Elderflower Pluot Thumbprint Cookies
Quite possibly one of the easiest festive cookies! Adapted from Delish.com
1 3/4 cups All purpose flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp kosher salt
3/4 cup (1 1/2 sticks) butter, softened
1/2 cup sugar
1 large egg
1 tsp pure vanilla extract
1/3 cup Elderflower Pluot Preserves
Preheat oven to 350º and line two baking sheets with parchment. In a large bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, and salt.
In another bowl, beat butter and sugar until pale and fluffy, about 3 minutes. Beat in egg and vanilla, then add dry ingredients in two batches until incorporated.
Using a small cookie scoop, scoop 1” balls onto prepared baking sheets. Press a thumbprint into center of each ball, 1/2” deep. Fill with a small spoonful of jam.
Bake until edges of cookies are golden, 13 to 14 minutes. Cool on baking sheets before serving.
