Chai Spiced Thumbprint Cookies – Gluten Free
Gluten-Free Chai Spiced Thumbprint Cookies…yes it is that time of the year to start with festive cookies. Perfectly spiced with chai spices, coated with spiced sugar mix and finished with ginger marmalade. This gluten-free chai spiced thumbprint cookie is a one-bowl recipe and so much fun to make. Deliciously flavoured with chai spices, such as cardamom, ginger, cinnamon, nutmeg and a pinch of black pepper. The chai flavour is not overpowering, but it does make this cookie extra special. The cookies are extra buttery with a dollop of ginger marmalade in every cookie. I used ginger marmalade, but feel free to use any jam or marmalade that you love. The reason I used ginger flavour is because it ties in beautifully with the chai spices. There is so much flavour going on in these festive gluten-free cookies.
For the recipe, it is straight forward. All you need is one bowl, so super easy cleanup. First, you combine the butter, sugar, egg, vanilla and spices. Then you mix in the flour and create small cookie balls. What I love about this cookie dough it does not stick to your hands when you are making the balls. Then roll the balls in spiced sugar, create a small hole in the middle of each cookie and fill with marmalade. That is it, nothing to it. When it comes to holiday baking, I sometimes use refined sugar….sorry, but once in a while, we can all indulge — the good thing about this recipe, I used less than half the sugar you would use in a typical sugar cookie recipe. I am super excited about this cookie because it is festive and delicious to every last bite. I feel it is never too early to start collecting cookie recipes for the holiday season, don’t you agree? Enjoy!
