Ingredients for Thumbprint Jam Cookies:

  • 1 tsp of vanilla extract
  • ¼ tsp of salt
  • egg yolk
  • 2¼ cups of flour
  • Any jam of your choice

How to Make Thumbprint Jam Cookies:

Step 1

Preheat your oven to 170°C or 340°F, then line two baking sheets with parchment paper, and set them aside. In a large mixing bowl, add the butter and powdered sugar, then beat them together until smooth and creamy, and add the egg yolk and vanilla extract.

Step 2

Keep mixing until incorporated, then add the flour and salt, and continue to stir until incorporated and a dough is formed. Scoop out a tablespoon full of dough, then roll it into a ball, and put it on the prepared baking sheets.

Step 3

Continue to roll the remaining dough into balls, then place them on the same baking sheet, and make sure to space them evenly. Slightly flatten each ball, then press the center with your thumb to make an indentation, and fill each dough with jam.

Step 4

Place them in the preheated oven, then allow them to bake for about 12 to 15 minutes, and dust them with powdered sugar. Let them cool down on a wire rack, then serve, and enjoy!
