Strawberry Thumbprint Cookies Recipe


  • dough
  • filling

step by step method

1. Step 

put all ingredients for the dough in one bowl and mix them together. Chll in the fridge for 10 min. Roll out the dough thin with a rolling pin.

2. Step 

Divide the dough on two. From half of the dough you cut out round cookies (these will be the downsides.) The other half needs to be cut out round first and then you cut out little hearts in the middle (these will be the top parts). The out-cut hearts you can use for decoration later.

3. Step 

Look at the picture. Right is the top part and left the down part. Now spread all the cookies on a baking tray and bake for app. 15 min in the oven at 180°C.

4. Step 

After they are done you spread a small bit jam on all round downside cookies. Sprinkle the top cookies with powdered sugar and place them on the jammed downside cookies. Now your cookies should look like mine on the pictures. Arrange on a plate and enjoy...

Tips & variations

  • Of course you can fill your cookies with any jam you like or with melted chocolate for example.
