I started this blog so my daughters could find all of our family favourite recipes in one place. It has actually grown into more than just the family favourites but also other recipes we've tried out in our kitchen. I don't like to fill up the post with alot of chatter. Sometimes there's a little story to tell, but usually I like to get right to the point. So this is for them, but hope you find some recipes that you like as well. I'll be sharing a lot of recipes, and along the way you'll find some crafty things and maybe some helpful hints too! Welcome!

Raspberry Thumbprint Shortbread Cookies

Buttery melt-in-your-mouth shortbread cookies should always be part of your holiday baking game plan!

1 cup icing sugar
1 cup cornstarch
2 cups flour
2 cups butter
seedless raspberry jam
coconut (optional)

Sift the icing sugar, cornstarch and flour together then use a pastry blender to incorporate the butter, using your hands at the end to form into a dough.
Roll the dough into small balls, about 1 - 1.5", and place on parchment lined baking sheets. Using your thumb or a round measuring spoon like I did here, press divots into the cookie balls. Fill the divots with a small amount of jam. This baby feeding spoon was just the right size for the job!

Sprinkle some coconut on top of the jam if desired and bake at 300°F for 16 minutes.

Cool completely before storing in tins.

Makes 64 cookies
