In a large bowl, cream the butter and sugar; mix well. Add in the vanilla or almond extract. Stir in the flour; mix well. Roll the dough into small marble-size balls and put on parchment-lined cookie sheets. Make a small well in the center of each cookie with the back of a wooden spoon handle. Fill each one with the pastry filling of your choice. Bake in a preheated 350 oven for 12 minutes or until light brown. Do not over bake.

Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
This recipe was given to me by my friend Ruth. She would make them for every OPWE bake sale, and I would buy almost all of them for my son Louis. One day she decided it would save me a lot of money if she just gave me the recipe. These cookies just melt in your mouth and are very addicting. Ask Louis, I'm sure he will give them an A+ rating!
