THUMBPRINT COOKIES


A sweet and buttery cookies, each of these  indented  cookies contains a special jammy center - strawberry. orange, raspberry  or whatever flavor you desire.  Normally it was rolled into a ball then flatten but now I had used a cookies cutter to do the job, simply filled the center with preserves/jam.

Serve these colorful bites with piping hot cup of tea or a glass of milk.

These colorful cookies are also great for serving at holiday party or for sharing at a cookie exchange.

THUMBPRINT COOKIES
Yield   :   50 cookies

125 g  soft butter
190 g all purpose flour
2 tablespoon cornflour
1 tablespoon ice water
1/4 tsp vanilla extract

FILLING
1/4-1/2 cup fruit jam of your choice

METHOD

Cream butter and vanilla extract until fluffy.

Gradually mix in the flour, corn flour and ice water to form into soft dough.

Chill dough for 30 minutes to 1 hour.


Pinch dough into small balls and place them onto baking sheet or roll out dough if using cookie cutter to shape the dough.

Make a deep indentation in the center of the dough/ball. I omit this since it already  made a indentation for you.


Fill each ball with  1/4-1/2 teaspoon of your favorite preserve/jam. Preheat oven @ 160 C.

Bake for 20 minutes. Let sit in the pan for 5 minutes, gently transfer onto wire rack.

When completely cool, store into an airtight container.
