Oh, I love to sit in my relaxing corner, on my little piece of  grass, pillows, cozy lights… and a plate of delicious cookies!
This is winter about, isn’t it?!;)

When you have an urgent craving for something sweet, the best solution is to open Pinterest and find a delicious and easy recipe!

That way I found this Swedish Raspberry Kiss Cookies recipe and I had no doubts about baking it immediately!

 

RECIPE:

Yield: 1 1/2 – 2 dozen cookies depending on the size of ball you make.

Ingredients:

7 ounces of real butter softened ( 7 ounces is the same as 14 tablespoons)

1/2 cup sugar

1/3 cup cornstarch (you can add a little more if you feel like the dough is too sticky)

1 1/2 cups flour

1/2 teaspoon baking powder

Instructions:

Mix it into a soft dough. Refrigerate until chilled. Roll into small balls and press your thumb to make indents. Spoon 1/2 teaspoon of jam into the indent.

Bake at 375 degrees Fahrenheit for 10-15 minutes (depending on your oven) Be careful not to let them brown.

 

This recipe is originally by Stacy, the author of NOT JUST A HOUSEWIFE. Make sure you visit her super cool blog!

My Notes:

As always I couldn’t resist changing  a few things to make it healthier, so to eat it without guilt.
If you fancy to bake a healthier/diet version, here is some help:

I used xylitol instead of sugar.
Instead of normal flour, I added 1 cup oatmeal and 1/2 cup grated coconut.
Cornstarch was substituted by organic manioc starch.
And finally because of the texture of oatmeal and coconut, I was using a tiny bit less butter (about 5 ounches).

I guess they turned-out slightly different than the original ones, but they were super delicious and we destroyed it all in no time!
