  1. In a large bowl, add the stick of butter. Use a hand mixer to beat the butter until it is light and fluffy. Carefully incorporate the egg yolk and sugar until everything is thoroughly mixed together.
  2. In a separate bowl, add the baking powder, salt, and flour. While mixing the butter mixture, slowly add the dry ingredients until thoroughly combined.
  3. Shape the dough into a large cylinder. Store in freezer for a minimum of 3 hours.
  4. When you’re ready to bake, preheat your oven to 350 F. Take the dough cylinder and grate off about half of the dough, placing the pieces at the bottom of a baking dish to form a base. Spread some fruit preserves or jam over this, but leave a border of about ½ on all sides. Grate the rest of the dough cylinder and place the pieces over the preserves or jam.
  5. Bake for about 30 to 40 minutes, or until the shortbread bites are a nice golden brown. Remove from oven and cool before sprinkling with powdered sugar and serving.
