|Sunflower Thumbprint Cookies with Strawberry Preserves|
Sunflower Butter and Jam Thumbprint Cookies
Adapted from this Peanut Butter and Jelly Thumbprint recipe at My Recipes
2 cups all purpose "white" flour (closer to a whole wheat)
1/4 tsp salt
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
1/3 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup sunflower butter
1/4 cup margarine
2 cups eggs
1 tsp vanilla extract
1. Combine dry ingredients.
2. Combine sugars, margarine in a large bowl or stand mixer and stir until whipped. Add eggs one at a time. Add in vanilla and gradually add in dry ingredients.
3. With oiled hands, roll out little balls of cookie dough onto a parchment paper lined cookie sheet and indent middle with your thumb. Refigerate for one hour.
4. Bake at 350 degrees for 14 minutes and allow to fully cool before adding about 1/2 tsp of jam. (I got impatient and added the jam, leaving a jammy pool under the cookie. Really is best to follow directions sometimes!)
