Learn how to make raspberry thumbprint cookies.What You Need:
NOTE: This makes a LOT of cookies! You can cut this dough in half, use one half, and freeze the other for another time.
Shape rounded teaspoonfuls of dough into balls. Place 1 inch apart on cookie sheets. Press thumb into centers of cookies, making deep indentations. Bake 10 minutes.
Remove from oven, and with 1/3 cup red raspberry preserves* fill indentations. Bake 5 minutes; immediately remove and cool cookies on racks.
*You can vary this recipe by using different flavored preserves. I have used blackberry, strawberry, mixed berry and boysenberry all with excellent results.Recommended Books/Products:
