Raspberry Almond Thumbprint Cookies

If you make anything this weekend, you must make these Raspberry Almond Thumbprint Cookies.  If you have been following my blog for awhile, you know I love adding almond extract to anything I can.  I can seriously smell it all day.  In fact, my favorite lotion has the same scent.  Heavenly!  On Pinterest the other day, I came across a recipe for raspberry almond thumbprints.  I didn’t actually click on the pin, but I did make a mental note to create a recipe for Raspberry Almond Thumbprint Cookies.  They came out delicious!  If you like all things almond flavored, you make also like my flourless almond joy blondies or my almond joy protein bars.

If you have someone with a nut allergy in your house, you can use sunflower seed butter in this recipe as well.  Or if you prefer almond butter or peanut butter.  I think the peanut butter would give it a pbj&j feel.

Yummy!  I chose cashew butter because it is buttery in texture and mild in flavor.   I made my own cashew butter, but grinding up some cashews in the food processor for about 10 minutes.   You can also use store bought cashew butter if you like.

If you choose to make your own cashew butter, but the cashews in “pieces” vs whole cashews.  The pieces are often much cheaper. 🙂
