Thumbprint Cookies but make them ombré

I recently saw a picture of these beautiful cookies. They were shaken with fruit powder and the variations made them appear to be ombré. I wanted to make these cookies with a more pure fruit flavor and to experiment with different powders and jam combinations. I started by adding the fruit powder in to the batter.

The first result was a beautiful deep berry color that I filled with wild blueberry  and strawberry jams. I am excited to try new colors and flavors. I think my next one is mango fruit powder with apricot jam. I am adding like for a fruit powder selection to my amazon storefront. This is way easier than pulverizing and sifting freeze-dried fruit. What combination do you want to see new?

  • 2-3/4 Cups All-Purpose Flour

    Whisk together flour fruit powder and salt. Set aside.
    In the bowl of a stand-up mixer, fitted with paddle attachment, cream together butter and sugars. Be sure to scrape down.
    Add in vanilla, and egg yolks.
  • On slow speed gradually add flour mixture. Do not over mix.
    Using a small ice cream scoop or a tablespoon, measure out potions and roll in small balls.
    I like to use the back of a measuring teaspoon to make depressions in each cookie.
    Bake for 5 minutes then rotate and bake for another 5 minutes.
  • When cookies come out of oven, carefully drop 1/2 teaspoon of jam in to each cookie then let cool completely.
