A longtime holiday cookie favorite adapted to be gluten-free
Fun to make & to eat!
Fingers will be all over these Thumbprint Cookies!!!
The recipe goes back to when I was in preschool! They are known in my house as Teacher Anne’s Thumbprint Cookies. Isn’t it funny how some recipes stay with you through the years? They are a favorite of my older son & one of my nephews but we all enjoy them, and my boys & nieces love making them.
We’ve been baking them gluten-free with GF Jules all-pupose flour for 7 years now and no one knows the difference! So yummy! Hope you like them as much as we do!
A longtime holiday cookie favorite adapted to be gluten-free. NOTE: the dough requires being chilled for an hour. I often make it a day ahead and just take it out of the refrigerator an hour before we're ready to bake them.
1 cup butter, softened (For dairy-free, you could use Earth Balance instead)
½ cup sugar
2 egg yolks
1 tsp vanilla
Assorted jams & jellies to taste
Make the dough
Sift together the flour and salt (I just mix in a bowl with a pastry cutter)
Cream together the butter and sugar until well mixed
Beat in the egg yolks and vanilla
Stir in the flour mixture
Chill for at least 1 hour (if chilling overnight, take out of refrigerator about an hour before baking)
Roll, fill with jelly and bake
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F and line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper
Roll dough into small balls
Place on lined baking sheet
Press the middle of each cookie with your thumb to make a hollow
Place in each hollow ¼ tsp jam or jelly
Bake for 12 minutes
