EXPERT TIPS

Expert Tips

Laura Murphy from Columbus, MS created this recipe for a Celebrate the Season Holiday Cookie Contest.

"This recipe is an updated version of a thumbprint cookie recipe that has played a big role in initiating the holiday season for my family for as long as I can remember. We are always sad to see them go with the Christmas season, though they are well worth the wait each year." Laura Murphy

A food processor works great for finely chopping the pistachio nuts.

You can substitute strawberry jam or your favorite flavor for the raspberry.
