The preparation is quite simple and straight forward: You need one bowl where you cream the butter and sugar. Add one egg. Make sure the egg is roughly at the same temperature as butter.
Add a pinch of salt.
The almond flavoring is optional so if you don’t have one don’t worry. But if you do, I recommend using it! The cookies will smell amazing after adding a few drops in the mixture.
Once you have added the flour (sifted) form it into dough and chill in the fridge!
Forming balls out of the dough is easy-peasy! Get your kids help you. I am sure they will enjoy it! Rolling them in caster sugar is optional. It won’t change their taste much. If you are after reducing sugar intake, then this is the way to go! For the filling I used Homemade Lemon Curd. You can use jam instead but lemon curd turns these cookies into heavenly bites!
I also prefer filling thumbprint cookies with lemon curd before baking. It changes its taste slightly and I like it.
I loved that the cookies were more than just a holder of the sweet filling. They weren’t hard as a rock or dry. They were nice, tender and a little flaky.
