Raspberry Thumbprint Cookies
Thanksgiving is over and time to make the cookies! It is definitely time to think about what you are making for Christmas and one of the best things are cookies. Do you agree? Do you have any family favorites? We have a couple which I’ll mention later but I’m always on the lookout for some new ones to try.
I first saw this recipe over at the Land O Lakes website and since then, well, I have seen them all over town! I guess I’m not the only one who loves raspberry thumbprint cookies. I think you will too. The cookie part is buttery with a hint of almond, topped with sweet raspberry jam and drizzled with an almond glaze.
What ingredients are needed for Raspberry Thumbprint Cookies?
- Almond extract
- Raspberry jam
- Powdered sugar
It is really important to follow the recipe exactly as stated using Land O Lakes butter. I read on a few other blogs that some folks did not have good luck so go with the tried and true recipe that follows below with that butter.
One substitution you could make is if you aren’t a fan of almond extract, is using vanilla and a different kind of jam would be fine too. It’s just the butter you need to keep the same.
As I mentioned, we do have some family favorites. My son-in-law really loves these Triple Ginger Cookies as they do have 3 different kinds of ginger to give them a little bit of a bite and they have chunks of chocolate. They are soooo good and also easy to make. If I leave a plate out, they disappear quick!
We also love these Italian Black Pepper cookies. They are a blast from my past and always on our cookie tray and happen to be a favorite of my husband. It’s a cherished recipe from my Italian grandmother.
So now you have a few new cookies to try! Keep calm and get baking, you have a little over a month before Christmas! You may also like some other cookies that are below from some of my blogger friends!
Be sure to pin this recipe to make later!
I did find when I used my thumb, the cookies spread too much so I used the back of a 1/4 teaspoon to make the indentation. You could use a seedless jam if desired
