Thumbprint Cookies

Thumbprint cookies are quite deceiving. They look fancy, and yet they are completely easy to make. The best part about them is how adaptable they are based on the filling you choose. We find that jams with “no sugar added” are still PLENTY sweet from the natural fruit sugars and recommend them.

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.2. In the bowl of a stand mixer (or use a hand mixer), cream butter and sugar together. It should look fluffy and take about 5 minutes. Add the vanilla.

3. In a separate medium bowl, stir together whole wheat flour, all-purpose flour, salt and baking powder. Turn the mixer on low speed and gradually add the flour to the butter mixture. Mix just until the flours are incorporated.

4. Portion the dough using a tablespoon measuring spoon into 1 ¼ inch balls. Place on a baking sheet. Press in with thumb and fill with a teaspoon of desired jam.

5. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes or until the edges are golden brown. Let cool and serve.
