    Lovely almond cookie! I used a clove spiced cherry preserve, and my guests loved it. I left off the drizzle, as it was sweet enough.

    Made these cookies to have for dessert for Easter and they are delicious! I made them with raspberry and blackberry jam and since I still have almond paste leftover, I'm going to make more using different flavored jams.

    I wonder if the almond paste can be replaced with marzipan?

    Made these to take to a dinner with people I didn't know. They were a huge hit and 2 people asked for the recipe.

    These cookies are absolutely delicious! In response to previous post, I wouldn't sub the almond paste, it adds the chewy texture and unique flavor to the cookies. I think without the almond past the cookie would become dry and crunchy like a biscotti. I will make a double batch next time I make these cookies, they were that good!

    I made this cookie last Friday, December 5, for a luncheon and prayer meeting for nine ladies. I baked one-fourth of the recipe using raspberry jam. They are fantastic and so easy to make. I will make the rest next week using apricot and raspberry jam.
