Easy Thumbprint Cookies With Blackberry Jam

It’s a hard life trying to stay on top of everything. Between work, family, and managing a household, life can be pretty hectic. Add recipes to the mix and it’s quite a challenge. So, instead of trying to learn a new recipe or creating a new one, why not turn to something that’s been around for years? The thumbprint cookie has been around since the 1950s, and although some may argue that the recipe has changed, the basic idea has not.

Thanks to the blackberries in this recipe, it turns out these thumbprint cookies are not only cute, but also delicious. The rich blackberry jam pairs well with the delicate cookies, and gives them a sweet, sweet taste.

I am one of those people that love to bake cookies, but I usually do it around Christmas time. However, there are times when I find myself really wanting a cookie and don’t have the time to make one from scratch. For those times, I usually go to the store and pick up a box of cookies, but every time I look at the ingredients, I feel a little bit sick. I know if I look at the list of ingredients, there is a chance that there is way too much sugar in there and it’s not good for me.

I’ve found my new favorite cookie recipe, and I’m going to bake it for every holiday and party from now on! These blackberry jam-filled Thumbprint Cookies are simple to make. are soft, moist, slightly tangy, and sweet, and everyone will adore them. Watch the video to learn how we create them from start to finish!

Cookies that are a personal favorite of ours!

With the holidays upon us, you’ll need a go-to list of cookie recipes. Matt’s mother began making cookies from the beginning of December when he was a kid, so they were constantly on the table! You won’t be tempted by the Christmas sweets at work or among your non-keto relatives and friends if you bake the cookies on this list, and you can even share some low carb love!

That’s five delicious keto cookies you can make ahead of time and freeze for later use, or take to work to sneak some healthy fat into your coworkers’ life.

Cool Down Your Dough

Because the dough is too soft and loose to readily shape into cookies, this stage is critical. After you’ve prepared your dough, refrigerate it for at least 60 minutes in the fridge. This will prevent it from becoming too soft on you as you deal with it with your warm hands!

Another thing to think about is how fast you work with the dough. This isn’t the recipe for enlisting the help of your children, haha. This is a time-sensitive cookie recipe, so work quickly, fill those thumbprints with jam, and bake. You may invite the youngsters over to assist you with your meal!

Is It Better To Be Soft Or Crispy?

Personally, I like soft cookies, but if you want your cookies browned and crispy, you may do so as well! We’ve included the time for both choices in the directions (we make them soft in the video), and it won’t impact the blackberry jam in any way.

Prepare them ahead of time.

The wonderful thing about cookies, especially these, is that you can bake them ahead of time! The blackberry jam may be made in about ten minutes and kept in the fridge for up to two weeks in an airtight container. And, since the cookie dough can be made three days ahead of time and kept in the fridge, all you have to do when you’re ready to bake is shape the cookies, fill with jam, and bake!

  • In a food processor, combine almond flour, coconut flour, erythritol, baking powder, and salt. Pulse for 10 seconds, or until everything is mixed.

  • Pulse vanilla, stevia, egg, and butter in a food processor until completely combined and dough forms (will be very soft).

  • Refrigerate dough for at least 60 minutes after wrapping it in plastic wrap. Set aside a rimmed baking sheet lined with parchment paper.

  • Preheat the oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit and prepare a baking sheet with parchment paper.

  • Make the blackberry jam while the dough is chilling.

  • In a small saucepan over medium heat, combine the blackberries and lemon juice. Bring to a boil, crushing the berries with a fork as they soften.

  • Remove the pan from the heat and stir in the chia seeds and stevia. Allow to cool after thoroughly mixing.

  • Make tablespoon-sized balls of cookie dough and shape them into smooth balls. Place 2 inches apart on a baking sheet and create an indentation in the middle of the cookie dough with your thumb. Rep with the rest of the dough.

  • Fill each thumbprint all the way to the top with cooled jam.

  • Bake for 9 to 11 minutes, or until the sides begin to brown. Allow 5-10 minutes to cool before transferring to a cooling rack to cool fully before serving.

  • For up to one week, keep in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
