Just a few months ago I was going on and on about how much I love soup season … and I realized I really, really love cookie season!

You have no idea how many dozens of cookies are living in my kitchen right now. It is ridiculous. And awesome. Cookie lovers unite!

But seriously, I have been baking a lot of cookies these past few days. I haven’t been eating that many – well, trying not to eat too many of them is a more truthful statement. I have a container of hummus and some carrots next to me as I type in an attempt to ignore all of the cookies.

I think I may be addicted to the sweet aromas coming out of the oven.

There are way worse things to be addicted to so I’m not going to do anything to fix it. Because, in fact, a good cookie is like a good friend – you can count on both to make you feel better. 😉

Raspberry Chocolate Shortbread Thumbprint Cookies

These raspberry chocolate shortbread thumbprint cookies are my new favorite cookie. They are super easy to make and super hard to resist – not a good combination for a cookie smell addict.

The subtle chocolate flavor comes from a double dose of Rodelle – one part Rodelle Organics Chocolate Extract and one part Rodelle Gourmet Baking Cocoa.

As part of my brand ambassadorship with Rodelle, I am participating in their 21 Days of CookiesSounds pretty amazing, right? Be sure to check all of the other bloggers cookies because you can never have too many cookies.
