Raspberry Filled Butter Cookie Recipe

If you follow my blog at all, you know how much I love the great people over at Lucky Leaf .  They are always sending me pie filling and other goodies along with fabulous recipes!!

The other day I received a can of Raspberry Pie filling from them!……I had no idea there was Raspberry Premium Pie Filling! and I’m a HUGE fan of raspberry!!!  I bet you could even use it with the Raspberry Filled Cupcakes I made a few months ago.

With all the holiday baking I didn’t think I had time to squeeze in another recipe to my already long to do list!  But after a quick look, I realized how EASY these cookies were and best of all, I was already making my butter cookies to decorate, so I would have no problem pumping out a few of these delicious treats!

Leave Santa some cookies he will remember with these raspberry filled star butter cookies.

Raspberry Filled Butter Cookie Recipe


  • 1 Prepared raw butter or sugar cookie dough of your choice.
  • 1 (21 oz) can Lucky Leaf Premium Raspberry Pie Filling
  • Glaze or Royal Icing


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Mix cookie dough. *I used my favorite Butter Cookie Recipe, or you could use Bridget’s Sugar Cookie or even buy Pillsbury refrigerated cookie dough!
  3. Roll out cookie dough to about 1/4? thickness *you may want to see my video on University of Cookie on how I roll out cookie dough
  4. Use a star cookie cutter (or cutter of your choice) to cut out an even amount of cookies and place 1/2 of them on baking sheet
  5. Place a dollop of pie filling in the center of each cookie
  6. Place another star cookie on top.
  7. Gently seal cookie with a fork to crimp edges together.
  8. Bake for 12-14 minutes or until golden brown.
  9. Remove from oven and let cool completely.
  10. Drizzle with Glaze Icing
