1 hr 00 min


  • Butter – 1 cup, softened
  • White sugar – 2/3 cup
  • Almond extract – ½ tsp + ¾ tsp, divided
  • All-purpose flour – 2 cups
  • Raspberry jam (seedless) – ½ cup
  • Confectioner’s sugar – ½ cup
  • Milk – 1 tsp
  • While preheating oven to 350°F/180°C/Gas Mark 4, cream butter with sugar until very smooth. Add ½ tsp of almond extract, stir well. Mix in flour in small batches until the dough is thick enough to come together.
  • Roll small balls (1 ½ inch in diameter) and place them on cookie sheets lined with parchment paper. With your thumb, poke a hole in the center of each ball and fill it with raspberry jam.
  • Bake for about 15 minutes (up to 18) until golden brown. Let cool for a minute and transfer to a wire rack to cool.
  • Mix the remaining almond extract with milk and confectioner’s sugar until smooth. Drizzle the glazes over the cookies while still warm.
