Choose any flavor of seedless jam for this buttery cookie!
1 cup butter, softened (no substitutes)
2/3 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon almond extract
2 cups all-purpose flour
1/3 cup seedless raspberry jam (or flavor of choice)

Glaze:
1 cup confectioners' sugar
2 to 3 teaspoons milk
1/2 teaspoon almond extract
1 drop of red food coloring
In a mixing bowl, cream butter and sugar. Beat in extract; gradually add flour until dough forms a ball. Cover and refrigerate for 1 hour or until easy to handle.

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

Bake at 350 degrees for 13-15 minutes or until edges are lightly browned. Remove to wire racks to cool. Combine glaze ingredients; drizzle over cookies.

Makes approximately 3-1/2 dozen cookies.
