This old-fashioned thumbprint cookies recipe is inspired by my grandma's thumbprint cookies with nuts. The raspberry thumbprint cookies are buttery, rich, crumbly, and delicately sweet, with the sweetness coming from the jam (raspberry, or you can make half with apricot preserves for apricot thumbprint cookies). If you prefer your cookies sweeter, sift confectioners’ sugar over the finished classic thumbprint cookies. Click or visit FabEveryday.com for the Classic Thumbprint Cookies recipe.
