Innkeeper Comments: "My favorite holiday cookie is the Raspberry Thumbprint Cookie. These are fastgoers for the holidays and I also use this same recipe for Valentine's Day. Chocolate and raspberry sure go together."

Prep Time: 20 minutes

Cook Time: 12 minutes

Total Time: 32 minutes


  • 1/2 cup of butter or margarine, softened
  • 1/4 cup firmly packed brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour, sifted
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • 1/3 cup miniature semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • Raspberry preserves


Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.

In a medium mixing bowl, cream butter, sugars, salt and vanilla until light and fluffy. Blend in flour and milk. Stir in chocolate chips.

Shape dough into 1 inch balls and place on ungreased baking sheets. Make a small indentation with thumb in the top of each ball. Use a teaspoon to place a small amount of raspberry preserves in each indentation.

Bake 10 to 12 minutes. Remove from sheets and cool on wire racks.

Yields about 3 dozen cookies.

Two thumbs up!!!!, Member Sweetcin11

I was a bit leary about this as I'm not a big raspberry preserve fan...however, I made it & they came out GREAT! I had to hide them from my husband. Only negative is I wish I doubled the recipe. It yielded about 40 cookies. What a delicious taste..the chocolate chips make it!
