Coconut-Raspberry Thumbprints

  • ACTIVE: 30 MIN
  • TOTAL TIME: 1 HR 15 MIN
  • SERVINGS: 6 1/2 dozen cookies
  • MAKE-AHEAD

Use a spoon or your thumb to make a dent for the raspberry-jam filling.

  1. 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  2. 3/4 cup shredded unsweetened coconut
  3. 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  4. 1/2 teaspoon salt
  5. 2 sticks (1/2 pound) unsalted butter, softened
  6. 1 1/4 cups sugar
  7. 1 large egg yolk
  8. 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  9. Raspberry jam
  1. In a medium bowl, whisk the flour with the coconut, baking soda and salt. In a standing electric mixer fitted with a paddle, or using a hand mixer in a large bowl, beat the butter with the sugar at medium speed until light and fluffy, about 3 minutes. Beat in the egg yolk and vanilla, scraping the side and bottom of the bowl. Beat in the dry ingredients at medium-low speed. Wrap the dough in plastic and refrigerate for 15 minutes.
  2. Preheat the oven to 350°. Position the racks in the upper and lower thirds of the oven. Roll the dough into 1-inch balls and bake for 14 minutes. Make a dent in the cookies; fill with jam and bake for about 10 minutes. Let the cookies cool on the sheets for 5 minutes, then transfer to racks to cool completely.
Make Ahead The cookie dough can be wrapped in plastic and aluminum foil and refrigerated for up to 1 week or frozen for up to 1 month. Thaw in the refrigerator before using. The baked cookies can be stored in an airtight container for up to 1 week or wrapped in plastic and foil and frozen for up to 1 month.
