Thumbprint/Bird's Nest Cookies

These cookies are my all time favorite and such a tasty treat!

What you'll need...

1 cup ground almonds
1 cup sweetened coconut
2 cups flour
1 1/4 cup butter, room temperature
1/2 cup white sugar
2 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 cup confectioners sugar

About a cup of your favorite jam.

How to...

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F. Prepare a cookie sheet with parchment paper.

Cream the sugar, butter, and vanilla together until fluffy. Then gradually add the almonds, coconut, and flour.
Form the dough into small balls then use your finger or the end of a wooden spoon to create a small hole. Be sure not to go all the way through the dough to the pan.

Bake for 16-18 minutes.  While your cookies are cooling bring the jam to a gentle boil. Once the cookies are slightly cooled dust with confectioners sugar, then fill the holes with jam and let cool to room temperature before eating! ENJOY! :)
