Thumbprint Cookies

These thumbprint cookies are easy to make and a great way to show off some of your homemade jam (although store bought jam is okay too!). These cookies also freeze well. You can use any kind of jam in these cookies. I made some with apricot jam (my favorite) and some with strawberry jam.

Easy recipe for thumbprint cookies. One of my favorite Christmas cookie ideas for holiday cookie exchanges.

 

Roll the cookie balls in ground almonds and place on ungreased cookie sheet. Gently press your thumb into the center of each cookie. Place a small amount of jam into the center of each cookie. Don’t put in too much jam or it will spread too much in the oven. Just a little drop of jam is fine.

 

Bake for about 10 minutes or until lightly browned.

 

Makes about 4 dozen cookies.
