  1. Made these yesterday. Forced me to make cashew butter for the first time. Two thumbs up. Will make these again! A plus-they are so rich I won't gobble the whole batch up. Taste good frozen!
  2. Why are these cookies called Raspberry Almond Thumbprint Cookies? You have no Raspberries nor almonds in the recipe!!!!!!!!
  3. I finally made these and I added poppyseeds too because I have a favorite unhealthy thumbprint cookie that includes them. I used raspberry chia jam and they are so good!!! Thank you so much for this healthy version of my old favorite!
