Almond flour raspberry thumbprint cookies

With jewel-jam centers and a tender almond flour shortbread cookie, these bright thumbprint cookies are sure to be a hit.  The jam can be made with any berry, but we like raspberry for its bright red color and sweet flavor.  You can whip up a batch of raw honey-sweetened raspberry chia jam in just 5 minutes with this recipe here.

The almond flour based shortbread cookies are fast to make, with just a few simple ingredients that are available in most health food stores.  They’re sure to disappear in a flash, but if you happen to have leftovers, keep covered in the refrigerator for up to 1 week.

  3. Melt coconut oil in a large mixing bowl, and allow to cool until no longer hot.
