Who doesn’t love thumbprint cookies? Make the cookie out of poppy seed shortbread and you’ve elevated the standard thumbprint cookie to a whole new level.
I was looking for a recipe that was simple and delivered a cookie to my mouth in the shortest possible time. This hit the spot. I had the dough made in less than 10 minutes and was eating warm cookies about 20 minutes later.
My only snag was that I overestimated the amount of jam I had in the fridge. I ended up filling about half of the cookies with raspberry jam. The other half got filled with nutella and some chocolate ganache I had in the fridge. By far, the raspberry jam was the best. With two sticks of butter, these cookies are quite rich, so the tartness of the jam was very refreshing.
