- 2/3 Cup Sugar
- 1 Cup Butter (softened)
- 1/2 tsp. Almond Extract
- 2 cups Flour
- Raspberry Jam (Apple Butter or jam of your choice!)
- 1 Cup Powder Sugar
- 1-1/2 tsp. Almond Extract
In a large bowl combine sugar, butter and almond extract. Mix while the scraping bowl often until creamy. Add flour and mix. Do not over-stir. Shape dough into 1 inch balls. Place about 2 inches apart on cookie sheet. With thumb, make indent in center of each cookie.This is fun for the kids! Fill each with about 1/4 teaspoon of jam. Bake at 350 degrees for 12 to 15 minutes or until lightly browned on the edges. Let them stand for 1 minute and remove from cookie sheet. Cool.
In another bowl, stir powder sugar and almond extract. Gradually add enough water to make a thin glaze. Drizzle glaze over each cooled cookie. I like to place it into a sandwich bag, clipping the bottom corner and drizzling over each sweet cookie!
