You can ask my kids to confirm; I am not a good baker, but I think I could even handle these!

Great looking recipe! My wife and I have been using molasses in place of sugar in a number of sweet recipes, and it adds a great flavor!

My mom used to make thumbprint cookies with the vanilla cookie and the jelly, but your version looks even better. What a yummy twist to add chocolate to the cookie base. I can’t wait to try it out. chocolate and raspberry is one of my favorite combinations.
