Raspberry Thumbprint Cookies

We love cookies around our house, and while you can’t go wrong with a sugar cookie or chocolate chip cookie, it’s fun to switch things up a bit and get fancy. This classic thumbprint cookie is made up of rich, buttery shortbread with a dollop of sweet and tangy raspberry jam, topped with a powdered sugar glaze. What’s not to love about this treat? These are the absolute perfect cookies to have with a warm cup of tea, or to dip in hot chocolate! Plus, they’re small so you’ll probably need to have 3 or 4.

While these look impressive, they’re not at all difficult to make. You just roll the dough into balls after it chills and press your finger into each one to make a little pocket for the jam. After they bake, you drizzle them with a simple powdered sugar glaze for shine and an extra touch of sweetness. They’re pretty as a picture and oh so good!
