I love the entire Christmas season. Lights, trees, Christmas Carols and of course along with that comes plates of Christmas cookies. When I think of Christmas cookies, I always think of my Grandma Mary, she made the BEST Christmas cookies. There was always an assortment of almond crescents, shortbread, sugar cookies, rum balls, and of course thumbprint cookies!
I always went for the thumbprints or the shortbread cookies!
Years later, my mom would make the thumbprint cookies (we always called them Thimble Cookies) and eventually passed our family recipe onto me.
Our thumbprints were always rolled in nuts, which I loved. I now have a daughter with a nut allergy so of course I avoid nuts but still love to include a version of thumbprint cookies on our plates.
These Raspberry Thumbprint Cookies start with a soft lemon kissed sugar cookie base filled with raspberry preserves and drizzled with a fresh lemon glaze.
Not only are they delicious, they’re absolutely gorgeous and super easy to make! One of the best things about these cookies is how fast they are to put together since they start with Pillsbury™ refrigerated sugar cookies. Lemon zest is added for a fresh lemony flavor while raspberry jam adds a fruity sweetness. I topped them with a simple lemony glaze.
Speaking of Christmas cookie plates, Pillsbury is counting down to Christmas in the most delicious way possible—with freshly baked cookies!
