Strawberry Sesame Cookies

Strawberry Sesame Cookies


1 cup butter, softened

1/2 cup sugar

1 teaspoon almond extract

2 cups all-purpose flour

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/4 cup plus 3 tablespoons sesame seeds

6 tablespoons strawberry jam


In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in extract. Combine flour and salt; gradually add to the creamed mixture and mix well.

Roll into 1-in. balls; roll in sesame seeds. Place 2 in. apart on ungreased baking sheets.

Using the end of a wooden spoon handle, make an 3/8-in. deep indentation in the center of each ball. Fill with jam. Bake at 400° for 10-12 minutes or until lightly browned. Remove to wire racks to cool. Makes 4 dozen.

Very delicious unique cookie. Thanks again to Anna for sharing this recipe with me!
