  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup Smucker's® Strawberry Preserves, or your favorite Smucker's jam or preserves


  1. COMBINE flour and sugar in large bowl. Cut in butter with pastry blender or two knives until coarse crumbs form. Add egg yolk and vanilla. Mix until dough holds together.
