Best Damn Cookies

Y’all, these cookies are the definition of the holidays for me! My momma would make these every year growing up and they are SO GOOD! My sister would come home from collage and all of her friends would request them! They are hands down my favorite treat! And I don’t even like jelly!!


What you need:

3/4 cup of sugar

1 teaspoon of salt

3/4 cup of softened butter

2 egg YOLKS (reserve the whites)

1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

1/2 teaspoon of almond extract

2 cups of flour

2 egg WHITES

1 1/2 of chopped almonds

1/2 cup of raspberry preserves


How to:

In a large bowl, combine sugar, salt, butter, egg YOLK, vanilla, and almond extract. Blend and medium spend for 1 minute. Then, lightly spoon in flour and blend mixture until completely mixed.

Roll dough into 1-inch balls. Dip dough into beaten egg WHITES, then crushed nuts. Repeat until all dough is used. Place on greased cookie sheet, 2 inches apart, make a deep depression in center of each cookie with finger tip (I use the end of a round spoon).

Bake at 350 for 10-13 minutes until firm to touch or lightly browned. DO NOT OVERBAKE. IMMEDIATELY remove from cookie sheet!!! While warm, fill center with a small drop of jelly preserves. This recipe makes about 3 to 4 dozen!
