Fig 'n' Flax Thumbprint Cookies
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.
Make Ahead Tip: Store in an airtight container for up to 5 days. Or bake with no preserves and reduce baking time to 12 to 14 minutes; freeze the unfilled cookies for up to 3 months. Defrost at room temperature before filling with preserves.
Ingredient Notes: Look for ground flaxseeds (or flaxmeal) in the natural-foods section of large supermarkets or in natural-foods stores. Store in the refrigerator or freezer.
