6 words. Jam-Filled. Thumbprint. Cookies. With. Almond. Glaze. That is all.
This year we are ringing in the new year with warm tea, jam-filled thumbprint cookies and a marathon of movies. This is my happy place! I am filling these cookies up with my favourite: raspberry jam. Plus, it is the only flavour of jam I currently have in my home. But you can use any flavour jam that you like. If you are looking to lighten this recipe, you can skip the glaze entirely.
I made a big batch so that I would have lots to take in to work and share with my co-workers. That was wishful thinking. It is so hard to resist these soft, buttery, melt-in-your mouth thumbprint cookies! At the rate I am going, this stuff is going to get eaten up in the next 2 days...
The good thing is that despite how gorgeous and sophisticated these cookies look, they are soo simple to make! All you need is a handful of ingredients and less than 20 minutes to prepare (although note that a 1-hour cooling time is required for the dough). I guess will just have to make another batch! 🙂
With a cookie this easy, they are basically a go-to for any holiday! Enjoy!Print
