  • stand mixer or hand mixer
  • baking sheet
  • parchment paper


  • ¾ cup all purpose flour use the scoop and level method or a kitchen scale to measure this
  • ¾ cup almond flour use the scoop and level method or a kitchen scale to measure this
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ cup butter cold
  • ¼ cup + 1 tablespoon granulated sugar
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ¼ teaspoon almond extract
  • ½ cup jam I used strawberry jam and apricot jat


  • First start by preheating the oven to 350F, then line a large baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
  • In a large bowl, mix the all purpose flour, almond flour and salt and set aside.
  • In a stand mixer bowl, cream the butter and the granulated sugar together until light and fluffy. Add in the vanilla extract and the almond extract and mix just until incorporated.
  • Add the flour mixture and mix using the paddle attachement. The dough will come together after about 60 seconds of mixing.
  • Using a measuring tablespoon, scoop out 1 tablespoon worth of cookie dough, roll it between the palm of your hands and place it on the baking sheet. Continue until you are done with all the cookie dough. Now, using the back of a measuring ½ teaspoon (or your thumb) press onto the cookie dough balls that are on the baking sheet to make the perfect little well where the jam will go.
  • Fill your cookie with about ½ teaspoon of jam in each well, and bake for 12-13 minutes in the oven. Let the cookies cool on the baking sheet for 5-10 minutes then move to a cooling rack.


How can I store these cookies?

You can store these cookies in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 4 days or in the fridge for 7 days. You can also freeze these cookies for up to 2 months. Just make sure to thaw them in the fridge overnight before serving them! 

Help my cookie dough is too crumbly.

Your cookie dough might look slightly crumbly but to the touch, it will be soft and will come together easily into a ball shape. 
If it doesn't that means that you used more flour/almond flour than you needed to. Make sure to use a kitchen scale of the scoop and level method to measure those two dry ingredients for better results!
