Vegan Jam Cookies

jamcookieThis recipe is based on a thumbprint cookie recipe, and these cookies have become one of my favorites over the years. I like that they add a bit of natural color to the cookie tray.

Combine shortening, sugar, “egg,” and vanilla. Mix well. In a separate bowl, combine flours and salt. Add the dry mixture to the wet mixture and stir. Use your hands to further mix the dough. Roll the dough into 1″ balls and place on an ungreased cookie sheet. Press your thumb into the center of each cookie to make a well for the jam. Fill each cookie with about 1 teaspoon of jelly. Bake at 375º for 12-14 minutes until just barely starting to brown around the edges. Do not over cook. Cool for a few minutes on the cookie sheet, and then remove to cool on a cookie rack. Makes about 16 cookies.

**Note about the flour: I use a locally milled flour, Daisy’s Organic Whole Wheat Pastry Flour. On the bag it says to use an extra 2 tablespoons for each cup of  flour in the recipe. So when I make these cookies I actually use a total of 1 cup and 2 tablespoons. Depending on your flour you may need to add 1-2 tablespoons of flour to achieve a consistency that you can roll.
