Ingredients

1 c
butter (room tempertature)
2/3 c
sugar
1/2 tsp
almond extract
2 c
all-purpose flour
1/3-1/2 c
fruit preserves (your favorite)

GLAZE

1 c
confectioner's sugar
2-3 tsp
water
1/2 tsp
almond extract

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Cream butter and sugar together. Beat in extract; slowly adding flour to the mix until the dough makes a ball.
*You may refrigerate for about an hour if you wish but it is not needed.
2
Form small 1 inch balls in your hand and set them on a baking pan lined with parchment paper.
3
Use your thumb to stamp each ball. This will make a small indentation on the cookie to fill with your preserve. Add your preserve; making sure that it will not spill over when baking.

5
Cool and then drizzle with glaze.
