Share a Spoon (of yummy cookies for Santa)

Time for Share a Spoon with Think Tank Momma!

It's all about Santa and his cookies.  I myself find that during this time of year I cheat in places that I can get away with it!  That means for my little recipe I am sharing I cheated!
Thanks to my friend Betty, she gives me a wonderful sugar cookie mix from a pouch and I give my family a delicious and pretty cookie!

Raspberry Thumbprint Cookies
1 pouch Betty Crocker sugar cookie mix (butter and egg for the mix)
3 tablespoon all-purpose flour
1/3 c. seedless raspberry jam
1 c. white vanilla baking chips
Red and green colored sugar

Make cookie dough according to package for drop cookies, except stir in flour.  Roll dough into 3/4 inch balls, using your thumb, make and indentation in the middle of ball with your thumb.  Spoon 1/4 teaspoon on jam into the indentation.  Bake at 350 for 8-10 minute.  Melt chips and drizzle over baked cookies, you can also sprinkle cookies with color sugar if you want to make them look more festive!


  1. You know what? Taking shortcuts is fine. These sound sooooo pretty! I love jam thumbprints. They are beautiful.

    These sound like lots of fun with kids. My youngest and I might make these while we bake this weekend so that he can "help".

    Thanks for Sharing!

  2. Great recipe! I love shortcuts in cooking and baking. I just signed up to follow your wonderful blog!

  3. My kids would love to make these!

  4. I love the idea of using the package! WE made sugar cookies a few weeks ago and it was exhausting.Anyway, I came back to join up and follow you.

  5. THese sound so cute! I'm in the baking mood-finally! I plan on going out this weekend and getting some ingredients to get things going int he kitchen. :) Post pics after you make these.

  6. I LOVE raspberry! These sound really really good!

  7. Oooh, I've never tried drizzling anything over my thumbprint cookies! Yum!

  8. You had me at raspberry, like really, really had me.

    The fact you used a shortcut like a cookie mix didn't hurt either. ;)
