per my kids request we made jelly thumbprints yesterday.  
darn. i keep snacking on them. 
time to visit the neighbors or something.

fun to make with your kids, as it involves them pushing their
cute little thumbs into the cookies before baking.
here goes kids:

thumbprint cookies.

1 c. butter
1/2 c. powdered sugar
1 t. salt
1/2 c. slivered almonds, chopped
1/2 t. vanilla extract
1/2 t. almond extract
2 c. flour

about 1/2 c. or less of blackberry jam (or whatever you desire)

Preheat oven to 350.
In mixer cream butter, powdered sugar and chopped almonds. Add salt. Add extracts, mix to combine. Add flour, mix to combine. Scoop out 1 T. size cookies into round balls and push down in middle with your thumb. Chill in freezer for 5 minutes if you live in phoenix, and its blazing hot. Cook in oven until firm to touch but not too colored, just lightly browned. Let chill, dust with powdered sugar and fill with desired jam. Enjoy with an afternoon iced coffee and a game of checkers.
