Golden Raspberry Thumbprint Cookies
Tonight my house was at the end of a fun little tour that 6 friends and I do every year to see each others decorations. We also talk, laugh and eat just a little along the way. Since my house was last on the tour, I decided I would start my cookie baking. I got this recipe off the back of a C&H Brown Sugar box many years ago. Since it is a favorite of my friends, I thought I would share it here.
1/2 cup butter 1 cup all-purpose flour
1/3 cup packed brown sugar 1/4tsp. salt
1 egg separated 3/4 cup finely chopped walnuts
1/2 tsp. vanilla Seedless Raspberry Jam
Cream together butter, sugar, egg yolk and vanilla. Stir in flour and salt. Roll into 1-inch balls. Dip into slightly beaten egg white and roll in nuts. Place on ungreased baking sheet.
Bake n 375 degree oven for 5 miutes. Remove from oven. Quickly indent each cookie center with thumb. Return to oven and bake 8 minutes longer. Cool on rack.
Fill thumbprints with 1/2 tsp. jam.
Then I drizzle mine with a powdered sugar glaze.
This makes about 2 1/2 doz. They are so yummy, I always double the recipe.
