These thumbprint cookies are ridiculously easy to make. Seriously…they might be the simplest cookies ever, and they’re also really delicious. I adapted them from the Jammin’ Sugar Cookie Thumbprints recipe in my dear friend Abby Dodge’s cookbook—Desserts 4 Today—so that they’re gluten-free (in fact they’re free of all grains). This means they’re perfect for nibbling on this week if you keep kosher for Passover; they’ll be lovely on your Easter table, too, if you’re looking for an alternative to wheat-filled cookies.
Thumbprint cookies are great because you can fill them with SO many things. Take this opportunity to show off (and maybe use up, if necessary) your favorite jams, marmalades, fruit curds, and nut butters.
I filled the cookies you see here with homemade chocolate raspberry jam, tangerine vanilla marmalade (so lovely: the recipe is found in here), Meyer lemon curd, and peach rose petal jam (I promise to share this recipe this summer…it’s amazing). I also made a few with almond butter.
Have fun with these cookies, and have a very happy Passover or Easter if you’re observing one of these holidays this week :)
