mine and the picky husband’s new favourite vegan Christmas cookie
When I was thinking of what holiday cookie to create, chocolate something came to mind because… it’s chocolate. But I was craving something just a little different and I didn’t want to overload you guys with chocolate recipes (would that really be that bad though?). I am so pleased with how these jam filled cookies turned out. They are chewy on the inside, crisp on the outside, nutty, and sweetened to perfection. They are just a damn good cookie. And when the Picky Husband loves a new recipe, that is always a reason to celebrate. I have a feeling these will be a regular treat in our home, and I’m definitely not complaining about that. So let chocolate take the back seat here and enjoy one of these thumbprint jam cookies.
how to make the best vegan thumbprint cookies
There are no tricks to making the best raspberry jam cookies, you just have to follow the recipe, and it’s actually quite straightforward. The best part is you will probably have some leftover raspberry chia jam to smother all over your toast in the morning. This recipe is easy to follow and the end result is quite mouthwatering. The cookie base is oaty and touched with a hint of nuttiness. These cookies aren’t overly sweet and the raspberry chia jam complements the cookie base beautifully. So I’ll tell you. The secret to making the best vegan thumbprint cookies is patience (while they bake) and an extra dose of holiday cheer thrown into the batter.
here are a few reasons why I love these raspberry jam cookies, so listen up!
- These vegan cookies are low in sugar, which is a bonus when you are holiday baking! They are loaded with fibre and protein to help balance out the sweetness, and the raspberry chia jam adds some fun and uniqueness to a classic shortbread cookie.
- These jam filled cookies are vegan and gluten free but no one will even guess. Just in case you have some non-vegans and gluten plus people celebrating the holiday season with you, I promise you they won’t know the difference.
- The Picky Husband gave his approval of these thumbprint cookies and gobbled them up so fast I know they will become a regular Christmas dessert in the years to come!
I feel very strongly that these vegan thumbprint cookies need to be on your to-do list this December. They are such a pleasing and delightful cookie to munch on this season. Perhaps you should even share a few with Santa on Christmas Eve. But that’s only if they last that long, and most likely they won’t.
