Jam Thumbprint Cookies

Ingredients 

1 ¾ c. all-purpose flour
½ tsp. baking powder
½ tsp. fine salt
¾ c. unsalted butter, softened
2/3 c. sugar, plus more for rolling
1 large egg
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1/3 c. Equal Exchange Organic Strawberry Jam or Organic Marmalade
 

Directions 

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Whisk the flour, baking powder and salt together in a bowl.

In a separate bowl, whip the butter and sugar together with a hand-held mixer (or strong arm) until fluffy, about 5 minutes. Beat in the egg and vanilla until combined. Mix in dry ingredients gradually.

Scoop the dough into 1-inch balls and roll in sugar. Place on a baking sheet, leaving space between them. Press a thumbprint into the center of each ball, about ½ inch deep. Fill in each indentation with about ¾ teaspoon jam or marmalade.

Bake cookies until the edges are golden, about 15 minutes. Cool cookies on baking sheets and serve!
