread the jam on the 3" circles, leaving a ¼"-1/2" border all around. Dust the 1" circles with powdered sugar and place in the center of the jam-lined cookies. Let cookies set.
