Thumbprint cookies.

I've skipped one episode of Great British Bake Off as my blog post, because I am so busy at the moment and those cookies are just simple to make so I've decided to share the recipe with you. I made them few times already and everyone seemed to love them. They're good with a morning coffee and also as an evening snack while watching a movie. You can of course choose different flavours to the dough or put nutella instead of jam (but then do it after baking). This recipe would give you about 35 cookies, but you could double the ingredients if you want. They're gone so quickly!

  • 125 g sliced, cold butter
  • 1/3 glass of caster sugar
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 110 g plain flour
  • 110 g walnuts or almonds in powder
  • 1 tsp of vanilla or almond extract
  • half tsp of baking powder
  • pinch of salt

  • jam to fill the cookies in, the best is the thickiest, but every jam will do

Place all ingredients in a bowl and mix it well until you get the pastry dough (you can also mix ingredients by hand). Make a ball from the dough, then make it flat, put cling film all over and put it into the fridge for 60 minutes.

After that time tear off little pieces of dough and make little balls from them (a size of walnut). Put everything on a baking tray with a baking parchment on it with small spaces between the balls (they will rise during baking). Use your finger or the end of your wooden utensil and make a well in the center of each cookie. Using a teaspoon, fill each well with jam, being careful not to overfill the wells.

Bake in 170 degrees for 13-15 minutes or when cookies are a bit golden. Take them out of the oven, cool them for a while on a baking tray and then place onto a wire rack.
