Eggless Custard Thumbprint Jam Cookies

Making out cookies with custard powder is in my to do list since a long, finally i prepared some custard thumbprint cookies as eggless version last weekend. This cookies goes for simple ingredients and seriously very addictive, i baked almost two dozen of this cookies and i just had a chance to taste two cookies only. Yep they just vanished quickly,especially among the lil ones.

These cookies are super delicious and buttery, with strawberry jam i dont have words to say how yummy these cookies are.You can use any kind of preserves or else nutella spread to fill this easy breezy thumbprint cookies. My next try is gonna be surely a nutella filled thumbprint cookies, as these cookies are super duper hit among my kids.Sending to my own event Healthy Diet- Healthy Finger Food guest hosted by Preeti of Isingcakes.


2cups All purpose flour
1/2cup Custard powder
1cup Butter
1/2cup Confectioner's sugar
1tsp Vanilla extract
Strawberry jam (as per need)

Prheat the oven to 350F, line baking sheet over a baking tray and keep aside.

Sift together the all purpose flour and custard powder, add in the vanilla extract,keep aside.

Whisk the butter,confectioner's sugar together until they turns creamy, add immediately the flour-custard powder mixture and gently mix until they forms as a soft dough.

Shape the dough into small walnut sized balls and flatten them gently. Place them on the lined baking tray.

Make an indentation in the middle of the each cookie and bake for 15-20minutes.

Meanwhile heat enough strawberry jam in microwave oven for few seconds.

Once the cookies gets cooled, fill the cookies with the melted jam.

Enjoy with a cup of tea.
