Thumbprint Cookies with Tiptree Christmas Preserve

Thumbprint cookies are a delicious holiday classic with their buttery shortbread base and warm jam center. It's simple and easy to make and works great for holiday gifts, cookie swaps, or holiday get-togethers. This recipe uses Tiptree Christmas Preserve for the filling, but it can easily be substituted with your choice of any Tiptree flavor.

Tiptree Christmas Preserve has a strong and fruity flavor, accompanied by the smell of cinnamon. It is completely unique, made of the original exquisite combination of red currants, Victoria and Damson plums, Sultana raisins, and a secret blend of spices. This was made from fresh hand-picked fruit grown on Tiptree’s farm in the UK.
