Almond Thumbprint Cookies filled with Mixed Red Berry Jam




Almond Thumbprint Cookies filled with Jam are so versatile. With a delicious base, you can add any type of jam to vary the flavors. These cookies were once my mom's Almond Christmas Crescents which I made for years. Now I make them into round thumbprint cookies - less work and less time!



  1. Measure out ingredients, including sifting the flour, and chopping the almonds if not chopped already
  2. Pre-heat oven for 350F
  3. In a large bowl, cream the butter, add sugar and salt until fluffy
  4. Add vanilla and nuts. Blend flour slowly into mix
  5. Roll into balls and place on ungreased cookie sheet. Flatten slightly and push center down with thumb
  6. Bake for 15-20 minutes
  7. As soon as you take them out of the oven, Spoon Mixed Red Berry Jam into the center of each cookie


  • Variations: Use your favorite flavored jam; or when fully cooled, roll in powdered sugar

  • Time Saver: Preheat the oven after the batter is mixed, before forming the cookies; Prepare 2 sheets at a time (4 total) so 2 are baking while two are being prepared.
