Jeweled Almond Thumbprint Cookies

Jeweled Almond Butter Thumbprint Cookies are not only delicious, they’re really easy to make. Made with almond butter, almond extract, and coarsely chopped almonds. If that wasn’t enough, each cookie gets a thumb “print” stamp of approval. Thumbprints can be filled with anything that you fancy. The obvious choice is jams and jellies but marmalade and lemon curd works super too.

Chocolate Thumbprint

If fruity isn’t your thing, that’s ok! There are many different options you can go too. Nutella is always a welcomed treat in thumbprint cookies. Almond butter and Nutella pair super together. Peanut butter based thumbprint cookies with a Nutella thumbprint are a favorite in my house. Another favorite in my house is to fill the thumbprint with Philadelphia Cheesecake Filling. If you have never tried this product, what are you waiting for??

Thumbprints Filled

For this recipe, fill the thumbprint indentation with any flavor of jam, jelly, marmalade or curd. We used three different kinds of preserves and one marmalade giving the cookies a jeweled appearance when lined up on a plate. Thumbprint cookies are filled with Cherry Preserves from Trader Joe’s,
Gooseberry Preserves, Lingonberry Preserves and Orange Elderflower Marmalade from IKEA. Almond butter is also from Trader Joe’s.
