Jam Almond Drizzled Shortbread

(a variation of the Jam Filled Shortbreads from a couple of weeks ago)


* 1 cup butter, softened
* 2/3 cup sugar
* 1/2 teaspoon almond extract
* 2 cups all-purpose flour
* 1/3 cup jam (your choice)
* 1 cup confectioners' sugar
* 3 teaspoons water
* 1/2 teaspoon almond extract


1. 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 1-in. balls. Place 1 in. apart on ungreased baking sheets.
Using your thumb, make an indentation in the center. Fill with jam.
2. Bake at 350F for 14-18 minutes or until edges are lightly browned. Remove to wire racks to cool. Spoon additional jam into cookies if desired.

Combine glaze ingredients; drizzle over cookies.
