Prep Time 20 minutes
Cook Time 10 minutes
Chilling Time 15 minutes
Total Time 45 minutes
Servings 13 cookies


  • ½ cup softened vegan butter (I used Earth Balance)
  • 6 tbsp organic cane sugar
  • 1 cup + 2 tbsp all-purpose white flour
  • ¼ tsp sea salt
  • ½ tsp vanilla extract
  • cup jam of your choice (stirred well to break up any clumps) I used blackberry jam
  • organic powdered sugar for garnish (optional)


  • Preheat oven to 350°
  • In a large mixing bowl, cream together the softened vegan butter and sugar with an electric mixer until it appears fluffy.
  • Add in the flour, salt, and vanilla. Continue mixing until well combined and the dough has formed.
  • Using a standard cookie scoop, scoop out 13 balls of dough and roll each into a ball using the palms of your hands. Place on a pan lined with parchment paper, evenly spaced.
  • With a ½ teaspoon, gently press a "thumbprint" into the center of each ball.
  • With the ½ teaspoon, scoop out a spoon full of the well stirred jam and place in the "thumbprint" area (I used a butter knife to help get the jam out) of each cookie.
  • Transfer the baking pan to the fridge for 15 minutes, then bake for 10 minutes in the oven.
  • Allow the cookies to cool completely. Once cooled, use a tea ball to garnish with a few sprinkles of powdered sugar. Enjoy!
