My husband loves anything raspberry. No matter whether it’s made with fresh or frozen berries or even jam. He’s the raspberry kid in our family. 

He comes by his love of it naturally. He grew up hanging around his family’s bakery in Philadelphia. Plus, his favorite aunt loves raspberry so I’m sure she often had treats when he would visit.

The cookies have a channel in the middle of them that holds the raspberry jam. How do you make the channel you ask?

With the handle of a wooden spoon. When the cookie logs come out of the oven, wait about 2 – 3 minutes and GENTLY press the round wooden handle into the center of the cookie log. Gently draw the handle down the middle to make the indentation being extremely careful not to poke a hole or tear the warm cookie.

Filling the cookies with raspberry jam.

Here’s a tip: before placing the raspberry jam in the cookie, stir it well so it’s easier to fill the cookie.

Raspberry ribbon cookies are delicious but delicate. Once filled, let cool completely before cutting. Remove the parchment to a cutting board and slice cookies.

While I think these are more of a cookie, my husband thought it could do double duty as a morning pastry. He’s probably right with the glaze. Store them covered for up to 3 days. Personally, I think they are better the next day and even the day after. No one will ever know they start with a mix.
