Every since I made my Sunflower Butter Brownie Bites, I’ve been wanting to try another thumbprint cookie. They’re just so light, fluffy, and super cute! In addition, I love coming up with new baked-goods recipes. I mean, who doesn’t love baked goods, right? Plus, my family has been asking for a recipe that actually contains some sugar. So I happily obliged, creating these Cashew Butter Thumbprint cookies. But the twist? They’re made three different ways!
Cashew Butter Thumbprint Cookies: Strawberries
This might seem a little weird to some of you. Why on earth would you put fruit in a thumbprint cookie, right? Well, if you think about it, people put jam in thumbprint cookies all the time! I just decided to keep my strawberries whole and roll them in a little coconut sugar. Think of this version of these cashew butter thumbprint cookies as a sweeter, tastier PB&J. Or, I guess, a CB&J.
Cashew Butter Thumbprint Cookies: Chocolate
If you know me at all, you know I’m a bit of a chocolate addict. Like I even put it in my “coffee”, or rather, my Rasa adaptogenic herbal koffee (click here for discount), to make my Caffeine Free Herbal Mocha Latte. I start and end my days with a little chocolate and honestly, I wouldn’t have it any other way. So of course, I had to make one of the versions of these cookies with chocolate. I mean, who doesn’t love a good chocolate, nut butter combo, right? The secret to this chocolate filling is to melt the dark chocolate chips with a little bit of coconut oil. It makes it way smoother and a little softer.
Cashew Butter Thumbprint Cookies: Strawberries + Chocolate
Have you ever had a chocolate covered strawberry? Those things are insane! It’s just such a great combo. Almost as good as the chocolate and nut butter combo. So it’s only logical to combine all three of these things, right? Simply put a strawberry in the thumbprint before the cookies are finished baking, and bam! You have a tasty, slightly caramelized sweet treat. Drizzle a little chocolate on top of that, and you have yourself a game changer!
