In bowl and using wooden spoon, cream together butter, all but 1 tsp (5 mL) of the sugar and salt; stir in vanilla. Stir in flour until just combined.

Divide dough in half. On lightly floured surface, roll each half into 8-inch (20 cm) log. Place, 2 inches (5 cm) apart, on parchment paper–lined baking sheet.

Press handle of wooden spoon lengthwise along centre of each log to create 1/4-inch (5 mm) deep groove. Refrigerate for 10 minutes. Fill grooves with jam. Sprinkle remaining sugar over edges.

Bake in 325°F (160°C) oven until golden brown, about 25 minutes. While still warm, slice into 1/2-inch (1 cm) thick bars.
