Raspberry chocolate chip cookies

1/2 cup butter
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
1/3 cup white sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon almond
3 tablespoons milk
1 1/3 cups unbleached all-purpose flour
1/4 cup cornstarch
1/4 cup miniature semisweet chocolate chips
about 1/3 cup raspberry jam

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). In a large bowl, cream butter with brown sugar and 1/3 cup white sugar. Blend in the vanilla, almond extract and milk. Mix in the flour and corn starch. Stir in the mini chocolate chips.
Form the dough into 1 inch balls. Place on the prepared cookie sheet, about 1 1/2 inches apart. Use your thumb to press straight down into the center of each ball, making a well for the jam. Neatly fill each cookie with a small amount of jam.
Bake in preheated oven for 13 to 15 minutes, or until cookies are just beginning to turn golden around the edges. Let cookies cool before eating.

Oh my, these look absolutely delicious. I do believe I will have to try these and perhaps some variations in the jam used to fill them.
