Boysenberry Thumbprint Cookies

This super special sweet treat is made with boysenberries, a unique berry that tastes like a cross between a raspberry and a blackberry. Topped with a light sprinkle of powdered sugar, these cookies are the perfect afternoon pick-me-up!


2 sticks of unsalted butter, softened to room temperature

2/3 cup of white sugar 

2 teaspoons of vanilla extract

2 cups of all-purpose flour 

Pinch of salt

1/2 cup of boysenberry preserves

Powdered sugar


1. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F. Line a cookie tray with parchment paper. 

2. Beat the sugar and butter on high, using a hand mixer, until creamy. Add the vanilla and salt and mix until combined. 

3. Turn the mixer down to low and add in the flour. Mix until just combined. Form the dough into a ball, cover in plastic wrap, and refrigerate for 1 hour. 

4. Break off small pieces of dough and roll into balls about 1.5" wide. Place each ball onto the cookie tray about 2" apart and press a thumbprint into the center. 

5. Fill each thumbprint with some of the boysenberry preserves.

6. Place the cookie tray into the oven and bake for approximately 20 minutes, or until the edges start browning. 

7. Transfer the cookies to a wire rack. Once they have cooled, sift some powdered sugar over the cookies.
