Thumbprint Cookies

with Preserves (Yields 36 Cookies)

A cookie beloved by all! The choices of preserve fillings are plentiful and delectable. These are especially delightful to make with kiddos, but don’t let that stop you from making a batch just for yourself at 9 pm on a Wednesday night.
INGREDIENTS
- 1 3/4 Cup all-purpose flour
- 1/2 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 tsp kosher salt
- 3/4 Cup (1 1/2 sticks) butter, softened
- 1/2 Cup granulated sugar
- 1 Large egg
- 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
- Assorted Wildfare Preserves with Chia Seeds*, for filling cookies
- 1 tsp Wildfare Extra Virgin Olive Oil (if needed)
PREPARATION
1
Preheat oven to 350º and line two baking sheets with parchment.
2
Combine dry ingredients in a large bowl: flour, baking powder, and salt.
3
In another bowl, beat butter and sugar until pale and fluffy, about 3 minutes. Beat in egg and vanilla, then add dry ingredients in two batches until thoroughly incorporated.
4
Using a teaspoon (or small cookie scoop if you have one), form 1” balls and place onto prepared baking sheets. Press a thumbprint into center of each ball, 1/2” deep. Fill with a small spoonful of Wildfare Preserves with Chia Seeds*.
5
Bake until edges of cookies are golden, 13 to 14 minutes. NOTE: Wildfare Preserves are filled with large, luscious chunks of fruit (unlike jams, which are relatively smooth). In the baking process, if the preserve dollops start to over brown, gently brush on a small amount of EVOO to protect the fruit bits from burning.
6
Cool on baking sheets before serving.

*The choices are plentiful and delectable: Apricot, Strawberry, Raspberry, Fig, Plum, Tart Cherry, Quince, and Orange Marmalade. Choose a few for variety in flavor and color.

This is a great recipe for anyone to enjoy at any time. It is especially delightful to make with kiddos (even though their thumbs may be a bit tiny to achieve the proper sized divot in the cookie dough). Letting them choose the flavors of the preserves makes it even more special.
