Recipe for Lemon Ginger Thumbprints


Lemon and ginger are a classic combination, especially when paired in these Lemon Ginger Thumbprints. Ginger Jam fills the center of light, buttery cookies flavored with lemon; they are both attractive and scrumptious. While these cookies are great any time of year, they look especially pretty on holiday treat trays; they’re also perfect for a spring or summer tea. They can be made ahead, and will keep for a week or two in a covered container at room temperature; they can also be frozen for several months.

If ginger jam is difficult to find in your area, it’s easy to make at home using the directions inside the pectin package. I would be happy to post my recipe on the Desserts Forum if any of you are interested. Alternately, it can be ordered online from Amazon (see link at the bottom of this article).

About 5 dozen cookies

2 cups butter (no subs)
1 cup sugar
2 egg yolks
Zest of 1 lemon
4 cups flour
1/2 teaspoon salt

1 cup ginger jam or preserves
  1. Preheat the oven to 350°.

  2. Cream the butter, sugar, and egg yolks until light and fluffy.

  3. Stir in the flour and salt; mix well.

  4. Scoop teaspoonfuls of dough, roll them into a ball, and place on parchment-lined baking sheets 1" apart.

  5. Make a deep indentation in the middle of each of the balls either with a thumb or the handle of a wooden spoon.

  6. Fill each indentation with jam.

  7. Bake 15-20 minutes or until lightly browned.

  8. Cool thoroughly on cooling racks and store in an airtight container.
