Thumbprint Cookies {Gluten, Dairy, Sugar Free}

by | Jan 7, 2022 | Desserts | 0 comments

Thumbprint cookies are often hard to make completely sugar free as you have to find the right jam or make your own. 

However, when you find a jam that you are comfortable consuming make sure to bake these up as everyone will enjoy them! 

Gather all your ingredients. I am one of those types of bakers who doesn’t always seperate everything and just combines it all at once. 

But when you are mixing flours, I always reccommend making sure they are well combined before adding in the rest of the ingredients. 

With this Thumbprint Cookie recipe start by mixing all the dry ingredients together. Then add in everything else except the jam – save that for later! 

Now for the fun part! 

You have multiple options here:

  1. Use a cookie scoop – if you have one
  2. Use a tbsp scoop
  3. Use a tsp scoop

If you have a cookie scoop that’s amazing – I still have yet to invest in one. 

If you’d like to make 15 ish cookies then use a tablespoon size scoop. 

If you want to make a bunch of mini ones then you can use a teaspoon scoop.

When you place them on the cookie tray make sure they are well formed cookie balls, so when you place a hole in the centre they form correctly. 

They will crack a little bit, if this bothers you, just touch them up. Otherwise, the jam won’t fall out so don’t worry. 

Use your thumb, finger or spoon to place the correct size hole inside your cookie dough. 

It gets even better! Yes these cookies are a ton of fun to make, alright. 

Grab your jam:

  • Strawberry
  • Raspberry
  • Anything you’d like! 

Place the jam you chose into a bag and cut a hole in the corner so you can easily place it into the centre of the cookies. 

Place in the oven at 350 for 12-14 minutes. You’ll want them to just be very slightly browning. Let them cool for 5 minutes before you try one, then enjoy!
