You know Valentine's Day is right around the corner when you see a billion strawberry dessert recipes pop up. I was planning on making a few strawberry flavored desserts this weekend myself, maybe a pie or cupcakes, but then I decided I wanted cookies instead. I just wasn't feeling strawberry flavored cookies, so I decided to head over to Golden Blossom Honey to see if they had anything that included red fruit in a cookie that could pass off as a Valentine's treat. I actually found this Chocolate Raspberry Thumbprint Cookie recipe in their Christmas recipe collection, but hey. Raspberries are red, chocolate is the universal flavor of Valentine's Day, so why not? Plus, my friend Dezzy recently asked why I never post raspberry desserts, so dahlink Dezzy, this one's for you ;)
Honestly, I don't bake with raspberries often because they aren't at the top of my favorite fruit list. Something about the texture of the berry isn't my cuppa tea, but this recipe calls for raspberry jam which is definitely something that I can get behind. I think any kind of fruit makes for a wonderful jam, raspberry included.
Ingredients1 1/2 cups flour
1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup butter, room temperature
1/4 cup GOLDEN BLOSSOM HONEY
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 tablespoons sugar, to roll cookies in
1/4 cup seedless raspberry jam

Get a little fancy and top the cookies with raspberries. Plus, you could always consider them healthy if there's real fruit on top, right? If you want to get extra fancy, I think drizzling white chocolate over the tops would make them pop even more!
