Raspberry Thumbprint Cookies are made with nutty dough and loaded with a hint of tart raspberry flavor. They're buttery, tender-crumbed, sweetened just right and perfect for Christmas baking.
Thumbprints are one of the most classic Christmas cookies you can bake during the holidays. Every bite just crumbles and melts in your mouth. It's a classic Christmas cookie that is hard to pass up.
Raspberry is my favorite flavor, but you're welcome to substitute with other fruit flavors. You can even use a combination of different flavors of jam. It'll give you an amazing variety of cookies to serve.
How To Make The Thumbprint Cookies
- Combine softened butter with sugar. To the mixture add egg yolk and vanilla.
- To the ingredients add flour, salt, and chopped pecans.
- Form cookies by scooping out mounds of the cookie dough. Make a well in the middle of the cookie and fill it with raspberry jam.
- Bake the cookies at 350F for about 30 minutes or until they're golden brown.
