It is that time of year when baking is in full swing and Christmas traditions begin. Gluten-Free Thumbprint Cookies cookies are always on top of our list.

4 Things we love about thumbprint cookies!

— The thumbprint cookies are festive and pretty because they have jam in the center, and they will melt in your mouth.

— With only a few basic ingredients, you can make gluten-free thumbprint cookies that your entire family will love.

— What I love about this gluten-free cookie recipe is that you can personalize it by using a jam of your choice. I love cherry jam          not only because of the deep red colour, but the jam compliments the cookie flavour.

— And, since the jam sweetened the cookie, I cut back on the sweetener.

thumbprint cookie recipe overview

First, mix everything, roll the dough into a ball and poke a hole in the middle using your finger. Then, all you do is fill in your favourite jam. That’s it, super easy, pretty and delicious.

To make it into a hostess gift, use a small festive box, layer the bottom with pretty paper and fill it with cookies. I would also add a note that they are gluten-free. 

Trust me on this. Your hostess will always appreciate freshly baked gluten-free cookies, especially during the holiday season. A freshly baked cookie beats any store-bought gluten-free cookie, and you can make them at a fraction of the cost. Enjoy and happy holidays!

I recommend doubling the recipe because the gluten-free thumbprint cookies go very fast.
