White Chocolate Raspberry Thumbprint Cookies

White Chocolate Raspberry Thumbprint Cookies


"These are my favorite. You can use any flavor jam you want. The servings will depend on the size of your cookies. If you use the Wilton® bags, you can skip a step and just melt the chocolate in the bag."

  1. Beat butter and shortening together in a bowl with an electric mixer until smooth; add white sugar, confectioners' sugar, baking soda, cream of tartar, and salt. Beat until just combined. Stir in egg and vanilla extract. Gradually mix in flour until just combined. Cover and refrigerate dough for 3 hours.
  2. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
  3. Roll the dough into 3/4-inch balls and arrange on an ungreased baking sheet. Press your thumb or end of wooden spoon into the center of each dough ball making an indentation. Spoon 1/4 teaspoon jam into each thumbprint.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until edges of cookies become lightly browned, 8 to 10 minutes. Cool on a wire rack for 5 minutes.
  5. Place white chocolate chips in a microwave-safe bowl; cook in microwave in 10-second intervals, stirring after each interval, until chips are melted. Spoon melted white chocolate into a disposable decorating or plastic bag. Snip off one small corner of bag; drizzle white chocolate over cookies. Sprinkle with red sugar.

These are the absolute best cookies I have ever had! I made a double batch to take to work and they were gone in minutes!

Absolutely delicious! Everyone loved these and they make a wonderful presentation.

My family liked these quite a bit but I think next time I will skip the white chocolate and sugar garnish as they're really great just by themselves.

Lovely light cookies! Made with lemonade for a gathering on my porch. Decided to skip the white chocolate and used a powered sugar dusting. May also try a dark chocolate drizzle next time. ...

These were easy to make. You do have to keep the dough cold to work with it. Maybe needed a little more vanilla. But it is a very good, nice looking little cookie. I will be making these for the...

These are really good! I used preserve instead of jam and I think they came out well. I didn't do the drizzle either but people loved them! Thank you for a great recipe!

Delicious and just as good with Strawberry Preserves too

Love these. Super easy to follow and make. I'll be making them for Christmas. I didn't have the colored sugar sprinkles but I think it's perfect with the white chocolate drizzle. Huge hit with ...
