Lemon Thumbprint Cookies


Not a fan of chocolate?  Have no fear, these lemon thumbprint cookies are just the right sub!  I like lemon dessert, but you could easily make them blueberry, strawberry, raspberry, etc! You can just use preserves if you would like to bypass the step of making your own!  You could also go more traditional with a sweeter filling that is frosting-like.  Possibilities are endless! I used my lemon curd recipe for the middle.  The cookie is like a sugar cookie meets shortbread. Not too sweet, holds together nicely, but isn’t overwhelming in flavor so it makes a good carrier for the flavor in the thumbprint.

Thumbprint Cookie


  • 2 cups almond flour
  • 1 cup arrowroot powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1/3 cup pure maple syrup or honey
  • 1/4 cup melted grassfed butter

Preheat oven to 350F.

Combine the dry ingredients. Then add the wet ingredients until you get a ball of dough.  Form them into spall golf balls and flatten them a bit.  Use your thumb to put an indent in the center.  Place just enough filling to fill the center!  Bake for 20 minutes.  Let cool before eating. ;)
