This is a favorite holiday cookie recipe from my Taste of Home temp-tations® Holiday Cookbook. They're crisp and buttery, with a hint of almond and a touch of sweetness from the raspberry jam.


  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon almond extract
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup seedless raspberry jam


  • 1/3 cup confectioners’ sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon almond extract
  • 1 teaspoon water


  1. In a large bowl, cream butter, sugar and extract until light and fluffy. Add flour and mix well. Chill for 1 hour. 
  2. Preheat oven to350°. Roll into 1-in. balls. Place 2 in. apart on greased temp-tations® 13x9 inch Lid-Its®. Using the end of a wooden spoon handle, make an indentation in the center of each and fill with 1⁄4 teaspoon jam. Bake 13-16 minutes or until the edges are lightly browned. Remove to wire racks to cool completely. 
  3. For glaze, in a small bowl, combine the confectioners’ sugar, extract and water. Drizzle over cookies.
