    I stirred almond extract into the apricot jam for an extra almond punch. The cookie was just a tiny bit dry, and i'm not sure why, but they were delicious.

    Perfect winter/Christmas cookies! Worked great from the first try. Only thing I did different is use vanilla bean and not the extract, and it's great! Cn't wait to make new batch! :D

    I was eager to try these cookies to expand my Christmas cookie repertoire. I followed the instructions to the letter and they came out exactly as pictured - beautiful! However, my family wasn't crazy about them. The almond butter is overpowering, they are overly sweet being rolled in sugar (I would omit this step if making them again), and we don't find the apricot jam is the best complement. Just for fun I filled a few with chocolate-hazelnut spread - vast improvement!
