  1. 1-1/4 cups butter, softened
  2. 1 cup sugar
  3. 2 Eggland's Best Eggs
  4. 3 cups all-purpose flour
  5. 1 tablespoon baking cocoa
  6. 1/2 teaspoon salt
  7. 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  8. 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  9. 1/8 teaspoon ground cloves
  10. 2 cups ground almonds
  11. 6 tablespoons seedless raspberry jam
  12. 3 tablespoons confectioners' sugar
  1. In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Combine the flour, cocoa, salt and spices; gradually add to creamed mixture and mix well. Stir in almonds. Refrigerate for 1 hour or until easy to handle.
  2. On a lightly floured surface, roll out dough to 1/8-in. thickness. Cut with a floured 2-1/2-in. round cookie cutter. From the center of half of the cookies, cut out a 1-1/2-in. shape.
  3. Place on ungreased baking sheets. Bake at 350° for 10-12 minutes or until edges are golden brown. Remove to wire racks to cool.
  4. Spread the bottom of each solid cookie with 1/2 teaspoon jam. Sprinkle cutout cookies with confectioners' sugar; carefully place over jam. Yield: 3 dozen.
