Maids Of Honour

Yield 5 1/2 dozen


  • 1 1/2 cups butter, softened
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 3 egg yolks
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 cup strawberry jam
  • Sherry Filling
  • Whipped cream (optional)

How to Make It

  1. Cream butter; gradually add sugar, beating until light and fluffy. Add egg yolks, one at a time, mixing well after each addition. Add flour, salt, and vanilla, mixing well.

  2. Shape dough into 1-inch balls; press dough into greased 1 3/4-inch muffin pans to form shells. Spoon 1/2 teaspoon jam into each shell. Spoon filling over jam to fill pastry shells.

  3. Bake at 350° for 20 minutes or until set. Remove from pans while warm. Cool. Top each with a dollop of whipped cream, if desired.
