Keto Thumbprint Cookies are one of my favorite cookies to make. They are Christmas cookies you need to make all year round.
keto Shortbread, thumbprint cookies
Optional refrigeration time
Blanched almond flour
Mix Almond flour and Xanthan gum and set aside
With a hand mixer or food processor mix butter and sweetener till light and fluffy
Mix in eggs and vanilla extract till combined
Add the almond flour / Xanthan gum mix into the wet ingredients and mix to combine
The dough would be crumbly don't worry about.
Line baking sheet with parchment paper or silicon mat
Scoop out dough by Tablespoonfuls onto your baking sheet till dough is out
Roll each dough between you palms to make a smooth ball
Make an indentation with your thumb then fill with jam
Pop cookie dough into the refrigerator for 30 mins (optional but recommended step)
About 5 mins before getting the dough out of the refrigerator, preheat oven to 350*F
Bake Cookies for 20 mins turn off oven and let cookies sit on cookie sheet for about 8 mins then transfer to cooling rack to cool completely.
If you are in a pinch you can bake the cookies immediately without refrigerating the dough I just like refrigerating because it gives time for the flavors to blend in.
If you are not refrigerating the dough preheat oven while moulding the dough
When the cookies gets out of the oven, they will still be soft don't worry they harden as they cool.
Store bought Jam gives a more glossy finish than homemade jam.
I highly recommend erythritol based sweeteners for making cookies. Xylitol tends to keep cookies softer.
