"What's your favorite cookie?  Thumbprint cookies are one of my all-time favorite cookies. I love the combo of pecans and jam.  This pecan meal comes from Pearson Farm.  It's perfect for cookies, crusts, and cakes." The Salty Cooker


2 1/4 cup 1.1 Gluten-free Flour

2 tsp vanilla extract

1/4 tsp salt

2 eggs

3/4 cup sugar

1 cup butter, room temperature

1 1/2 cups Pearson Farm Pecan Meal, for rolling

1/2 cup strawberry jam, Pearson Farm's Peach Preserves or your favorite jam


Line 2 cookie sheets with parchment paper.  In a mixing bowl, add the butter and sugar and mix on high for 3 minutes. Mix in the eggs and vanilla.  Add in the salt and flour.  Once mixed, place in the refrigerator for 30 minutes.  Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.  Add the pecan meal to a bowl. Scoop out the cookie dough using a 1 1/2" ice cream scoop, roll in the pecan meal and place on the cookie sheet. Use a spoon to press down the center slightly and fill with the jam/preserves.  Bake for 11-13 minutes.  Remove and allow to cool completely. Enjoy!
