White Chocolate Raspberry Thumbprints Recipe

When I pass around the cookie tray, all eyes land on these fancy thumbprints. The white chocolate filling and dab of jewel-toned jam will satisfy the most discriminating sweet tooth.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 25 min. + chilling Bake: 10 min./batch + cooling YIELD:38 servings

Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 2 eggs, separated
  • 1-1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup baking cocoa
  • 1-1/4 cups finely chopped pecans or walnuts
  • FILLING:
  • 4 squares (1 ounce each) white baking chocolate, coarsely chopped
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1/4 cup seedless raspberry jam

Directions

  • 1. In a small mixing bowl, cream butter and brown sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in egg yolks. Combine flour and cocoa; gradually add to creamed mixture and mix well. Cover and refrigerate for 1-2 hours or until easy to handle.
  • 2. In a shallow bowl, whisk egg whites until foamy. Place nuts in another shallow bowl. Shape dough into 1-in. balls. Dip in egg whites, then roll in nuts.
  • 3. Using a wooden spoon handle, make an indentation in center of each cookie. Place 1 in. apart on greased baking sheets. Bake at 350° for 8-10 minutes. Remove to wire racks to cool.
  • 4. In a small microwave-safe bowl, melt white chocolate and butter at 70% power; stir until smooth. Spoon about 1/2 teaspoon into each cookie. Top each with about 1/4 teaspoon jam. Store in an airtight container. Yield: about 3 dozen.

"I made these cookies a few years back as part of a homemade cookie assortment I was giving to friends and co-workers as Christmas gifts. They were my favorite! Not too sweet, and very fancy looking. I'm starting to make my cookie list this year, and these will definitely be at the top of the list!"

"These are pretty and delicious. I would definitely make them again, as they were one of my favorite cookies that I made this year. My only complaint was they were too sticky to store easily, even in the freezer."

"I made these last year for Christmas, I made over a dozen different types of cookies, and I loved these the best. They are making my list for this year! (which is a MUCH shorter list than last year)"

"I'm in love with these cookies. Made them for Christmas cookie platters. Every one really enjoyed and kept asking what was in them. Made then exactly as written. I would certainly double the recipe next year not only so there are more but so they are bigger. When making the ball sizes as instructed there wasn't enough room to place the instructed amount of fillings inside. Although it was the first go at it! Will make again.. and again."
