Gluten Free Thumbprint Cookies

This recipe for these easy gluten free thumbprint cookies is the best! They are filled with delicious jam and are perfect for Christmas. In our household these are a classic holiday cookie that we make every year. 



1 cup Unsalted Butter, softened 1/2 cup Granulated Sugar 1 large Egg 1 tsp. Vanilla Extract 2 Tbsp. Milk 2 cups Gluten Free Flour 1/2 tsp. Baking Powder 1/2 tsp. Sea Salt 1/2 cup Jam, for filling


Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper. In the bowl of a stand mixer beat together the butter, sugar, egg, vanilla and milk. Add the flour, baking powder and salt to the wet ingredients. Mix together until combined. Roll the dough into one inch balls and press your thumb in the center. Be sure not to press all the way through so your cookies don’t leak. Add a dollop of jam to the center of each cookie. Bake for 14 minutes or until the edges of the cookies are golden brown. Let the cookies cool completely before you move them to an air tight container to store. Cookies will last in a container for up to one week.


Any flavor of jam will work for these cookies. I like to use various flavors of jam so I have various colors of cookies.
