    Lennie's Note:

    Cookies of this type are usually rolled in beaten egg white, which I find a fussy step. That is why I like this recipe so much; it's tasty AND easy. I found it back in the 1980s in a Norene Gilletz book. They look wonderful on a cookie tray.

    My Private Note

    Ingredients:

    Yield:

    cookies

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Preheat oven to 350F; line cookie sheets with parchment paper and set aside.
    2. 2
      In a food processor fitted with steel blade, process walnuts and 1/4 cup of the flour until nuts are quite finely chopped; remove from processor into a dish and set aside.
    3. 3
      Place remaining flour into food processor, along with butter and icing sugar; process until mixture has a crumbly texture, about 10 seconds or so.
    4. 4
      Return nut mixture to food processor, along with almond extract and the egg.
    5. 5
      Process until entire mixture is combined; 15 seconds or so.
    6. 6
      Make one-inch balls from mixture and place on prepared cookie sheet; using the end of a wooden spoon, make an indentation into each cookie.
    7. 7
      Fill each hole with a wee bit of jam; I prefer seedless raspberry, but will use strawberry too-- I find the red jams suit the holiday season, but you can use any jam you want.
    8. 8
      Bake in preheated oven for 15 to 18 minutes, or until golden brown.

      These were so easy to make, i am making dozens to give away this Christmas. I made one mistake and tried a batch with wholemeal flour..don't, they just didn't taste right. My only change would be to add a little more icing sugar as another person suggested. However excellent mini cookies.

      I've never done what amounts to being a thumbprint style cookie before, but this recipe made it a very good experience! Oh and this was also the first time that I ever mixed an entire recipe in my little food processor, a fascinating experience! UPDATE; I've made this a few more times since and I highly recommend increasing the amount of confectioner's (icing) sugar as the cookie is much better sweeter! I've tried it @ 3/4 c. but I may even up it to a full cup the next time i make it! Thanks for sharing the recipe!

      These cookies went together very easily but they were dry and had no taste. I had to throw the whole batch away because I just couldn't put them on my Christmas platters. I had such high expectations too... sorry!
