Gluten Free Thumbprint Cookies

My weekly gluten-free baking experiments have been continuing, but I keep forgetting to take photos and remember the sources of the recipes I have been using. I have also had a couple of huge fails too, one involving ginger kisses that I forgot to add baking powder to the GF flour mix. Ginger Crisps anyone? Luckily they were still delicious and my ever-gracious Sis-in-law was still impressed.

These thumbprint cookies were my latest experiment. SUCCESS!
4 ingredients, not too sweet and super quick to make.

Gluten Free Thumbprint Cookies (Vegan)

1 1/4 cup of Ground Almonds
3 T Oil (the original recipe said coconut oil but I used olive oil and they still worked and tasted fine)
1 1/2 T Maple Syrup
1/4 cup approx Jam (any flavour goes here! My fave is raspberry)

Oven @ 180 degrees.
Mix together the almonds, oil and maple syrup and chill mixture for 30min.
Divide the mixture into 15 balls (they are pretty small!) and put on a lined baking sheet.
Press into the middle of each ball with your thumb to make a dent and re-shape the edges if desired.
Fill the thumb-dents with a small amount of jam.
Bake for around 10 minutes but keep an eye on them as my oven had a hissy fit and decided to burn the bottom of the cookies.
Leave to harden then scoff them back! They are bite sized so this batch might disappear fast!
