Raspberry Hazelnut Thumbprint Cookies

My mom has been making these raspberry hazelnut thumbprint cookies for years, and they are a family favourite. The dough is moist and the jam gives them a kick of flavour. Give them a try and I know you will love them.

You can use other types of jam if you don’t like raspberry. They freeze well and are always a big hit. I have made them without the nuts on the outside, but prefer them to be rolled in the nuts as it adds some great texture and taste.

You might also like Chocolate Chip Shortbread Cookies, Sugar Cookie Sticks, Gluten Free Vegan Thumbprint Cookies or Peppermint Oreo Cookies.
