White Chocolate Raspberry Thumbprint Cookies

Rating: 4.5 stars 27
These are my favorite. You can use any flavor jam you want. The servings will depend on the size of your cookies. If you use the Wilton® bags, you can skip a step and just melt the chocolate in the bag.

Cream Tea Cakes

Rating: 4.5 stars 20
'Cream cakes' are not a specific item, but a term that refers to a variety of goodies served at tea. Scones, cakes, buns, and biscuits may be spread with cream and/or jam. Here's a Lake District recipe for 'Upland's Biscuits'. When cool, sandwich in pairs with raspberry jam. A dollop of clotted cream on top, a pot of strong tea, aahhh!

Shulie Krinkles

Rating: 4.5 stars 11
My Aunt Julie and I were making Christmas cookies and we tried to make cake-mix cookies with brownie mix. This is the result which we named by combining our names. Our families ate them all before Christmas! They should be soft, chewy and crinkly.
