Thumbprint Cookies with Homemade Raspberry Jam

Christmas season really is the best time for cookie making. There are so many varieties to try! I decided to make these thumbprint cookies using my homemade raspberry jam and they are amazing!

Now if you have been following me from the beginning you know I have a lovely hate relationship with cookies. I love them because they are delicious little temptation bites, but im not great at making them look perfect.

These thumbprint cookies, however are to die for! And they came out pretty good!

Making Thumbprint cookies

This was my first go round with thumbprint cookies.

They are essentially sugar cookies made into small balls and pressed in the middle with your thumb or a small object to create a crater. Then they are filled with chocolate, caramel lemon curd or any fruit jam.

I found a recipe from walking on sunshine that was really easy to make and what made it even better was my homemade raspberry jam!

Making Homemade Raspberry Jam

Sure you can just buy it but we like to make things in this household. Plus, having an 18 month old means I’m a pro at making pureed fruits lol.

This jam is quick and easy and only needs 3 ingredients. Raspberries, sugar and lemon juice (OK, 4 if you count the corn flour (starch) to thicken it).

Storing Your Jam

If you are like me you will have a few glass jars laying about. These are great to reuse, especially for Jam. Once the jam has thickened on the stove, let it rest for at least 15 minutes before pouring it into an airtight jar.

This jam will keep for months as sugar acts as a preservative.
