Ingredients

  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 1 cup butter - softened
  • 1/2 tsp almond extract
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1/2 cup raspberry jam

    Glaze

  • 1 cup powdered sugar

Instructions
In a large mixing bowl, combine sugar, butter and extract. Beat at medium speed until light and creamy. Reduce speed and add flour. Beat until well mixed. Cover and chill at least one hour. Heat oven to 350F. Shape into 1 inch balls and place 2 inches apart on a cookie sheet. With your thumb, make a depression in the top center of each cookie ball. Don't worry if sides crack somewhat. Fill the hole with 1/4 tsp of raspberry jam. Bake for 14 to 18 minutes until lightly browned. Let stand for 1 minute before removing from baking sheet. Cool completely.

Mix glaze in small bowl while cookies cool and drizzle over top. Let set until glaze firms. Makes 3 1/2 dozen.
