  • Summary

    A signature Christmastime sweet, our tiny almond-flavored cookies bear the print of the baker's thumb, which is gently pressed into the partially baked cookie to create a well. A dollop of apricot, red currant, or raspberry jam fills the center. If you use fruit preserves you've put up yourself, the signature is even more personal.

    Ingredients

    • 1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, room temperature
    • 1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons sugar
    • 1 large egg yolk, plus 1 large egg white, lightly beaten
    • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
    • 1 1/4 cups unbleached all-purpose flour
    • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
    • 1/2 cup blanched almonds, finely ground
    • 1/2 cup jam or preserves, such as apricot, red currant, or raspberry, strained if desired
