Cookies are one of my favorite things to make for loved ones and my special fella's favorite are thumbprint cookies. He says they're little bites of happiness. So for this round I've made some special Thumbprint Cookies of Love because the only thing better than a love token for Valentines Day is a delicious love token . I hope you dig them.

Step 1: What You'll Need

Tools:
Stand Mixer with paddle or equivalent
Soft Spatula for bowl scraping
Hard spatula for gently lifting love cookies from sheet 
Cookie Sheets
Cooling Rack
Sil-Pats optional, keep cookie sheet clean and better for the environment than foil or parchment

Ingredients:
1 cup / 2 Sticks Butter, room temperature 
*2 eggs
2/3 cup sugar
**Vanilla Extract
1 tsp salt
2 cups all purpose flour
Your favorite Jam, I used Bonne Maman Raspberry 

Ingredients Metric:
240g cup Butter, room temperature
*2 eggs
130g  sugar
**Vanilla Extract
2.5ml tsp salt
240g  all purpose flour
Your favorite Jam, I used Bonne Maman Raspberry

* For a more shortbread texture use egg yolks only. 
**This amount varies, check out step 5 for more info. 

Step 2: Gettin Hot in Here!

Preheat oven to 350°F / 177°C

Step 4: Sugar me!

Add the sugar and mix till you get an even blend. 

Again use the soft spatula to scrape the bowl and paddle for the next step.

Step 5: Vanilla Time!

Typically this recipe calls for 1tsp / 5ml but I've never liked rules and vanilla extract is so tasty. I usually just pour some in till I'm happy my guess is that its about 3 tsp / 15 ml. 

Mix the vanilla extract in well and get that spatula back out and scrape the bowl and paddle for the next step.

Step 6: One Egg, Two Egg
