These thumbprint cookies are something I would often make with my mum when I was growing up. They are not something I make very often now, but when I do, I really enjoy them and they just bring back me right back to my childhood and my mum’s kitchen.

These are great fun to make with kids as they are not hugely complicated and do not have many ingredients. You can also swap the coconut in these for an extra 50g of flour, but I love them with coconut,

Preheat your oven to 180°C

In a mixing bowl, cream together the butter and sugar, and then mix in the egg.

Add the flour, baking powder and coconut to the mix and stir together to mix well until it forms a dough like consistency.

Grease and line a baking tray.

Take tablespoons of the mixture and roll into balls and flatten in to baking sheet, making sure there is about an inch gap in between cookies.

Then with your finger or the end of a wooden spoon handle, make a small well in the centre of each cookie.

Add a teaspoon of jam into the well of each cookie.

Place the cookies into the oven for 15-20 minutes , or until golden brown and cooked.
