Raspberry Shorbread Cookies


These cookies are easy and so yummy. They really make me happy! So here is the recipe and Kelly, sorry it took me so long to get this out!

1 cup butter, softened
2/3 cup sugar
1/2 tsp. almond extract
2 cups flour
1/3 to 1/2 cup seedless raspberry jam

Glaze:
1 cup powdered sugar
2-3 tsp. water
1/2 tsp. almond extract

Preheat oven to 350.
In mixing bowl, cream butter and sugar. Beat in extract; gradually add flour until dough forms a ball. Cover and refrigerate for 1 hour - (I never do this part...it seems to dry out here in Colorado). Roll into 1 inch balls. Place 1 inch apart on ungreased baking sheet. Using the end of a wooden spoon handle,make indentions in centers. Fill with jam. Bake for 14 - 18 min. Cool. Drizzle with glaze.
I usually double the glaze!
