This recipe yields delicious buttery jam thumbprints with a little crunch from the sesame seeds. Its easy and quick to make (no chill time) and looks very festive. You can use any type of jam you like best or try some nutella or nut butter.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 12 cup flour (might need a bit more)
  • 1 12 tablespoons sugar (scant)
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1 tablespoon butter (generous)
  • 1 tablespoon jam (or nutella or nut butter)
  • 12 tablespoon sesame seeds

Directions

  1. In a bowl combine flour, sugar, salt and butter. Knead into a smooth dough. If it is too crumbly, add a little milk or water (just enough to make it workable). If it is too wet, add enough flour to make dough workable.
  2. Put the sesame seeds onto a plate or platter.
  3. Take off walnut-sized dough nuggets and roll them into balls. Flatten them slightly pressing them into the sesame seeds.
  4. Transfer cookies to a paper-lined baking sheet and make an indentation in the middle of each cookie using your fingers or the handle of a spoon. Fill this with jam/nutella/nut butter.
  5. Bake in the preheated oven at 190°C/375°F for 12-15 minutes or until bottoms are slightly golden.
  6. Allow to cool on the baking sheet for 5 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
