How do you make these cookies?

  1. Cream together your butter and sugars for about 3-5 minutes. It will become light and fluffy (you will be tempted to eat it, but don’t).
  2. Add your flour, lemon juice and almond extract. It should come together to form a dough. If it is still a bit too dry, you can add 1 tsp of water or milk at a time until it does.
  3. Take two pieces of parchment paper and place your dough between them. Roll out your dough until it is around 1/4 inch thick.
  4. Bake the cookies in the fridge for at least one hour.
  5. Set the oven to 350°F and bake your cookies for 12-14 minutes after they have properly chilled.
  6. Let the cookies sit on the cookie sheet for 10 minutes after the have finished cooking. Let them cool completely.
  7. Take the tops of your cookies and sprinkle them with icing sugar (powdered sugar).
  8. Take your bases and fill with a bit of jam- not too much as it will spread when you place the tops on.
