Strawberry Nutella Thumbprint cookies.

Today ( 12th of July) is my hubby's work anniversary. I wanted to prepare something special for him. So was pondering over for nice recipes in the Net as well as in FB. My search ended in one of the foodie grps, where I saw the recipe for Strawberry cookies. Since I have'nt tried baking cookies, thght why not try these. so started preparing them and the end result was quite satisfying to all of us. 

So here goes the ingredients list and the procedure.

Ingredients:

APF / Maida                                    – 1.5 - 2 cups
Baking powder                                – ½ Tsp
Salt                                               – A pinch
Unsalted butter                               – 4 Tblsp (Room Temperature)
Powdered white sugar                     – 7 - 10 Tbslp
Vanilla essence                                – 1 Tsp
Strawberry puree                            -  3-4 tblsp
Nutella/ Any Jam of your choice       -  For filling

The Strawberries need to be crushed finely. The consistency shld not be too watery or running. 

Procedure:

First sift the dry ingredients together and keep it aside. Then in a bowl mix the butter and sugar and beat until creamy or till they combine together. Now add the vanilla essence and the starwberry puree and mix again till the blend well. Now mix this batter with the dry ingredients. Mix well and refrigerate the dough or abt 30 mins to 1 hr.

Preheat the oven to 350 F / 175 C. Take out the cookie dough from fridge. Grease your palms with oil or butter and make small balls of the dough. Line the cookie tray with parchment paper. Place the cookie balls in the tray one by one and press them gently. Using your thumb or a small oil spoon, make a small hole in the middle of the cookies. If the butter seems to be melting, refrigerate them again for another 15 - 20 mins. 

Bake the cookies for abt 12 mins or till the bottom starts turning brown. But dnt bake them beyond 12 mins. These cookies will continue to cook after being taken out. Again, using the spoon, make a hole in the middle.
Once the cookies completely cool off, fill in Nutella or any jam of your choice.

Yummy Strawberry Nutella cookies are ready to be chewed on.
