Almond Thumbprint Cookies – Vegan & Gluten Free
Posted By Allyson Kramer On June 9, 2011 @ 3:27 pm In Gluten-Free Vegan Baking,Vegan Cookies and Bars | No Comments
These cookies are as simple to make as they are beautiful. Use any flavor of preserves you’d like in these…. I happen to really love the amber glow of the apricot preserves. A thicker jam or fruit preserve is key to having a uniform color puddle in your cookies. Sprinkle with a touch of confectioners sugar for the ultimate eye-popper.

Makes: 24 cookies
Preheat oven to 350 °F.
Cream together margarine and sugar until smooth. Add in prepared flaxseed meal and almond extract and mix well.
In separate bowl, combine baking powder, sorghum flour, potato starch, almond meal and xanthan gum.
Gradually add flours into sugar mixture until a stiff dough forms.
Shape into 1-inch balls and place onto cookie sheet lined with parchment paper or a silpat mat.
Use the back of a 1/2 teaspoon (or your thumb) to make an indent in the cookies while slightly flattening them.
Fill with a little less than a teaspoon of preserves. Bake for 15 minutes in preheated oven and then let cool completely.
Sprinkle with confectioner’s sugar and have yourself a cookie.
