Orange Chamomile Jam Thumbprint Cookies

Within the aromatic confines of the House of Relish, a batch of Orange Chamomile Jam Thumbprint Cookies emerged from the depths of the main kitchen oven. These delicate treats, with their golden crust and jewel-like centers, held a special place in Lord Jamlin’s heart. Each cookie bore a secret indentation, filled with the ethereal blend of orange and chamomile jam. The recipe, passed down through generations, was whispered only to those deemed worthy of the House’s culinary secrets. As Lord Jamlin indulged in these tantalizing morsels, his eyes sparkled with a mixture of nostalgia and appreciation, savoring not only the delightful flavors but also the hidden stories woven into every crumb. The Orange Chamomile Jam Thumbprint Cookies became a token of love, reminding him of the cherished mysteries and enduring traditions that resided within the House of Relish.



1 cup unsalted butter, softened

1/2 cup granulated sugar

2 cups all-purpose flour

1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

1/4 teaspoon salt

1/2 cup orange chamomile jam



  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C) and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, cream together the softened butter and granulated sugar until light and fluffy.
  3. Add the vanilla extract and salt to the butter-sugar mixture, and mix well to combine.
  4. Gradually add the flour to the mixture, mixing until a soft dough forms. Be careful not to overmix.
  5. Roll the dough into small balls, approximately 1 inch in diameter, and place them on the prepared baking sheet, leaving some space between each cookie.
  6. Gently press your thumb or the back of a small spoon into the center of each dough ball, creating an indentation.
  7. Spoon approximately 1/2 teaspoon of the orange chamomile jam into each indentation, filling it up.
  8. Bake the cookies in the preheated oven for about 12-15 minutes, or until the edges turn golden brown.
  9. Once baked, remove the cookies from the oven and let them cool on the baking sheet for a few minutes. Then transfer them to a wire rack to cool completely.
  10. Serve the Orange Chamomile Jam Thumbprint Cookies at room temperature and enjoy their delicate buttery texture and fruity jam-filled centers.


These delightful cookies are perfect for tea time or as a sweet treat for any occasion. The combination of orange and chamomile in the jam adds a unique and aromatic twist to these classic thumbprint cookies.
