Embarrassingly Easy Thumbprint Cookies

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!!

  1. These look delicious! I eat gluten, but a co-worker of mine cannot, so whenever we bring in desserts and snacks, we always try to make it gluten-free. I actually just got the best recipe from that co-worker for a gluten free cheesecake. It’s AMAZING; she’s made it so many times and it disappears within minutes. The crust is made out of gluten free pretzels, toasted pecans, and butter (and there’s a layer of melted caramel in between the cheese and the crust). If you want the recipe, just let me know!
