Ingredients

1 cup Land O Lakes® Butter softened

3/4 cup sugar

2 large Land O Lakes® Eggs

1 teaspoon almond extract

3 cups all-purpose flour

1 (10-ounce) jar strawberry or raspberry all-fruit spread

1/2 cup sliced almonds

How to make

  1. STEP 1

    Combine butter, sugar, eggs, and almond extract in large bowl. Beat at medium speed, scraping bowl often, until creamy. Add flour; beat at low speed until well mixed.

  2. STEP 2

    Divide dough into 8 equal portions. Roll each portion into 8-inch log on lightly floured surface. Wrap in plastic food wrap; refrigerate 2 hours or overnight until firm.

  3. STEP 3

    Heat oven to 350°F.

  4. STEP 4

    Place 4 logs onto large ungreased cookie sheet. Pat each log into 2-inch wide strip. Press 1-inch wide indentation lengthwise down the center of each strip using back of spoon. Bake 16-19 minutes or until edges are lightly browned.

  5. STEP 5

    Spoon about 2 tablespoons fruit spread into indentation of each log; sprinkle with sliced almonds. Immediately cut diagonally into 1-inch pieces. Repeat with remaining dough, jam and almonds.

Tip #1

Since each log is rolled individually, you can freeze some and use later. Thaw dough 30 to 45 minutes before baking.

THIS IS ONE OF THE OTHER COOKIE'S I MADE FOR A DESSERT TABLE. EVERYONE LIKED THEM. I USED STRAWBERRY AND BLUEBERRY PRESERVE'S. DID NOT TOP WITH THE ALMOND SLICE'S BECAUSE OF A NUT FREE FAMILY. DUSTED THE END'S WITH A LITTLE POWDERED SUGAR. LOOKED LIKE RED, WHITE AND BLUE. GOOD FOR 4TH OF JULY PICNIC. I FOUND THE COOKIE A LITTLE TOUGH, BUT I THINK MAYBE I HANDLED THE DOUGH TOO MUCH. I WILL MAKE THESE AGAIN WITH LESS HANDLING. JCB

These were easy to make and so yummy! Makes tons of cookies bars. I used apricot preserves instead of strawberry or raspberry and they were great.
