It’s time to bring out all the baking supplies just in time for the holiday season. Every single year I look forward to holiday baking with my family because we’ll make all sorts of sweets, from shortbread cookies to puppy chow. But what I love even more than dreaming up desserts is getting together with friends and doing an exchange.
This year, I wanted to try something different so I decided to make some classic Thumbprint Cookies using chia seed jam. These oatmeal cookies are soft and chewy with a delicious raspberry chia seed jam filling. One of the best parts about this recipe? The jam only requires two simple ingredients without the use of any additives or coloring. They make for a great morning snack or an afternoon treat with a cup of warm coffee or tea not only because they're easy to make but are also very on brand for the holiday season.
Adding two scoops of Vital Proteins Collagen Peptides also sets this holiday cookie recipe apart. The hydrolyzed collagen powder helps support healthy hair skin, nails and joints**. Plus, they are odorless, flavorless and easily soluble in hot liquids, making them a versatile ingredient for any sweet and savory recipe.
Yields 8 cookies
