Jam Thumbprint Cookies

Jam Thumbprint Cookies

Delicious, buttery, flaky, crunchy cookies with a sweet strawberry zing. Yep, that’s jam thumbprint cookies for you!

If you haven’t tried making these delights, you should.

We piped our jam into the thumbprint holes. You can snip the corner of a plastic sandwich or quart-size bag, fill it with desired amount of jelly, and pipe from there!

Our recipe only made about three dozen because we made them larger. I do think the smaller size (made with a melon ball-sized scooper) works well, and looks adorable!

  • 1 1/2 cups butter, softened
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 3 egg yolks
  • 3 cups sifted flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla
  • strawberry or raspberry jam

Cream butter and sugar together.

Add egg yolks, flour and vanilla; mix well.

If dough is too soft to handle, add a little more flour. Roll dough into little balls.

Place on ungreased cookie sheet. Make a thumb print in the center of each. Fill thumbprint with jam. You can use a spoon or you can pipe it.

Bake at 400° for 8 to 10 minutes, until light brown around edges.
Makes 8-10 dozen cookies.
