These cookies are absolutely delicious! They are a favourite of mine and also very easy to make. My grandmother used to bake them when I was a little girl, so always when I eat these I think of her. They are perfect to have at hand in the freezer. I made mine with raspberry jam, but of course you can use any jam you like.
Raspberry Thumbprint Cookies, makes about 20
4 1/2dl flour
2tsp vanilla sugar
Place all dry ingredients in a bowl, add the diced butter and work quickly to a smooth dough. Do not overwork it. It's easiest to use a food processor or a stand mixer but you can use your hands too.
Preheat the oven to 200 degrees C.
Divide the dough into 20 pieces. Roll each piece into a small boll and place in paper cups. Use your thumb to press a deepening in each cookie. Fill it with your favourite jam.
Bake your cookies for 10-12 minutes. Don't let the cookies colour too much.
