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.

Can you say delicious?! This was a hit. Must make again.

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