Raspberry Shortbread




  1. Heat oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly grease 2 cookie sheets.

  4. Make a 1/2-inch wide x 1/4-inch deep indentation down center of each strip, using the handle of a wooden spoon.
  5. Bake, in 2 batches, for 15 minutes.
  6. Remove from oven, and spoon jam into indentations.
  7. Bake 5 more minutes or until lightly browned.
  8. Whisk together confectioners' sugar, water and almond extract; drizzle over warm shortbread. Cut each strip diagonally into 12 (1-inch-wide) slices.
