I whipped up these extremely easy cookies Sunday afternoon before my family and I went to the lake. We had some sugar cookie mix on hand, and I decided that thumbprint cookies were a good way to spice up an everyday sugar cookie.
First, prepare a gluten free sugar cookie mix as directed on the box. I used Betty Crocker. It has a great flavor and consistency. My gluten-eating family members said that they tasted exactly like normal, gluten-filled cookies! The directions called for 1 tsp. of vanilla, but I substituted 1 tsp. of almond extract. The almond flavor goes great with the strawberry jam filling.
After mixing the ingredients together, roll 1 tbsp. of dough in a ball and put on an ungreased baking sheet. Then, make a well with your thumb in the middle of each cookie. After that drop 1 tsp. of strawberry jam into the well. Bake as directed on the box.
These cookies are from a box, but they’re dressed up to look like you spent a lot of time and effort on them. Not to mention the fact that they are delicious too! Yum!!
