Recipe by Chef Joey Z.

These cookies are very nutty tasting and a hint of jam in each thumb print is perfect. It gives it that nut butter and jam sandwich taste which I love. I used Agave Nectar in mine instead of honey. I got this recipe from the Living Without website. If you don't have any Gluten Free flour its easy to make. Here's a simple recipe from Living Without: MAKES 2 CUPS 1 cup rice flour ½ cup tapioca starch/flour ½ cup cornstarch or potato starch Seal in an air tight container.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 350'F. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Mix dry ingredients together.
  3. In a separate bowl, cream butter until white. Add sugar and honey and beat until fluffy. Add Sun butter and blend.
  4. Slowly incorporate dry ingredients into mixture. Cover and allow dough to sit in a cool place for 1 hour.
  5. Using a medium-size or smaller ice cream scoop, scoop out dough and roll each one in sugar. Place sugar-coated balls on prepared cookie sheet.
  6. Press your thumb or index finger into the center of each ball. Fill indentation with jam of choice.
  7. Bake in preheated oven for 8 to 10 minutes. Cookies will seem under-baked. Leave them on cookie sheet for 5 minutes. Then transfer to cooling rack.
