the Squarespace forsponsoring this video I’m finallybuilding my website after years ofpromising that’s what it tookanyway we’ll talk about it at the endall right so we’re making a holidayfavorite thumbprint cookies a K fromwhat I this is my best pronunciation allright I’m already ready for the commentsto blow me away hell it Helen gropedthank youSwedish people come on just destroy melet’s go I used to get these every yearmy grandma was always the most excitingtime because I loved thumbprint cookiesreminder that I’m on tick-tock andInstagram all the links are in thedescription thank you that is a plug foreverybody and I hope you appreciate itso with all that said let’s make thisshall we so this is a super simplerecipe sometimes short and easy is whatyou want using electric beaters you’regonna beat together two thirds of a cupof 160 grams of unsalted softened butterbig soft beat that together on highspeed with half a cup or 115 grams ofgranulated sugar and just beat that biguntil it starts to get a little creamyabout two to three minutes then beat in1 room temperature egg and 2 teaspoonsor 10 grams of vanilla extract beatagain until nice and creamy then in aseparate bowl you’re gonna combineone-and-a-half cups are 218 grams ofall-purpose flour with half a teaspoonor 1 gram of fine sea salt just whiskthat together get it evenly incorporatedthose of you who are asking kind ofwhisk this is it’s called a Scandinavianwhipper and there will be a link for itin the description so I guesstechnically it’s for whipping but I dowhat I want cause a pirate is free addyour flour mixture to the butter mixtureand just fold and fold and fold until itcomes together and forms a beautifullysilky dough by kissing it should be easyenough to handle by hand now but if notyou can always just toss it in thefridge for 30 minutes before rollinginto balls so now that we’ve got ourdough we need to decide what we want toroll our balls in yepno really I’ve got four options for youcan roll it into crushed toasted nutslike hazelnuts like I’ve got hereyou can roll it in shredded coconut oryou could rollraw sugar a K Demerara sugar or last youcould just leave it plain or potentiallyeven dust it with powdered sugar nextyou’re gonna form your dough into 1-inchballs make sure to make sure that thereis even as possible you’ll get about twodozen out of this recipe once you shapeyour ball immediately roll it intowhatever you’re coating of choices thenplace it on a baking sheet lined withparchment paper make sure that you giveit at least an inch of space in betweeneach cookie I would say an inch and ahalf will be better I probably put theselittle close together in my opinion nowonce you clear your baking sheets linedwith balls that are coated in all sortsof stuff this is one hell of videoyou’re then gonna take a teaspoonmeasure or your thumb and press a smallintention in every single ball aka thethumbprint part then take your bakingsheet and place it in your refrigeratorfor 30 minutes to chill while chillingpre-heat your oven to 375 degreesFahrenheit or 190 degrees Celsiusonce they’ve chilled go straight fromthe fridge to the oven and pop them inthere for about 10 to 15 minutes oruntil lightly golden now you will noticethat the indentions may pop up if theydo use a teaspoon measure or some sortof spoon to push them back down and keepthem indention there a lot of peoplelike to put Jam there so this doesn’thappen but I actually like to fill mineafterwards so I have more options we’lltalk about that a second what those aredone baking pull them out and place themon a wire rack to cool now we can talkabout fillingsnow you can fill these with just aboutanything you want you can use achocolate ganache you can use any jamthat you want now I’m not gonna talkabout how to make a jam because Ialready have a video for that which willbe in the link of the description aswell you can make a lemon curd whichI’ll show you how to make so basicallyto make a super simple lemon curd you’rejust gonna take half a cup or 118millilitres of fresh lemon juiceactually used Meyer lemon juice for thisand you’re gonna place it on a mediumsized pot along with one tablespoon orfour grams of finely chopped lemon zesthalf a cup or 115 grams of granulatedsugar three whole eggs and half a cup or115 grams of cold unsalted butter placethat over medium-low heat and just keepstirring constantly do not stop and it’sand there’s suddenly just gonna hit thisextra thick miss and once it gets niceand thick understand that it’s gonna geteven thicker as it cools so go ahead andpull that out and strain it into acontainer ideally over an ice bath tocool while it’s cooling I like to dropin a bag or two of chamomile tea justgive it some oomph you know chamomileMeyer lemon curd fancy that sounds fancyand lastly you could just make it verysimple icing which is just two cups or246 grams of powdered sugar and thenyou’ll justto add a little bit of milk a tablespoonor 14 milliliters at a time until itreaches the desired consistency you candiet colors if you want to be fancy youknow it’s what my family used to do whenI was a kid so I just do it for anostalgia
