Dalmatia® Fig Spread Thumbprint Cookies

Dalmatia Fig Spread Thumbprint CookiesINGREDIENTS

1 3/4 c. all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. kosher salt
3/4 c. butter softened
1/2 c. sugar
1 large egg
1 tsp. vanilla


About 1/2 cup Dalmatia® Fig Spread or other Dalmatia® spreads you might fancy more (Dalmatia® Fig Orange Spread

Dalmatia® Organic Strawberry Spread).


    1. Preheat oven to 350º and line two baking sheets with parchment. In a large bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, and salt.
    2. In another bowl, beat butter and sugar until pale and fluffy, 5 minutes. Beat in egg and vanilla, then add dry ingredients in two batches until incorporated.
    3. Scoop up walnut size dough balls onto prepared baking sheets. Press a thumbprint into the center of each ball, 1/2” deep. Fill with a small spoonful of Dalmatia® Fig Spread of your choice.
    4. Bake until edges of cookies are golden, 13 to 14 minutes. Cool on baking sheets before serving.

Some recipes for thumbprint cookies suggest to bake the dough before adding the Dalmatia® Fig Spread, but we like adding the fig spread prior to baking so that it gets warm and bakes into the dough.
