Winter’s Palate: Raspberry Almond Thumbprint Cookies

by Savannah Wade

Ingredients:

  • 2/3 cup white sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon almond extract
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup seedless raspberry jam
  • 1/2 cup confectioners’ sugar
  • 3/4 teaspoon almond extract
  • 1 teaspoon milk

Directions:

First, preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Then, in a medium bowl, cream together butter and white sugar until smooth. Mix in the almond extract. Mix in flour until dough comes together. Roll dough into 1 1/2 inch balls, and place on ungreased cookie sheets. Make a small hole in the center of each ball, using your thumb and finger, and fill the hole with preserves. Bake for 14 to 18 minutes, or until lightly browned. Let cool for one minute on the cookie sheet.

In a medium bowl, mix together the confectioners’ sugar, 3/4 teaspoon almond extract and milk until smooth. Drizzle lightly over warm cookies.
