Lemon Blackberry Thumbdrop Cookies

Had the urge to bake cookies today!

I used our usual Thumbdrop Cookie Recipe (below) but swapped out the almond extract for two teaspoons of lemon extract, and filled the cookies with blackberry jam.

They’re very tasty, and imagine they’d be really nice with ‘afternoon tea’ or the like, as they are somewhat delicate in flavor with that burst of berry. Happy Friday!
