Raspberry Thumbprint Cookies You NEED To Try Yourself

Raspberry Thumbprints

This fabulous raspberry shortbread cookie recipe will make your mouth water. With a bold almond flavor, thanks to both the cookie and the glaze, this culinary treat is a fairly simple dish that will have you coming back for more after your first bite.

Now, it’s been over two years since I first posted this recipe. And in that time, we have greatly improved- our equipment, skillsets, experience, and our standards. So I recently updated the blog post; finally bringing this post up to our new quality standard. Which, frankly, was long overdue. The original pictures definitely look like they were taken by beginners- which, to be fair, they were. Two years ago, I had no clue what I was doing… and it showed.

So I hope you enjoy the updated version of the same scrumptious raspberry thumbprint recipe.
