How to Store Thumbprint Cookies

Allow the thumbprint cookies to cool completely before storage. Store the cookies in an airtight container for up to one week at room temperature.

Can You Freeze Thumbprint Cookies?

Yes, you can freeze thumbprint cookies — but it’s best to freeze them before filling them with jam. Make and par-bake the dough, then use your thumb to press an indent into each puffed cookie. Once you’ve made the indent, stop!

Allow them to cool completely, then arrange the unfilled cookies on a baking sheet. Cover and freeze for at least a few hours or up to overnight. Transfer the now-frozen cookies to zip-top bags or another freezer-safe container. Freeze for up to two months and thaw in the refrigerator before following the rest of the recipe.

Allrecipes Community Tips and Praise

“I used Irish butter instead of traditional butter, and I used black raspberry and strawberry flavored jams for the filling,” according to Sarah. “These are my new favorite, everyone was raving over them at my cookie baking party.”

“My husband said it is his new favorite cookie,” says stacey. I am allergic to nuts, so I supplemented walnuts with toasted coconut and raspberry preserves as filler. They turned out amazing!”

“Great recipe,” raves GIMLIEN. “After making these a few times I tinkered with the recipe a bit. One time I left off the walnuts and instead of jam, I placed a chocolate kiss in the thumbprint.”
