1 ½ cups of confectioners sugar
1 cup butter, softened
1 tsp. vanilla
½ tsp. almond extract (I normally substitute orange)
2½ cups flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. cream of tartar
Mix confectioners sugar, butter, egg, vanilla and almond extract. Mix in flour, baking soda, and cream of tartar. Cover and refrigerate at least 2 hours. Heat oven to 375 °F. Divide dough into halves. Roll each half 1/4 inch thick on lightly floured board. Cut into shapes. Place on lightly greased sheet. Bake until edges are light brown, 7-8 minutes.
Sandwich a scant half-teaspoon of jelly between two disc-cut shapes before baking. When cool, drizzle with a mixture of ½ cup white chocolate chips that have been melted and flavored with ½ teaspoon of fruit-flavored extract and softened with a teaspoon of Crisco.
