Sam Choy's Kitchen recipe: Linzer Thumbprints

1 cup butter, softened
1½ cup powder sugar
1 tsp. vanilla extract
½ lemon, lemon zest

Cream the ingredients above in a mixing bowl.

2 egg yolk

Add the egg yolk one at a time and keep mixing.

2 cups flour
1½ cup finely ground almonds
1 Tbsp. cinnamon
½ tsp. ground cloves

Filling:
Raspberry or strawberry jam

Mix in the dry ingredients until the batter is uniform.  Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper or a silicon mat.  Using a 1 oz. disher, scoop the cookie dough and place the cookie dough around 3-4 inches apart (cookie dough will expand a little during baking) Form a well in the center of the cookie dough with your thumb and fill the well with raspberry or strawberry jam.  Bake at 350 degrees F in the oven for about 12 minutes.  Turn the pan halfway during baking to ensure even baking.  Cool and dust with powdered sugar.  Enjoy!
