Every holiday season I’m always on the lookout for a great new cookie to add to my recipe box. Last week, more than 500 cookie recipes were posted in the Great Food Blogger Cookie Swap including my recipe for Candy Cane Crinkle Blossoms.
While browsing through all the fantastic cookies, I came across these beautiful raspberry almond thumbprint cookies by Saving Room for Dessert. Tricia’s recipe is so simple that I couldn’t resist trying them myself!
In my cabinet I have this beautiful jar of handmade Blackberry jam made by a local German couple. I have tried 5-6 different flavors of their jams and they are THE BEST I’ve ever tasted. I am definitely spoiled being able to have access to such quality, homemade foods here in Germany! So, I decided to use this jam for these cookies and flavor the dough with lemon instead of almond. Lemon and blackberry make an amazing combination, so I’m sure these cookies will be a hit!
PS…. If I were to make these again, I’d make them more like thumbprint cookies and make the hole for the jam bigger… more jam the merrier!
