Thumbprint cookie…Koko’s variation ;)

I was inspired last night to bake this cookie from seeing an awesome bloggers post on, “Coffee and cake, an afternoon break”.

Thanks for the idea http://lillysuesbitesandbrews.com/ Check out her site when you get a chance.  Her pictures make you hungry!

My variation on this classic thumbprint cookie:

1/2 cup butter

1/2 cup coconut oil

1/2 cup brown sugar

2 eggs

1 teaspoon vanilla bourbon

1/2 cup coconut flour

2 cup flour

1/4 teaspoon salt

1 1/2 cups chopped walnuts

any jam of your choosing

Mix butter, coconut oil, sugar; until creamy.  Add eggs, vanilla.  Add coconut flour, flour, salt. Lastly the walnuts.

I formed the cookie balls using a tablespoon.  To make the thumbprint I used the back of the tablespoon.  I put about a 1/4 teaspoon of jam in the center.

Bake at 375 for 12 minutes. I let the cookies rest for 2 minutes before taking them off the baking sheet and let them cool the rest of the way on wire rack.  Enjoy!

Used a measuring tablespoon and heaped it up. Makes it round automatically.

That’s the tablespoon I used to form the balls and to “thumbprint” it.

Jam time! I used a jam blend of pomegranate, blueberry and raspberry.

Right out of the oven. Timed it for 2 minutes before removing off the baking pan and onto wire rack.

Everyone loved this cookie.  The next day they were even better, if that’s possible!

  1. These look amazing! I cannot wait to try your recipe, and, more importantly, to taste the cookies themselves.
    If they taste half as good as they look, I’ll be happy.
    My taste buds thank you in advance!!!!
