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.
Recipe is from Chef Mark Anthony
