Soft and Chewy Raspberry Thumbprint Cookies


Soft and Chewy Raspberry Thumbprint Cookies – Great with lemon or almond extracts! {grain-free, gluten-free and dairy-free}
  • Prep Time: 
  • Cook Time: 
  • Ready in: 
  • Yield: 32 cookies

Ingredients

  • 2 cups (200 grams) blanched almond flour
  • 1/4 cup (34 grams) coconut flour, sifted if lumpy
  • 1/2 cup (100 grams) raw or granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 7 tablespoons (98 grams) coconut oil, melted and cooled slightly1
  • 1 large egg, room temperature
  • 1 teaspoon almond extract
  • 1/3 cup (100 grams) raspberry jam or jam of choice
  • 1/2 cup (85 grams) white chocolate for piping, optional (omit for dairy-free)

Directions


  1. In a medium bowl, stir together the almond flour, coconut flour, sugar, baking powder and salt.
  2. In another medium bowl, stir together the coconut oil, egg and almond extract.
  3. Add the flour mixture to the wet mixture and stir just until combined. The dough will feel quite wet. Let sit for 10 minutes, which allows the coconut flour to absorb the liquid.
  4. Preheat the oven to 350 °F (175 °C) and line a cookie sheet with a piece of parchment paper.
  5. Roll the dough into 1" balls and place 2" apart on the prepared cookie sheet. The dough will feel quite greasy but this is okay.
  6. Using your thumb, make an indentation about 3/4 of the way down into each cookie. You may want to re-form the edges a little to make them prettier.
  7. Fill each indentation with 1/2 teaspoon of jam. Be sure not to overfill them.
  8. Bake for 8 minutes or until the cookies have barely started browning on the bottom.
  9. Let the cookies, which will be very soft, cool for 5 minutes on the baking sheet and then remove to a wire rack to cool completely.
  10. Pipe with white chocolate, if desired.
  11. Refrigerate in an airtight container for up to 4 days.

Notes

  1. If you use unrefined coconut oil, these will likely have a coconut taste to them. With refined coconut oil, there will be no coconut taste.

Hough Bakery - butter cookies

Hough Bakery By Gail Greenberg&Diane Rolfe Hough Bakery was an integral part of me and my family's lives, (most people in Cleveland for that matter) I was heartbroken when they closed. I have always remembered the cookies and doughnuts from this magical bakery. Their products were like nothing I had ever had before (and it was extra magical because I was so little/young) I have been searching for about 30 years for something similar - no luck... but, thank goodness there are a few recipes floating around the internet! Unfortunately even with Archie's being open, my food afflictions will not allow me to enjoy those old time favorites. Luckily, converting is what I do and that's what this site is about so I will switch some things around and see how it turns out! The recipe below is just ONE of my all time favorites, please enjoy! Memories of a signature blue-and-white, string-tied cake box filled with a streusel coffee cake, hot cross buns, sticky pecan rolls, coconut cho…
