Thumbprint Cookies

This is a lovely easy recipe to make with toddlers.





Ingredients

225g self-raising flour

100g butter, cubed

100g caster sugar

1 egg

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1 tablespoon milk

Jam or chocolate chips

Extra flour for dusting


Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 220oC/200oC fan/Gas 6.

  2. Dust two baking trays with flour.

  3. Put the flour into a large mixing bowl and rub the butter in with your fingertips, until it looks like breadcrumbs.

  4. Stir in the sugar.

  5. Mix the vanilla extract with the egg in a bowl.

  6. Pour the egg into the flour mixture and mix well with a fork.

  7. Add 1 tablespoon milk and mash the dough with a fork until it starts to come together.

  8. Use your hands to form the dough into a ball.

  9. Flatten the dough on a plate and cut into 12 triangles.

  10. Roll each triangle into a ball, place on a baking tray and push down slightly. Repeat until all of the dough is used up.

  11. Make a deep thumbprint in each cookie. Make a little bigger if need be with your finger.

  12. Fill each well with jam or chocolate chips.

  13. Bake in the oven for 10-15 minutes until golden brown.

  14. Remove the cookies from the oven with oven gloves, allow to cool for a few minutes on the trays, then transfer to a wire cooling rack to cool completely. The jam will be very hot when the cookies come out of the oven so be careful!!
