Jam-dotted Shortbread Cookies

Adapted from Coconut & Lime

12 T. butter
1 c. sugar
1 egg, at room temperature
2 c. flour
½ t. baking powder
Good quality jam (I used Smucker's Simply Fruit Jam)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease cookie sheet with butter. Cream together butter and sugar. Add egg and beat until smooth. Add baking powder and flour to form a thick dough. Roll into small 1 ½ inch balls. Place 1 inch apart on cookie sheet. With your spoon or fingertip, make a shallow dent in the top of each cookie. Fill with a tiny bit of jam. Bake until lightly browned, about 10 minutes. Allow to cool on wire rack.
