Blend the butter, sugar, and vanilla seeds until light and creamy. Add the citrus juice and zest. Mix well. Add the egg yolks, and mix until incorporated.
Mix together the dry ingredients in a separate bowl. Add the dry ingredients to the butter mixture and mix until the dough comes together. It will be sticky.
Transfer the dough to a section of parchment paper, and roll it into a log with a 2-inch diameter. Wrap the dough well and chill in the refrigerator for one hour.
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Cut the log into 1/4" disks and bake for 10-11 minutes, or until just lightly browned. Remove from the oven and while still warm, gently press an indentation into the each cookie to create a reservoir for your jam of choice.
Cool the cookies until you can handle them, then gently coat them with powdered sugar. Top with a 1/4-1/2 teaspoon of fruit jam in the center of each cookie.
Optional: After dough has chilled for one hour, slice the log into 1/4" disks and place in a freezer-proof, resealable plastic bag. Freeze until needed. Thaw slightly before baking.
