Thumbprint Cookies

Thumbprint Cookies

2 cups flour*
1 cup pecan meal
1 cup sugar
1 cup coconut, shredded
1/2 cup oil
2/3 cup water
1 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. almond flour
strawberry jam, fruit sweetened

Mix all ingredients except strawberry jam together in a mixing bowl. Adjust water amount, adding more if the dough is too dry to form into small balls.

Form dough into small balls and place on prepared baking stone or cookie sheet. Use thumb to form a hole in the center of each cookie. Fill with strawberry jam.

Bake at 350 degrees for 10 - 12 minutes.

*your favorite gluten-free flour or flour blend will work great.


  1. Nothing looks more festive than a cookie with some jewel like jam in the center. Yummo!

  2. I really need to bake some cookies this year...

  3. I do enjoy thumb print cookies, though I rarely make them. Love the ornament.

  4. I love your tea time ornaments!

    I had some but gave them to my daughter for her Christmas tree.

    For some reason, I've had it in my mind that I was cooking Christmas dinner on Tuesday, even though I KNEW we were celebrating it here on Christmas Eve so the newlyweds could spend Christmas Day with her extended family (which is fine with us!).

    I find myself needing to go to the grocery store soon and do some cooking Sunday afternoon. I guess that is what happens when we change our celebrations that have been set in stone... sigh.
