Fig ’n’ Flax Thumbprint Cookies

November/December 2009

Your rating: None Average: 4.2 (61 votes)

We love how the ground flax adds a nutty flavor and the brown sugar caramelizes on the outside of these thumbprint cookies. Fig preserves make this cookie special; other fruit preserves could be used as well.



READER'S COMMENT:
"I loved these - really came out perfectly - one question for anyone - would it work as well to substitute a festive sanding sugar in place of the brown sugar in the final step? "

I made these for Christmas gifts, and everyone loved them. I continued to make batch after batch becasue they disappeared from the kitchen. They are a little time intensive but very worth it. It is a small batch recipe, so double, triple, or quadruple it. I even used apricot preserves on some; they were great too, but not the same unique and wonderful flavor as those with the fig preserves.

These are GREAT cookies - my husband said it's like a fruit cobbler with every bite!

I used fresh persimmon - it gelled nicely and tasted great!

I found the dipping process extremely messy, and am wondering if this step is necessary? Also, I made exactly 2 1/2 dozen cookies and found that there was a lot of the flax/brown sugar mixture leftover.
