Missy Maki is one busy lady! Not only does she work full-time, she also writes a beautiful food blog AND hosts a weekly radio food talk show.

I met Missy when she answered my call for cookie recipes on Twitter and I'm so glad that she contacted me. She is full of energy and has a warm, energetic, friendly personality that is inspiring, to say the least.

How to describe myself……I am an Oregonian, full time career gal and loving and supportive wife to an amazing man. I am also a Radio Talk Show Host of “Simple Kitchen with Missy Maki” on AM 860 Sundays at 9am where I weave a warm, friendly approach to the intricate world of food and Portland foodies with a LOT of laughs, naturally!

I love cookies that are made from local items.  These cookies are a wonderful treat highlighting the bounty that Oregon has to offer – what better way to celebrate the holidays?

Oregon hazelnut thumbprints filled with raspberry jam
printer-friendly version

(makes 36 cookies)


1 3/4 cup flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
3/4 cup butter – softened
2/3 cup sugar
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup crushed hazelnuts
Raspberry jam


Whisk flour, baking powder & Salt together. In another bowl cream the butter and sugar for 5 minutes. Beat in the egg and vanilla until just combined. Slowly beat in the dry ingredients.

Make 1 inch balls, roll in hazelnuts, then press a thumb into the center of each…not too far in – 2/3 way is enough. Fill the centers with jam but not too much, it will overflow in the cooking process if you overfill and they will not be as pretty.

Bake for 12-15 minutes or until just golden brown. Enjoy!
