Soooo, you know how I complained the other day about this being a tough week?! WELL.
…imagine smoke coming out of my nostrils…
The week kinda got worse.

Yesterday, Diethood decided to take a break and go offline for HOURS!
OH, the pain!!
I was all like, ‘come on Diethood, get to work! We got this, boo!’ And she was all like, ‘here’s a 404 Error for you AND a 503 Error for the rest! Booyah!’

Ugh. She’s finally back up and running. If you see/have any issues, please, please let me know!

BUT, it’s FRIDAY! YAY for us! Me, especially! 😉

How about some cookies? There’s no time like…NOW! ‘Tis the Season!

These particular thumbprint cookies are the kind that disappear so quickly that even after the third batch, you couldn’t get to them fast enough to take a picture.
For that reason, I baked THIS batch at 11 pm. Take that, cookie thieves!

The idea for the cookies came from my dad, of all people. Years ago he got into raw-sugar and dreamed up a raw-sugar-cookie for ME to make. Minus the butter and with margarine.
Yah… he likes the marg better. So weird.

Anywho.

There’s a really great reason why these disappear so fast. They are delightful, absolutely beautiful and they literally melt in your mouth.
There’s also a bite of that crunchy sugar topping paired with the sweetness of your favorite jam.
If your instincts tell you to add a bit of bourbon to the dough, take it from me and just do a shot.

These beautiful and festive Thumbprint Cookies are made with just 3 ingredients: raw-sugar, butter, and flour. And, if you're craving even more sweetness in these simple sugar cookies, feel free to add some jelly on top, too!
Servings : 24 cookies
Prep Time 30 mins
Cook Time 45 mins
Total Time 1 hr 15 mins

Ingredients
  

  • 20 tablespoons butter (about 2 ½ sticks), softened
  • 1/3 cup raw sugar , plus more for rolling
  • 2 ½ cups all-purpose flour
  • raspberry and orange jelly

Instructions
 

  • Combine butter and sugar in your mixer's bowl.
  • With the paddle attachment on, beat the mixture until creamy; about 10 to 15 seconds.

  • Preheat oven to 275.
  • Remove dough from fridge.
  • Pinch off dough and roll into 1-inch balls. I use a kitchen scale and pinch off 1/2-ounce for each cookie.
  • Roll each ball in raw sugar.
  • Place cookies on an ungreased baking sheet, 2-inches apart.
  • Using a drinking glass, slightly flatten each cookie-ball.
  • With your thumb, make an indentation in the center of the cookies.
  • Bake for 42 to 45 minutes, or until golden in color.
  • Remove from oven and let stand 1 minute.
  • Transfer to cooling racks; let cool.
  • Drop 1/4 teaspoon of jam into each indentation.
  • Serve.

    UGH – I had the VERY SAME ERROR! I damn near hyperventilated, but now our sites are back and it’s all good. Now, onto these cookies! Gosh, so pretty and I can imagine the crunch of the raw sugar. And please girl, my instincts always say… Do the shot!
