Description

Thumbprint Cookies are a classic Christmas Cookie around the holidays. These CHOCOLATE RASPBERRY THUMBPRINT COOKIES have a subtle chocolate flavor with a burst of raspberry that you’ll fall in love with!


Scale

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup butter unsalted butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 cup white whole wheat flour
  • 1/4 cup dutch processed cocoa powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 egg
  • 1/3 cup raspberry jam with preserves

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 375.
  2. In a stand mixer add butter and sugar. Beat until creamy.
  3. Add in the cocoa powder, baking soda, and salt. Beat until all the ingredients are combined. Scrap the sides to mix everything if you need to.
  4. Next add in the egg and vanilla extract. Beat until combined. Then add in the flour and beat until combined.
  5. The dough should be a good ball rolling consistency, if not, put the dough in the refrigerator for a bit to harden up.
  6. Roll dough into 1″ balls and place on parchment lined baking sheets (or you could use silicon mats, which is what I prefer) about 2″ apart.
  7. Using your thumb, press each ball in the middle making a slight imprint.
  8. Add 1/2-1 teaspoon of raspberry jam to each chocolate ball imprint.
  9. Bake for 8 minutes.
  10. Remove cookies from the oven and let cool on a wire rack. Serve!
