Paleo Thumbprint Cookies

After making my Paleo Raspberry Jam the other day, I decided to use a little of it to make Paleo Thumbprint Cookies.  This was a great success.  The base of the cookie dough is made with mixed nut butter from Trader Joe’s. I found the consistency of it a little loose but the flavor is great!!  It was perfect for these cookies.


To make these sturdy enough I used almond flour and went ahead with basic cookie ingredients:  coconut sugar, egg, salt.  You know what I mean, right?

Anyway, I also used a little of the dough to make “peanut butter” type cookies using the mixed nut butter WHICH HAS NO PEANUTS!  They are pretty good too, but the jam really makes these PaleoThumbprint Cookies fruity and slightly sweet.  The nice chewy texture of the baked cookie goes perfectly with the jam!
