Decorating Tips: Choose a variety of jams to create a colorful assortment. You can sprinkle the cookies with powdered sugar for an extra touch of sweetness and elegance. For those who like a little more decadence, a drizzle of melted chocolate over cooled cookies can enhance their look and taste.

Ingredients:

  • 160 g softened butter
  • 150g powdered sugar
  • A hint of vanilla extract
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 200-250 g all-purpose flour (adjust if necessary for consistency)
  • 1 tablespoon of milk
  • Jam of your choice for garnish

Instructions:

  1. In a mixing bowl, beat the butter with the powdered sugar and vanilla until light and fluffy.
  2. Stir in egg yolk until just combined.
  3. Gradually sift in the flour, adding just enough to form a soft but not too sticky dough.
  4. Let the dough rest for about 15 to 30 minutes to make it easier to handle.
  5. Preheat your oven to 180°C (356°F) and line a baking tray with baking paper.
  6. Shape the dough into small balls, then flatten it slightly. Use your thumbs or a cookie stamp to create a heart-shaped imprint in the center of each cookie.
  7. Lightly fill each indentation with jam before baking.
  8. Bake for 10 to 17 minutes or until the cookies just start to turn golden brown around the edges.
  9. Remove from the oven and, if desired, add a little more jam to completely fill the indentations.
  10. Let the cookies cool on the baking sheet for a few minutes before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely.

Enjoy these comforting thumbprint cookies, a sweet treat that is sure to bring smiles and a touch of love to your day!
