Jam Thumbprint cookies are one of the all time classics in my home during the Christmas season. The first time I made these was just before the first cookie party I ever hosted. In this post I share my recipe and unique images from years past. Don’t forget to scroll down and get your free recipe that is printable so you can add it to your cookbook.
Jam Thumbprint Cookies Recipe
Over the years I have tried different variations of this Jam Thumbprint Cookie recipe. It has come to my conclusion after many different cookie tastings (and baking) that using homemade jam is THE BEST! If you don’t have time to make your own jam with seasonal berries be sure to use a jam preserve you love to eat by itself. Kind of like the rule for using wine in your cooking: Only use what you would drink or eat on its own. Below are the simple ingredients needed for this all time favorite cookie.
- sweetened coconut flakes
Don’t be afraid to try new jams and curds. This year I found a lemon curd at Aldi that I tried in this recipe. It ended up being the first cookie gone at the Cookie Party! In the years to come I hope to try making my own lemon curd so stay tuned!
