Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Prepare your cookie sheet with parchment paper.
In a bowl of a stand mixer, beat together on medium speed the butter and sugar.
Add egg yolk, salt & vanilla. Cream together on medium until combined. Pour 1/2 of the flour into the wet ingredients and mix until just combined. Pour in the last 1/2 (- ? cup) of the flour and mix again until combined. If the dough is too sticky to work with, slowly add the additional flour.
If the dough is crumbly, add 1 or 2 more tablespoons of softened butter and mix together.
Divide dough into four balls. One ball at a time, begin to roll the dough between your hands to form a long rope. Once the rope is getting too long to roll in your hands, place on a cookie sheet or counter top and roll with your hands until the rope is almost as long as your pan. The four ropes will fit on one 11 ?" x 16 ?" cookie sheet.
Press the side of your pinky finger down the middle to form a canal. Bake for 10 minutes on 350. Take out and spoon jam into the groove or, using a decorating bag with a large tip attached makes this faster. Return to the oven for 8-10 minutes, until golden. Do not overcook.
Drizzle generously with the glaze. A decorating bag will also make this fast. When cooled, cut ropes into diagonal strips. Two ropes one direction and the other the opposite direction. This allows chevron patterns when on the serving plate.
