Yield: Yields about 4 dozen cookies.
These raspberry jam-filled thumbprints are easy to love: They call for a few simple ingredients you’ve likely got on hand, they’re super-easy to make, they’re sweet and nutty, and they’re gorgeous on a cookie platter.
For the best results, measure your flour by weight instead of volume. (1 cup of all-purpose flour equals 4-1/2 oz.) If you don’t have a scale, be sure to use the proper technique when filling your measuring cups.
Super nutty short cookie- not too sweet and perfectly balanced by the jam!! Try a tart apricot preserve with toasted pecan dough, or concord grape with toasted walnut dough! The recipe makes a lot, so plan to mix it up by using a variety of different jams and jellies.
Made these with walnuts too when I ran out of pecans, 1/2 and 1/2.
Light on flavour and too crumbly for my liking. I thought they might have the texture and weight of shortbread but alas, that was not to be!
Made these because I was looking for a way to use up some excess jam in my fridge. The cookie itself is a little light on flavor, not super sweet, and would not be much if it didn't have the jam on top. Also a little too crumbly for my liking. Needs more butter or maybe regular sugar instead of confectioners. Overall, good but not great.
