Raspberry Jam Thumbprint Cookies

These super easy-to-make cookies will become a favorite in your household! You can use any jam flavor you desire!


– 1 C of vegan butter at room temperature – ⅔ C of granulated sugar – 1 tsp of almond extract – 1 tsp of vanilla extract – 2 C of all-purpose flour – ½ C of fruit preserves I like raspberry but any will work – Handful of semi-sweet chocolate chips I usually use Guittard or Trader Joe's

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (177 degrees C).

In a large bowl, beat (with an electric mixer) sugar and vegan butter until fluffy. Add almond and vanilla extract. Add flour by ½ cups, beating until it's well mixed.

Drop by tablespoons onto a lightly greased pan. I usually make the balls 2 tablespoons because I like large cookies. Using your thumb, make a small dent in the middle of the cookie and add the preserves and top with a chocolate chip.

Bake for 15 minutes, remove from the oven, and let cool for 30 minutes.
