I’ve made these for about 20 years. A fragrant butter cookie base is brushed with a thin layer of jam, which shows as a delicate stripe under the topping of glazed almond slices—very tailored looking.

Because these addictive cookies are easy to make in quantity—a large sheet is cut into neat 1-inch squares—they are ideal for a large party or for giving as gifts.
