Sweet Guava & Gorgonzola Thumbprint Cookies

Main Ingredient: Flour

Yield: 28 cookies

Recipe courtesy of Naylet LaRochelle , Bronze Tier Prize Winner in the 2014 Salemville® “How Do You Blue” recipe contest

Ingredients

  • 1 c. butter, room temperature
  • 1/2 c. powdered sugar
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1-1/2 cups sliced almonds, crushed
  • 8 ounces guava paste (about 3/4 c.)
  • 2 tablespoons cream
  • 2/3 c. Salemville® gorgonzola, crumbled

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350° F. Line a large baking sheet with non-stick foil or parchment paper; set aside.
  2. In a large bowl using a hand mixer or stand up mixer, beat butter until light and fluffy. Add powdered sugar and vanilla; beat until combined. Add flour; stir until combined and a soft dough is formed. Shape dough into 1-1/4 inch balls. Roll each ball in crushed almonds. Place each about 2 inches apart on baking sheet. Using thumb or index finger, make an indentation in center of each. Refrigerate 3 to 4 minutes. Bake 12 minutes; remove from oven and set aside to cool.
  3. Meanwhile, in a microwavable bowl, add guava paste and cream. Microwave in 30 second intervals, stirring in between each, until melted and smooth.
  4. Using a teaspoon, carefully press indentation in center again if needed. Fill each center with guava mixture and sprinkle with gorgonzola. Return to oven; bake 5 to 6 minutes longer until cookies are lightly browned.

NOTE:

  1. If guava paste is unavailable in your local supermarket, you can substitute with your favorite preserves or jam.
