I have been waiting to share this awesome Raspberry Pillow Cookies recipe with you for a few days now, lol. I almost had it posted the whole time, but I kept getting sidetracked. Better late than never, I always say. Sadly, I don’t know what happened to me. I used to be early everywhere I went—at least 10 minutes. I showed up early and was ready for business. I am lucky if I am 10 minutes late!BLAH, I’m trying hard to go back to being early, but it’s just so hard. It means I would have to start getting ready 10 minutes earlier than I already am.

Anyway, don’t these pillow cookies look pretty darn delicious? Remember, if you don’t like raspberries, don’t count them out because you can switch it out for something you do enjoy!! Let’s get back on track and talk cookies! Check out this raspberry pillow cookie recipe below.

  • Remove from the fridge and allow the dough to soften, which usually takes about 15 minutes.
  • Add flour to your rolling pin and cutting board or counter (wherever you are rolling the dough out) and roll out the cookie dough.
  • Using a medium round cookie butter, cut out the cookies and line half of them on your prepared cookie sheet. and leave the other cut cookies behind to top the cookies already on the cookie sheet.
  • Add 2 teaspoons of preserves in the center of each of the cookies, dip your finger into a small bowl of water and run it around the edge of the cookie, and place the top of the cookie on the bottom half with the preserves in the center and lightly press the dough down around the sides to seal the top and bottom together.

I like to leave mine a little thick, but really just enough so dough doesn’t tear and holds the raspberry filling inside
