Almond Raspberry Thumbprints


These cookies are amazing. Like the best. I had to pass some of these along to our neighbors so that I didn't eat every single one. They were also way easier to make than I anticipated. This recipe is adapted from Cooking Classy.

Cookies:
2 cups plus 2 tbsp flour
1/4 tsp salt
1 cup unsalted butter (cold and cut into 1 tbsp pieces)
2/3 cup sugar
1/2 tsp almond extract
1/2 cup raspberry jam

Glaze:
1 cup powdered sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
2-4 tsp water

In a bowl whisk together flour and salt. In the bowl of an electric stand mixer combine the butter and sugar using the paddle attachment. Scrap the bowl down. Mix in the almond extract then add the flour mixture. Shape the dough into 1 inch balls and place 2 inches apart on an ungreased baking sheet. Carefully make a small indention with your finger. Fill each indention with raspberry jam. Chill in the refrigerator for 20 minutes. While the cookies are chilling, preheat the oven to 350. Bake in the oven for 14-18 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool on baking sheet for 4-5 minutes before removing to a wire rack to cool. Once the cookies are cooled make the glaze. Whisk together the powdered sugar, vanilla extract and water until it's smooth and easy to drizzle. Place the glaze in a small ziplock bag and cut the tip of the bag off. Drizzle the glaze over the cookies.
