- 1 cup butter, softened
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1 tsp almond extract
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1/2 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/3 cup sesame seeds
- 6 tbsp apricot jam
In a large bowl beat butter and sugar until fluffy. Beat in extract. Combine flour, salt and baking powder, gradually add to the creamed mixture and mix well.
Roll into 1-in balls, roll into sesame seeds. Place 2 in. apart on ungreased baking sheets.
Using the end of a wooden spoon handle make an indentation in the center of each ball, fill with jam.As you can see it in the pictures, I mixed half of the dough with 1 tbsp cocoa. Tasted just as great. I rolled some in coconut flakes. Delicious too.
Bake them at 400 degrees for 10-12 minutes until lightly brown.
Believe it or not, there's only 5 pieces left of it... It's easy to make and they really melt in your mouth!
