Ingredients

Dry ingredients– All-purpose flour and baking powder.

Butter– Salted or unsalted butter any one of them can be used, whichever is easily available.

Jam– Use your favorite jam, I have used blueberry jam.

How to make eggless thumbprint cookies

Preheat the oven to 180 degrees C.

Cream room temperature salted butter and sugar with the help of a hand mixer until it is light, fluffy, and combined well.

Add vanilla essence and then sift dry ingredients in it. Mix the mixture with the help of hands and knead it into a soft dough by adding 2 to 3 tablespoons of milk in it. The cookie dough is ready.

(Note– Do not add all the milk at once add a tablespoon, if required then add another tablespoon.)

Wrap and chill the cookie dough for an hour.

Line the baking tray with parchment paper and roll the cookie dough into small balls. You will get around 12 cookie balls.

Now, make an indentation with the help of a rounded back 1/4 teaspoon or with the help of your thumb. Fill each indent with blueberry jam or you’re favorite jam.

Bake it in a preheated oven at 180 C degrees for 15 to 20 minutes or until the edges are light brown. Once baked transfer the cookies to the wire rack after 5 minutes so that they can come to normal room temperature.

Store it in an airtight container. Serve it with milk or coffee or tea.

Top tips

Use measuring cups and spoons to measure the ingredients correctly.

Make sure to use room temperature butter, If you have unsalted butter then you can use that instead of salted butter.

Don’t forget to chill the cookie dough as it helps in preventing cookies from spreading.

Do not overfill the cookies with jam otherwise while baking it may become a mess as it will spill out.

You can use any jam like strawberry, mixed fruit, apricot, orange, mango, or homemade jam in these cookies.

If the jam is thick then microwave it or simply mix it with a spoon to get the spreading consistency.

Keep an eye while baking as every oven is different so bake it until the edges are light brown.
