Vegan Thumbprint Cookies with Pear Dark Chocolate Jam featuring Alevri Marketplace


Y'all vegans ready for cookie season? This week we teamed up with Alevri Marketplace to create vegan thumbprint cookies filled with our Pear Dark Chocolate + Cinnamon Jam


To create the Vegan Thumbprint Cookies you need:

  • 1 cup (2 sticks) of vegan buttery sticks, room temperature
  • 2/3 cup granulated sugar, vegan friendly
  • 1 egg replacer; we used energy egg replacer and mixed 1 1/2 ts replacer with 2 tb of water
  • 1 ts vanilla extract
  • 2 1/4 cups of all-purpose flour
  • 1 jar of Pear Dark Chocolate Cinnamon Jam

Materials: Hand or stand mixer, spoon, baking sheet


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat.
  2. Beat together vegan butter and sugar with an electric mixer on medium-high speed until light and fluffy, about 2 to 3 minutes.
  3. Whisk together egg replacer according to brand’s instructions; then beat “egg” and vanilla extract into the butter and sugar mixture. Add flour, mix until incorporated and dough forms a ball.
  4. Form dough into 1-inch balls and arrange on the prepared baking sheet. Flatten balls slightly with your thumb or the back of a small spoon, leaving an indentation in the center.
  5. Bake cookies for 8 to 10 minutes or until bottoms are just barely golden. Remove baking sheet from oven. If indentations look shallow, further define them with the back of a spoon and then fill each with approximately 1/2 teaspoon of jam.
  6. Bake for an additional 3 to 4 minutes, or until jam melts slightly and edges of cookies are lightly golden. Transfer cookies to wire racks to cool.
  7. Enjoy!
