I love this recipe. My mom made these every Christmas when I was a kid and now I make them. I add 1/2 tsp vanilla and 1/2 tsp almond extract to the cookie recipe. Then I make icing with butter, powdered sugar and milk and add 1/4 tsp almond and 1/2 tsp vanilla to the icing. Instead of jam and put a icing on them. I roll the cookies in pecans though and bake them 5 mins at 375 push you thumb in the middle and bake them for another 8 to 10 minutes. The almond extract really adds to the recipe and they are soooo good!!

These were very good, and easy to make. I rolled the cookies in the crushed almonds, because that is my preference. I also used strawberry jam, because that was what I had on hand.
