How to make it

  • Cookie:
  • Combine butter, sugar, and almond extract for cookie in a large mixing bowl.
  • Beat at medium speed, scraping bowl often, until creamy.
  • Add flour.
  • Reduce speed to low and beat until well mixed.
  • Cover and refrigerate at least one hour.
  • Preheat oven to 350.
  • Shape dough into 1-inch balls.
  • Place 2 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheets.
  • Make indentation in center of each cookie with thumb or back of melon baller.
  • (edges of cookie may crack slightly.)
  • Fill each indentation with about 1/4 tsp. jam.
  • Bake for 14 to 18 minutes or until edges are lightly browned.
  • Immediately upon removing from oven press one lucious, juicy berry in the center of each cookie for a little extra pizazz - if desired.
  • Let cool for1 minute, then remove from cookie sheet to cool completely.
  • Glaze:
  • Stir together all glaze ingredients in small bowl until smooth.
  • Drizzle frosting glaze over cooled cookies.
  • You can easily substitute other favorite jams and berries of your choice.
  • Feel free to indulge in a batch for yourself. Curl up with a good book and enjoy! :-)
