From Bay City, Texas, Mildred Sherrer writes, "Raspberry jam adds fruity sweetness to these rich-tasting cookies. They will absolutely melt in your mouth!"


1 cup butter, softened⅔ cup sugar½ tsp almond extract2 cup all-purpose flour⅓ cup to 1/2 cup seedless raspberry jam1 cup confectioners' sugar½ tsp almond extract2 tsp to 3 teaspoons water


1. In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in extract; gradually add flour until dough forms a ball. Cover and refrigerate for 1 hour or until dough is easy to handle.

2. Roll into 1-in. balls. Place 1 in. apart on ungreased baking sheets. Using the end of a wooden spoon handle, make an indentation in the center. Fill with jam.

3. Bake at 350° for 14-18 minutes or until edges are lightly browned. Remove to wire racks to cool.

4. Spoon additional jam into cookies if desired. Combine confectioners' sugar, extract and enough water to achieve drizzling consistency; drizzle over cookies.

Yield: about 3-1/2 dozen.
