Raspberry Chocolate Thumbprints 

Life Around the Table

Raspberry Chocolate Thumbprint Cookies are the ultimate balance of a chewy cookie with crispy edges and a generous amount of rich raspberry ganache in the centre. There's no chill time required so this is the perfect recipe for spontaneous bakers!

Simple Ingredients

– all-purpose flour – cocoa powder – fine sea salt – unsalted butter  – coconut sugar  (or brown sugar) – egg – vanilla extract – heavy cream – raspberry jam seedless – baker’s chocolate

Step 1: In a medium sized bowl, mix flour together with cocoa powder and salt until well combined.

Step 2: In a separate medium sized bowl, cream together butter, sugar, one egg and vanilla extract.

Step 3: – Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, mixing until just combined. The dough may seem firm and slightly dry, which is normal and ensures the cookies hold their shape during baking.

Step 4: Roll the dough into small balls, about 2 teaspoons each, and place them on the prepared cookie sheets and bake in a 350 degree oven for 7-8 minutes. 

Step 5: While the last tray of cookies is in the oven, gently warm the cream and jam together, then add the chopped chocolate and stir until fully melted.

Step 6: Once the cookies have cooled slightly, add a dollop of the chocolate raspberry ganache to the centre indentation made in the thumbprint cookies and enjoy!
