Welcome back to another post about my new favorite recipe book!! This time? Really not sure how to pronounce that word in Swedish so I’m just gonna call them how I can, thumbprint cookies.
These are super simple cookies, spiced with anise and dolloped with a berry jam. I just love what the subtle spice adds to the cookie.
As recommended in the cookbook, these were made with Queen’s Jam, a raspberry and blueberry jam, which was also found in this book. I decided that these were going to be a thank you treat to the nurses at the clinical facility where I just finished my most recent rotation. Hopefully they enjoy them as much as I do!
I was spoiled enough to always have homemade jam growing up and I feel I need to keep the tradition going. It was my first time making jam and it turned out a tad too thick. But it still tastes wonderful on top of these cookies (and slathered on some toast with butter). I’m writing this as I take my own fika after a long clinical day and really wish I had one of these with me.
