Ahh raspberry almond thumbprint cookies. I have loved this cookie since I lived with my parents and baked cookies for Christmas (clearly I thing I’ve been doing for a long time LOL!) The recipe I used to use came from a “Woman’s World” magazine that my mom religiously bought and my sister and I loved to read through for all the hilarious weight loss tips they always plastered on the front cover.
The recipe was literally a tiny sliver on one of the pages and I think it was titled “Grandma’s Thumbprint Cookies” or something like that. They looked so delicious that they quickly became a holiday staple over the years with that one page dog eared so we wouldn’t forget what issue it came from.
Since going vegan, I’ve been determined to find a recipe that mimics the buttery goodness of the one I grew up with and I have to say that I’m pretty sure I’ve nailed it! I haven’t been able to find that page from many years ago, but I did find a Martha Stewart recipe that I adapted to a vegan version. I hope you all enjoy it as much as I do.
