Say hello to one of your new favorite Christmas cookies! Okay I hope they’ll become a favorite for you but I can say for me these are most definitely one of my new favorite holiday cookies! These Raspberry Almond Snowball Cookies are little clouds of cookie bliss and I love everything about them. They do require more work and time than your traditional snowball cookie – you’ll have to roll out twice as many cookie balls (since you need halves) then you have to make indentations in each of them, fill them with a little jam and then bring them together and seal them. So yes they are more of an intermediate cookie but trust me they are worth the effort!
Everyone was dying over how good these were! They have all the same flavors as another favorite Christmas cookie of mine, these Raspberry Almond Thumbprint Cookie, but here you get a surprise jam filling inside and they dough has little tiny bits of almond pieces, plus everyone will love that sweet powdered sugar coating. You don’t get a huge batch of cookies out of this, but rather about cooling rack full of little delicacies.
Keep in mind you want to fully seal the cookies once you add the jam and bring the two halves together so that delicious filling doesn’t just leak out. Then another thing to note is that these cookies are pretty fragile so handle them care when assembling them and once they’ve baked up. And I did think they are the very best the day they are baked, the jam lightly softens them the following days (which my mom actually liked) but if you like that extra tender, melt-in-your-mouth bite then serve them up the day you make them.
Surprise everyone with something more than just pie this Thanksgiving and serve these alongside all those pies, people will love it! I hope all of you have a wonderful holiday week, and have some time to breath :)!
