Shoe Sale Cookies

Some people call these "Thumbprint Cookies" but I've affectionately renamed them "Shoe Sale Cookies"! They are so divine, you'd pass up a good shoe sale to get one!

"Manolo Blahnik...Christian Louboutin...Prada...outta my way, there's a jam-filled yummy in my future!"

Jam and life is complete!

My only piece of advice, double the recipe! They disappear faster than you can say stiletto...or bunion! (Super Hunk said they are so good they taste gourmet...he actually said "store bought" but I know what he meant!)

Shoe Sale Cookies
  • 8 tablespoons (1 stick) unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 1/2 cup packed light brown sugar
  • large egg, separated
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup cashews, finely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1/4 cup fruit preserves of your choice

  • 1. Preheat oven to 350ยบ F and line two rimmed baking sheets with parchment paper. Using an electric mixer on medium speed, beat butter and sugar until light and fluffy, about 3 minutes. Beat in egg yolk (reserve white) and vanilla. Reduce mixer speed to low and beat in flour and salt. Continue mixing on low until dough comes together in a ball.

  • 2. In a bowl, mix cashews and sugar. Roll dough into 1-inch balls, dip each in egg white, then roll in cashew mixture, turning to coat. Transfer to baking sheets. Using your finger, make a deep indentation in center of each ball. Transfer pans to refrigerator; chill 20 minutes.

  • 3. Fill center of each cookie with some of preserves (do not overfill or preserves will leak out while baking). Bake, rotating pans halfway through, until cookies are golden brown, about 10 minutes. Let cool for 5 minutes on baking sheets on wire racks, then transfer cookies to wire racks to cool completely.

  • I used three different kinds of fruit preserves. I wanted to use my three tier display and two would set my OCD on its end!

  • I hope this brightens your day, that's my goal!

I'm off to buy shoes...
