raspberry hazelnut thumbprint cookies

March 1, 2012 § 2 Comments

I made these last December and they were the best thumbprint cookies I ever had (if I do say so, myself!). 🙂  I have to credit Dorie Greenspan’s recipe, though, from her Baking book—-she really has a great way of making her recipes foolproof.  I rarely go wrong whenever I use one of her recipes.  She really is quite brilliant because her detailed recipes have a way of making it so simple to follow.

These were made with a 1:1 ratio of finely ground hazelnuts to flour—yes—LOTS of hazelnuts!  I had some raspberry jam on hand that I’ve been meaning to use and I slathered a HUGE dallop of rasberry jam on each cookie—it was probably a tad too much, but I love the combination of hazelnuts and raspberries.  The recipe also called for almond and vanilla extracts, which I think, gave it so much more depth of flavor than just vanilla extract alone, which most recipes I’ve read call for only vanilla extract.

If you like thumbprint cookies, then you MUST try this recipe—you really can’t go wrong with it.  I won’t ever buy another grocery-store (even if its from Whole Foods) thumbprint cookie again!

    How many of these did you make and how long did it take you?

    • I made maybe more than 3 dozen, I think—whatever the recipe called for—I didn’t double it or anything. I usually end up with more cookies than it says because I like smaller cookies. It took me a whole evening after work and dinner—I probably went to bed really late. It takes me longer because I only use 2 cookie sheets and I have to wait until they are cold again before I make another round.
