Remove to a wire rack to cool. If needed, rethumbprint cookies while still warm. When cool fill with jam or preserves.
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Beat butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add brown sugar and salt; beat well. Beat in egg yolks and almond extract. Add flour, beating until well combined. Shape dough into 1-inch balls. Roll the balls of dough in the slightly beaten egg whites. Then roll in nuts. Arrange on ungreased cookie sheets. Press the center of each cookie leaving a thumbprint.
