More About This Recipe

  • We know them as raspberry thumbprint cookies, but in their native Sweden they’re “hallongrotta,” which translates to “raspberry cave.” And we’re big fans of this particular version, which starts by mixing our legendary sugar cookie dough with cream cheese, flour and lemon zest. This makes for a subtly lemon-flavored cookie that’s exceptionally rich and moist, and the perfect vehicle for a sweet-tart “raspberry cave” in the middle. So even if you’re an expert when it comes to how to make cookies, we bet you’ve never had thumbprints quite like this.
