My mom's friend, Maryann Fellows (nee Olsson), won a new kitchen from Pillsbury for developing this recipe and entering it into their contest in 1954. It says Robert as the entrant, but I'm sure back then she entered as Mrs. Robert Fellows. She was a native of Sweden who came to America in the late 1940s. Her original recipe calls for raspberry jam, but any jelly or preserve will be delicious I'm sure. We just always make it the way Mrs. Fellows did. I bet if she had access to lingonberry jam at the time, she might have considered using that as it is such a traditional Swedish flavor. These are so fast to make and fly off of the plate every time I cook them. Thank you Mrs. Fellows! We will always remember you for your delicious cookies.

This is cookie tastes like a perfect Raspberry Thumbprint cookie but without the work! I agree with others- easy, elegant and delicious. Like others I also used almond extract. When making the indent keep in mind not to go to 'deep'. It will make the cookie fragile. When I make these for a dessert platter I often make Taste of Home's Raspberry Nut Pinwheel cookies because they use similar ingredients. Both recipes make an outstanding addition to any cookie platter!

Delicious cookies that only look hard to make. Easy and elegant. I used 1/2 tsp. each almond extract and vanilla instead of the tsp. of vanilla, as I love almond with raspberries.

I make this cookie often for all seasons, with all sorts of jam, peach, apricot, strawberry. It goes together quickly, tastes great, and everyone is impressed with how pretty they look. It's also easy because it's only two pans in the oven. No making and rollowing out lots of little cookies, thought it looks like I took so much time!
