Thumbprint Cookies

What you need: 

2 cups all purpose flour
1/2 cup soy flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
2/3 vegan margarine
1 cup sugar
2 egg replacers (
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 1/2 teaspoons orange zest, divided
2/3 cup powdered sugar
3 tablespoons raspberry preserves

What you do: 

1. Preheat to 350 degrees F. Grease a baking sheet. Mix flours, baking powders and salt; set aside.
2. Cream margarine and sugar, then add egg replacers, vanilla and 1 teaspoon zest. Mix all, then roll dough into balls (about 1 1/2 tablespoons worth of dough) and place on prepared baking sheet.
3. Make an indentation in the middle of each ball (use your thumb, the end of a wooden spoon, etc) about 3/4 the way through. Bake 10- 15 minutes, until the indentation edges are set, then let cookies cool.
4. Mix powdered sugar, 1/2 teaspoon zest and about 2 teaspoons water; drizzle over cooled cookies. Fill indentations with the jelly (about 1/3 teaspoon in each cookie).
These are tasty and look excellent. Use your favorite flavor of jelly for the center.

What does the soy flour do in this recipe?  Could I substitute chickpea flour?  Or just more all purpose flour?


Making this RIGHT NOW!!! :) In the over. The dough was good :)
I did not use soy flour, nor zest.


These are sooo good! I used 2 tbsp of corstarch plus 1/2 tsp baking powder whisked with scant 1/2 cup water and 2 tbsp oil for the 2 egg replacers. I rolled out the dough and used a fluted 3" and 1 1/2" biscuit cutters to make the holes for the jam, I did 1 3" layer, and then a 3" layer with a 1 1/2" hole cut out stacked on top. Thanks for a great recipe!


I have made these cookies twice now.  The first time with the powdered sugar mixture drizzled over, and they were WAY too sweet.  Tonight I made them without, and they were great!  I used sunflower oil, btw, instead of margarine, and raw sugar.  Awesome!
