Get started!


1 cup Land O Lakes® Butter, softened

3/4 cup sugar

2 large Land O Lakes® Eggs

1/2 teaspoon almond extract

2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

1 cup ground blanched slivered almonds

1 cup all-fruit spread such as raspberry or blackberry

1/2 cup sliced almonds

How to make

  1. STEP 1

    Combine butter and sugar in large bowl. Beat at medium speed, scraping bowl often, until creamy. Add eggs, at a time, and almond extract; continue beating until well mixed. Add flour and 1 cup ground almonds; beat at low speed until well mixed.

  2. STEP 2

    Divide dough in half. Wrap each half in plastic food wrap, rolling each out into 4-inch log. Refrigerate 2 hours or overnight until firm.

  3. STEP 3

    Heat oven to 350°F. 

  4. STEP 4

    Divide 1 dough log into 4 equal pieces. Roll out each piece into 6-inch log on lightly floured surface. Place each piece onto large parchment-lined cookie sheet. Pat each log into 1 1/2-inch-wide strip. Press 1-inch-wide indentation lengthwise down center of each strip using finger. Spoon 1-2 tablespoons fruit spread into indentation of each log. Bake 15-18 minutes or until edges are lightly browned.

  5. STEP 5

    Sprinkle with sliced almonds. Cut diagonally into 1-inch pieces while cookies are still warm. Cool completely on cookie sheet. Repeat with remaining dough, jam and almonds.
