    Title: Berry Shortbread Dreams
    Categories: Cookies, Fruits
    Yield: 42 servings

    1 c Butter; softened
    2/3 c Sugar
    1/2 ts Almond extract
    2 c A-P flour
    1/2 c Seedless raspberry jam; more
    - if desired

    1 c Confectioners' sugar
    1/2 ts Almond extract
    2 ts (to 3) water

    In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar until light and
    fluffy, 5 to 7 minutes. Beat in extract; gradually add
    flour until dough forms a ball. Cover and refrigerate
    until dough is easy to handle, about 1 hour.

    Set oven @ 350ºF/175ºC.

    Roll into 1" balls. Place 1" apart on ungreased baking
    sheets. Using the end of a wooden spoon handle, make an
    indentation in the center of each ball; fill with jam.

    Bake until edges are lightly browned, 14-18 minutes.
    Remove to wire racks to cool completely.

    If desired, spoon additional jam into cookies. Combine
    confectioners' sugar, extract and enough water to
    achieve drizzling consistency; drizzle over cookies.
