Raspberry thumbprint cookies have to be one of the most lovely classic cookies you can make. This is just my classic shortbread cookie recipe, but instead of just vanilla extract I use a bit of almond extract as well. The dough gets formed into balls, pressed with your thumb to make an indent and then filled with raspberry jam before being baked in the oven. The result is perfect buttery shortbread with a delicious sweet fruit burst. These were a favourite cookie offering amongst family and friends over the winter holiday. It's kind of funny because it is such a ubiquitous cookie, yet they never cease to be impressive.
Yield : 25 cookies (just depends how big you make them)
