3/4 Cup Coconut Sugar
1 Cup Unsalted European Butter (such as Kerrygold)
1 Large Egg
2 tsp Vanilla Extract
1/4 tsp baking soda
1 tsp Kosher Salt
2 1/4 Cups AP Flour


  1. Combine unsalted butter and coconut sugar in a mixing bowl and cream together until light and fluffy (2-3 minutes).
  2. Add the egg and vanilla to the creamed sugar and butter and beat until combined.
  3. Sift together the baking soda, salt, and flour. Add sifted flour all at once to the creamed mixture and mix on low just until the flour is incorporated.
  4. Using a 2oz ice cram scoop, scoop dough out onto a parchment lined sheet pan. Roll each ball of dough between your hands to create a nice smooth ball and place 2-inches apart.
  5. Using your thumb, press down in the center of each dough ball creating an indentation. Fill indentation with 1/2 tsp of your favorite jam.
  6. Bake at 350° for 14 minutes, rotating the cookies half way. Let cool completely before serving.
