Super soft and delicious vanilla thumbprint cookies filled with jam. The perfect Holiday cookie!
Thumbprint cookies are some of my favorite cookies to make! I’ve made a version of these cookies in the past that have a cheese danish-like filling and they were awesome so I knew using that cookie as a base for these jam-filled cookies would be delish! I made a few changes and here we are. The cookies are so super soft and the little vanilla bean flecks throughout each cookie is my favorite. Of course if you don’t have vanilla bean paste or simply don’t want to buy it, you can just substitute regular vanilla extract for the same amount called for in the recipe. No biggie!
The jam used in this recipe is a new discovery for me! Normally it’s so hard to find a store bought fruit spread that ACTUALLY tastes good and this Smucker’s Fruit & Honey Strawberry Fruit Spread does the job! I also bought the Triple berry flavor and both are equally delicious. I can’t wait to try all of the flavors! Blueberry Lemon, Strawberry Jalapeño and Concord Grape are the others available. They are all naturally sweetened with honey and are perfect for easy Holiday entertaining. Everyone loves thumbprint cookies! Try them with any of the flavors mentioned above and they’re sure to be a hit.
To make these cookies, you’ll prepare the dough and chill it for at least two hours. I dare you not to try it. It’s so super smooth and delicious from the cream cheese in the dough! Once the chilling time is up, you’ll roll the dough into balls and place them on the cookie sheet. I like to take the end of my wooden spoon or any thin, round object to make the indentation in the cookie dough. Fill each well with 1/2-1 tsp of the fruit spread and bake them up! Easy peasy. As long as you chilled the dough for the correct amount of time, they don’t spread much either so you can make more than you normally would in one batch!
When the cookies come out of the oven, they smell amazing and I bet you won’t be able to stop at just one!
