Author/Submitted by: Land O'Lakes
Servings: 42
Categories: Cookies / Desserts

2/3  cup  sugar
1  cup  butter, softened
1/2  teaspoon  almond extract
2  cups  all-purpose flour
1/2  cup  raspberry jam
1  cup  powdered sugar
1 1/2  teaspoons  almond extract
2    to
3  teaspoons  water

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a large mixer bowl, combine sugar, butter, and almond extract. Beat at medium speed, scraping bowl often, until creamy (1 to 2 minutes). Reduce speed to low; add flour. Continue beating until well-mixed (1 to 2 minutes). Shape dough into 1" balls. Place 2 inches apart on cookie sheets. With thumb, make indentation in center of each cookie (edges may crack slightly). Fill each indentation with about 1/4 teaspoon jam. Bake for 14 to 18 minutes or until edges are lightly browned. Let stand on cookie sheet for 1 minute before removing to a wire rack to cool. In a small bowl, stir together powdered sugar and 1 1/2 teaspoons almond extract. Gradually stir in enough water to make a thin glaze. Drizzle over cooled cookies.
