1/8 tsp. salt

1/2 tsp. almond extract

Choice of jam or preserves


OPT: Glaze: 1/2 cup powdered sugar, 3/4 tsp. almond extract, 1 tsp. milk


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a medium bowl, combine almond flour, butter, sugar, salt and almond extract. Roll in 3/4 inch size balls. Press an imprint in the center of each one and fill with your choice of jam. I used cherry preserves.
