Raspberry Caves

This is my best recipe for Raspberry Caves, A.K.A Hallongrottor in Swedish. This is a classic Swedish cookie and they are just so delicious! They have very few ingredients and you can eat them warm, fresh out of the oven!

30 Cookies


  • 2 Cups (4 ½ dl) All Purpose Flour
  • 1 Teaspoon Baking Powder
  • 3/5 Cup (1 ½ dl) Powdered Sugar
  • 1 ½ Teaspoon Vanilla Powder
  • ¾ Cup + 2 Tablespoons (200 g) Room Temperature Butter, Cubed
  • ½ Cup (1 dl) Raspberry Jam


  1. In a big bowl, add all purpose flour, baking powder, powdered sugar and vanilla sugar. Mix until evenly distributed.
  2. Add the cubed, room temperature butter. Work with hands until dough comes together.
  3. Divide the dough into two pieces.
  4. Put each piece of dough on a cutting board and roll them out into two long rolls with both hands.
  5. Cut each roll into 15 pieces.
  6. Roll each piece into balls. Press into the middle until you have a deep dent. You can use your finger, or use the opposite end of a brush or spatula. Do this immediately after rolling each piece into a ball to avoid cracks. Put on a lined baking tray.
  7. Using a piping bag, fill each cookie with some raspberry jam.
  8. Bake at 400 °F / 200 °C for about 10 minutes.

Keep in an airtight container for 2 weeks, or keep in the freezer for 6 months.
