🤩Lemon Thumbprint Cookies Recipe👍


🔹1 cup unsalted butter, softened

🔹½ cup granulated sugar

🔹2 large egg yolks

🔹1 Tbsp grated lemon zest

🔹1 Tbsp fresh lemon juice

🔹½ tsp kosher salt

🔹2 ½ cup all-purpose flour

🔹1 cup Lemon Curd, or store-bought


🔸Heat oven to 350 degrees.

🔸Line two half-sheet-pan baking sheets with parchment or nonstick liners.

🔸Beat butter and sugar in a large bowl with mixer until well blended.

🔸Beat in yolks, lemon zest, lemon juice, and salt.

🔸Beat in flour just until moist clumps form. Gather dough together in bowl to bind.

🔸Shape scant tablespoons of dough into 1-inch balls.

🔸Place balls on prepared sheets, spacing them 1 inch apart.

🔸Using a floured finger or something that will give a good round shape (I used the back of a small pestle), make a deep indentation in center of each ball.

🔸Bake cookies until firm and lightly golden on bottom, about 18 to 20 minutes.

🔸Remove cookies from oven and immediately fill indentations with curd.

🔸Return to oven and bake 2 minutes longer to set curd.

🔸Bake remaining cookies. Lightly dust edges with confectioners’ sugar before serving.
