Jam-in Cookies

Jam Filled Sugar Cookies

Hallongrotta, also known as Thumbprint cookies, are traditional in Sweden. The name Hallongrotta means ‘Raspberry Cave” which just sounds so magic! Of course, given the name means Raspberry Cave, we can discern that traditionally these cookies were created using raspberry jam.

All lasting traditions grow and change over time and the classic Thumbprint cookie is often made with a plethora of different jams and jellies.

We enjoy offering thumbprint cookies during special occasions, the delicate taste, and texture. The brilliant colors that bring such fanciful thoughts. These are truly classics.

Thumbprint cookies make a great gift for most anyone. Keep in mind that these do not freeze well due to the addition of the jam and the moisture. Best bet is to gift them early on, or if you are bringing these to an office party, room temperature storage is most appropriate.

These are a great way to introduce young persons to the magic and safety of the kitchen. Also, a great way to teach about sharing.
