With mixer at low speed, beat together flour, sugar, butter, vanilla, salt, and egg yolk; add vanilla. Increase speed to medium and mix 1 minute. Shape dough into small balls. Chill half an hour. In a small bowl, beat egg white until foamy. Dip each ball into egg white and then into the nuts. Push thumb in the middle of each ball (push almost through the ball to avoid losing the indentation during baking). Cool completely on racks. Fill the middles with your choice of preserves or jam.
