This is it. The last day of the cookie exchange party - blog style. I would like to thank those of you that left a recipe in the comments this week. I hope you have enjoyed this and that your family enjoys some new cookie recipes this Christmas. It was hard to choose which ones to post because I have so many that we love.
1 cup butter
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 tsp. almond extract
2 egg yolks
2 egg whites
2 cups flour
2 cups chopped walnuts or pecans
jam - any flavor you like
Cream butter and sugars together and add almond extract and egg yolks.
Stir until blended.
Add flour and beat until dough forms.
Roll dough into 1 inch balls and dip into egg whites and then in nuts.
Make an indention in the center of cookie and fill with jam.
Bate at 325 degrees for 10-12 minutes.
Remove to wire rack to cool.
*Jam - My favorite is either blackberry, raspberry or strawberry but you can you use any flavor of jam that you like.
