Raspberry Thumbprint Cookies

These cookies are absolutely delicious! They are a favourite of mine and also very easy to make. My grandmother used to bake them when I was a little girl, so always when I eat these I think of her. They are perfect to have at hand in the freezer. I made mine with raspberry jam, but of course you can use any jam you like.

Raspberry Thumbprint Cookies, makes about 20

4 1/2dl flour
1dl sugar
1tsp baking-powder
2tsp vanilla sugar
200g butter
raspberry jam

Place all dry ingredients in a bowl, add the diced butter and work quickly to a smooth dough. Do not overwork it. It's easiest to use a food processor or a stand mixer but you can use your hands too.

Preheat the oven to 200 degrees C.

Divide the dough into 20 pieces. Roll each piece into a small boll and place in paper cups. Use your thumb to press a deepening  in each cookie. Fill it with your favourite jam.

Bake your cookies for 10-12 minutes. Don't let the cookies colour too much.




  1. Cooooookieee!

  2. I usually don't consider myself a cookie girl since I am more of a fruit person than chocolate, but these sound perfect for me!

  3. If you are a fruit person then I think you'll like these, they are crunhc and fruity:-) Please let me know what you thought. You can also try the Raspberry Cookies, supereasy quick cookies:-)
