Cherry Thumbprint Cookies
Most of us like to enjoy an occasional treat. You can experiment with sweetener options for healthier versions.
1 C. vegan butter
1/2 C. sugar
2 C. flour
1 tsp. vanilla
1 can cherry pie filling or your own thickened cherries (be creative using other fruits like blueberries, apricots etc.)
Glaze is optional
1 C. powered sugar
1-2 tsp. coconut milk
Preheat oven to 375f.
Cream together the vegan butter, sugar and vanilla. Mix in flour until dough is crumbly then form into a ball. Refrigerate until firm.
Seperate dough into 1 inch balls and place on parchment lined cookie sheet. Squash with a spoon to make the “thumbprint” and fill with your fruit filling.
Bake for 15 minutes or until edges begin to brown.
Make a thick glaze with coconut milk and powered sugar. Drizzle over cookies after they have cooled for about 15 minutes.
