Thumbprint Cookies 

Scribbled Underline

This classic cookie gets a twist with the addition of coconut, making these Ina Garten thumbprint cookies the perfect little nests to share your favorite jam.

• Butter • Granulated sugar • Vanilla extract • All purpose flour • Kosher salt • Egg • Shredded sweetened    coconut • Favorite jam

In a medium sized bowl whisk together flour and salt. Set aside.

Using a stand mixer with a paddle attachment, cream butter until smooth and fluffy. Add the sugar and cream until combined.

Mix in vanilla.

In batches, mix dry ingredients into wet until fully incorporated and dough starts to come together.

Dump on a floured board and roll together into a flat disk. Wrap in plastic wrap or parchment paper and chill for 30 minutes.

In a small bowl whisk together water and egg to make the egg wash. Place coconut on a dish.

Pinch off approximately 1 ounce of dough, and roll into 1¼-inch balls. Dip each ball into egg wash then roll into shredded coconut.

Place the balls onto a baking sheet and press a light indentation into the top of each ball with your thumb. 

Drop 1 teaspoon of jam into the indentation of the cookies.

Bake at 350ºF for 20 to 25 minutes, or until the coconut is a golden brown.
