Sesame Cookies

The hub picked up some vegetarian sushi (a first for both of us) from a local place that we paired with a side of rice for dinner tonight. The sushi was seriously awesome annnnd just $4.99. Can't beat that! I hopped online and searched for a quick dessert to pair it with and came across
these Sesame Cookies.
*Disclaimer: These are awwwful for you, but really yummy. :)

(Not the prettiest things in the world...but they're good.)

1 cup butter (!)
1/4 cup sugar
1 tsp. almond extract
1/2 tsp. salt
2 cups all-purpose flour
Sesame seeds
Any flavor fruit jam
Directions: Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Cream the butter and sugar together. Add the almond extract and salt. Stir in the flour and mix well. Shape tablespoonfuls of the dough into walnut-sized balls then roll the balls in sesame seeds to cover. Place balls on an ungreased cookie sheet and flatten slightly. With your thumb, indent the center of each cookie. Fill indentations with jam (we actually did this step after the fact). Bake at 400 degrees for 10 to 12 minutes (we had to add a few minutes to our baking time). Store in an air-tight container.
