Raspberry Almond Thumbprints!
BEST combination, ever!
Almond shortbread acts as a vehicle for sweet and tangy raspberry jam. Buttery, flaky, jamy…yes, jamy…All topped with an almond drizzle. In my opinion, the almond accents the raspberry in an amazing way that heightens the flavor of the raspberry. Oh-em-gee, I am not kidding when I say you need to make these now. I am drooling thinking about all of them sitting in my freezer until Christmas.
These are one of my sister’s favorite cookies that I’ve made. Last Christmas I made a massive batch of them and I swear she demolished 3/4 of it herself. Too bad she won’t be coming in from New York for Christmas this year 🙁 No cookies for Doober.
Along with the 3 Ingredient Peanut Butter Cookies, these are also a “no excuse” recipe to make. You have no excuse not to make them because they are inexpensive, easy, not time consuming, and most importantly SO delicious.
