These are decadent, soft, and simply delicious. Fill them with your favorite jam or preserve and you got a hit! My personal favorite? Raspberry Jam.... Of course =)

How to Make Shortbread Thumbprint Cookies

Step-by-Step

  1. Cream butter and sugar together. Beat in extract; slowly adding flour to the mix until the dough makes a ball.
    *You may refrigerate for about an hour if you wish but it is not needed.
  2. Form small 1 inch balls in your hand and set them on a baking pan lined with parchment paper.
  3. Use your thumb to stamp each ball. This will make a small indentation on the cookie to fill with your preserve. Add your preserve; making sure that it will not spill over when baking.
  4. Bake at 350 degree oven for about 14-16 mins.
  5. Cool and then drizzle with glaze.
