I saw this cookie recipe in the Allrecipes magazine December/January 2014 issue on page. 43. I decided to finally try the recipe, as I have had it saved for quite some time in my recipe box. I wanted to see how it would work for a Christmas time cookie swap. I liked how the recipe was easy to follow and the cookies held up very well. I am not a big fan of almond extract, but the flavor was very mild in the cookie. My only surprise, was what a butter tasting this was compared to similar recipes. I didn't fill them too much, as I assumed the jam would boil over the cookie. It actually stayed exactly where I put it. Only change I made was reducing the almond extract by 1/3 on the icing and added 1.5 tsp. more of milk for the right consistency. I also waited after 15 minutes of cooling time to drizzle it on, so it didn't melt. The recipe yielded 2 dozen using a standard cookie scoop. It's a simple cookie, but overall it would add variety to a cookie tray especially if other jams were used. ty
