Thumbprint Cookies – Best, buttery and sweet cookies filled with raspberry jam. Easy recipe that anyone can make this holiday season
1 3/4 cups (~222g) all purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
3/4 cups (6oz/~170g) unsalted butter, softened
1/2 cup (~113g) fine/baking sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
Chez Pim Fetching Framboise Raspberry Jam
Sieve the flour and salt into a bowl. Whisk it and set aside.
Cream the butter and sugar until fluffy. Add in the vanilla extract. Beat to combine.
Slowly add in the flour mixture spoon by spoon. Use a spatula to scrap down the flour on the side and bottom as needed. Make sure the mixture is well combined. The dough becomes crumbly but will hold together when pinched.
Using your hand, take out approximately 1 tablespoonful of the dough. Knead it on your palm with your fingers a few times and then roll into a 1″ ball. Place them on the baking sheet 2″ apart. Use your thumb and press a well in the center. Fill each well with 1/2 teaspoon jam.
Bake for 10-12 minutes. Transfer to wire tray to cool completely before storing them in air tight container.

December is a happy month. It is a month about baking really outstanding cookies for the upcoming holiday season; it is also a month filled with holiday parties, great friends, and family. So this month, I am sharing a few of my favorite cookies recipes as well as party foods with you.
When I decided to make thumbprint cookies, I knew that I had to buy an excellent jam. After all, thumbprint cookies are precisely butter cookies filled with jam. Rasberry jam is an excellent filling for the thumbprint cookies. I love the fresh taste of the berries, the slight tartness, with just the perfect balance of sweetness, and the aroma…oh, the aroma and fragrance of the berries.
Anyway, thumbprint cookie is a holiday classic so if you are making them this year, you can try out my thumbprint cookies recipe. Happy holidays!
