  • 2 cups blanched almond flour
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter softened
  • 2 oz. cream cheese, room temperture
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 large egg yoke
  • 2 tsp almond extract
  • 1/4 cup cherry jam
  • 3/4 cup sliced almonds


  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 4 tsp whole milk


  • Step 1/ In a small bowl, whisk almond flour, all-purpose flour, baking powder, and salt to combine. In the large bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the whisk attachment (or in a large bowl using an electric mixer), beat powdered sugar, butter, and cream cheese on medium speed until pale and fluffy. Scrape down sides of bowl.
    Add egg, egg yolk, and almond extract and beat to combine. Add one-third of dry ingredients and beat until just combined. Repeat in 2 batches with remaining dry ingredients. Scrape down sides of bowl, cover with plastic wrap, and refrigerate until dough is firm to the touch, about 2 hours. 
    Step 2/ Meanwhile, preheat oven to 375°. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment or silicone baking mats. Freeze baking sheets 15 minutes. 
    Step 3/ Using a medium cookie scoop (about 1 1/2 tablespoons), portion dough into 24 balls. Using a 1/2 teaspoon measuring spoon or small spoon, make a small well on top of each ball. Fill well with 1/2 teaspoon jam. Press 9 to 10 almonds around outside of each ball, then arrange on prepared sheets.
    Step 4/ Bake until edges are golden brown, 12 to 14 minutes. Let cool completely on baking sheets.
