Apricot Cream Cookies
5 dozen cookies
1 cup butter or margarine, room temperature

1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 large eggs
8 ounces sour cream
1/2 cup apricot preserves

Preheat oven to 350°F. In a large mixing bowl, beat butter, sugar, baking soda, and salt. Beat on medium speed until combined. Beat in eggs, sour cream, and apricot preserves until combined. Beat in as much of the flour as you can with the mixer. Using a wooden spoon, stir in any remaining flour. Drop dough from a rounded teaspoon 2" apart onto ungreased cookie sheets.

If desired, just before serving brush with melted apricot preserves. To melt preserves, heat preserves in a saucepan over low heat, stirring constantly until melted.
