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.
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.
Using a cookie scoop measure the dough and roll into balls. Then, press your thumb in the center or use a tart press to make an indentation. 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 at 350 degrees for 14 minutes or until the edges of the cookies are golden brown.
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.
