Raspberry Thumbprint Cookies, THM S, Keto, Sugar-free, Gluten-free

Christmas is just around the corner and with it comes holiday baking! Baking cookies had always been a part of our family’s Christmas. When I was a young girl, my mother and some of her sisters would get together to bake cookies. Those were exciting times; playing with cousins and tasting all kinds of cookies.

These Raspberry Thumbprint Cookies are a makeover from an old time favorite. I make my own sugar-free Raspberry Jam to use in these cookies. Adding just a fine drizzle of chocolate takes these cookies up a notch. Don’t they looks so pretty!

You may wonder why I use some almond flour and some Baking Blend. Almond flour is such a calorie dense food. I have found that I can use part almond flour and THM Baking Blend and still have a superior baked items. The mix of these two is a lighter calories load for people like me who have to still eat in moderation!

Here is another one of my favorite cookies…..Walnut Frosties! This recipe is very similar to the one above but has a special topping of walnuts and sour cream.

And it would not be a holiday Cookie Tray without some candy. I love these Raspberry Truffles …. they just melt in your mouth. And if you are like me some days, you just eat the truffles without dipping them in chocolate!
