Blueberry Lemon Ginger Thumbprint Cookies

Happy First Day of Spring!

We can not think of a more delightful way to celebrate spring, than by simply finding a sunny spot to curl up with a hot cup of tea and a few thumbprint cookies. A lemony ginger thumbprint cookie is baked and then filled with a blueberry lemon ginger filling to create a one of a kind flavor combination that are literally bursting with the flavors of spring.

Ingredients

Cookies:
1 cup Butter, softened
1/2 cup Sugar
2 large Eggs
2 Tbsp. Lemon zest
2 tsp. Grated ginger
3 Tbsp. Lemon juice
1/2 tsp. Salt
2-1/2 cups Flour

Filling:
1 jar Robert Rothschild Farm Blueberry Lemon Ginger Dip
2 Tbsp. Cornstarch
2 Tbsp. Water

 

Instructions

Cookies:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In the bowl of an electric mixer, cream together butter and sugar. Stir in eggs, lemon zest, grated ginger, lemon juice and salt. Add flour and mix until just combined. Using a medium cookie scoop, roll dough into balls and place on parchment or silicone mat lined baking sheet. Using your thumb, make an indentation in the middle of each dough ball. Bake cookies until lightly golden, about 18 – 20 minutes.

Filling:
Meanwhile, in a small saucepan over medium-low heat, add dip and bring to simmer. In a small bowl, whisk together water and cornstarch. Whisk into dip until thickened. Fill indentations of cookies with thickened dip and bake for two additional minutes until set.
