These cookies are PERFECT just as the recipe is! They are always a hit with everyone that tries them. I love that you can really taste the almond flavor - very different than other fruit cookies I make which typically call for vanilla extract. The only thing I do is I dust them with a little powdered sugar right before serving. Not that they're not sweet enough already - I just think they make a prettier presentation on the cookie tray.
I was thinking of making these but putting Nutella inside instead of creamcheese/raspberry . Not sure Any ideas
Wow! Just wow! Such amazing cookies. I used apricot preserves instead of raspberry because I forgot to check for it before I went to town. Also I must have been a little more generous with the filling. I had a few cookies leftover. That's ok because they are incredible alone.
The almond and raspberry combination is terrific. At Christmas, I typically make 10-12 different types of cookies and will definitely add these to my list next year.
