Syltgrottor (Jam Thumbprint Cookies)

Syltgrottor (Jam Thumbprint Cookies)

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.
