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.
