I've looked in Part 61.1 and Part 1.1 (definitions), and looked for it in Advisory Circular 61-65H, "Certification: Pilots and Flight and Ground Instructors", and a definition of "Endorsement" is not included among them.

What is the FAA's official way of defining what constitutes and endorsement?

    $\begingroup$ If it isn't defined in the FARs, then a common definition would be appropriate. $\endgroup$

Page 1 of Advisary Circular AC61-65H says:

Endorsements represent training requirements completed and privileges granted. This AC helps airmen and instructors ensure that all training is completed and documented clearly and concisely. An endorsement marks and formalizes events such as an operating privilege or authorization granted or a limitation incurred.

The best definition I have found is "an endorsement attests to the completion of ground and/or flight training required for airman certification testing, or for specific operating privileges." FAA Resource Library. I don't believe the FAA explicitly defines endorsement in any of 14 CFR.
