Preheat oven to 350ºF. Grease two baking sheets, or line with parchment paper.
In a large bowl, add butter and sugar; combine at medium speed for 3 minutes.
Add egg, vanilla extract, and almond extract; combine at medium-high speed for 2 minutes.
Set mixer to low speed and add flour, one cup at a time, and salt until completely blended.
Use a small scoop or large tablespoon to portion dough and roll them into balls. Arrange cookie dough balls on the prepared baking sheets.
Place your thumb at a slight left angle and press deeply into the middle of the dough. Repeat at a slight right angle, to create a heart shape.
Bake at 350ºF for 12-14 minutes, until cookies are lightly golden and beginning to crack on the edges. Remove from oven and let them rest for 2 minutes.
Using a spatula, transfer the cookies to a cooling rack to cool completely. Then, use 1 tablespoon of jam or preserves to fill each heart shaped indentation.
