Preheat the oven to 180°C/350°F/Gas mark 4.

Grease a baking tray lightly with butter.

Sift the icing sugar together with the flour, ground almonds and cornflour into a bowl and mix well.

Tip the butter into the flour mixture and using your fingertips, rub the butter into the flour until it resembles fine breadcrumbs.

Add the almond essence and stir well.

Transfer the mixture onto a lightly floured surface and gently knead until a smooth dough is formed.

Using a floured rolling pin, roll the dough out and cut the dough using a 6cm cookie cutter. Transfer to the baking tray and flatten the centre of each cookie a little with your finger tips.

Bake in the oven for 8-12 minutes until light golden in colour.

Remove from the oven and leave on the baking tray to cool for a 15 minutes.

Once cooled, dust with icing sugar and using a teaspoon, fill the small hollow centre with jam.
