Almond Thumbprint Cookies w/ Orange Cardamom Jam

Almond Thumbprint Cookies w/ Orange Cardamom Jam {Vegan} by Faring Well

DIY: Do it yourself. Grow an herb garden in your windowsill, make nut milk from scratch, brew your own kombucha. Know every little thing that goes into your body. Get to know the earth, what the cycle of life looks like for your food, and how to take simple ingredients and turn them into more complex food items. This isn’t a fad, its been done for ages. If anything, the “fad” is only recent, and it is the opposite of what we’ve been doing for thousands of years. Sadly, the new trend is not knowing where your food came from, how it was made, or the makers behind it all. It’s scary.

Being a big advocate for making everything from scratch, I once found myself in the position of not having time for anything else. I was constantly slaving away in the kitchen or the garden, determined to do it all solo. I eventually had to cave and admit to myself I couldn’t do everything on my own. This is when I turned to farmers markets and places that sold goods by local artisans to help take a bit off my plate, and I discovered something I wasn’t expecting. I found more joy. Of course there was joy in making certain routine items from scratch myself (nut butters and nut milks) but there was even more joy to be had in supporting others who made small batch items (using ingredients I would use myself) of things I needed but didn’t have the time or energy to make on a regular basis (jams, sauces, breads). I also got to connect with a vibrant community of like-minded people, seeking to better their health and others through their specialty food items. I got to support them. It felt amazing.

This is the reason I love Hatchery. Some of you may already know who they are, and for some this may be news (good news). They are an incredible company centered around supporting makers of specialty small batch items around the country. Its like going to your local artisans market, but for every town – in every state. You get to know the story behind the person (or people) making each product, the ingredients it is comprised of, and even recommended recipes for pairing. You still gain the satisfaction of knowing what went into your food, without having to prepare every piece of it yourself. Thankfully Amisha of JAM LAB came to my rescue (through Hatchery) when I needed a jam for these festive cookies I have for you today. Jam is a tough one for me – both to make, and to legitimize buying. I want the fruit used to be the sweetest, ripest of its kind. I want there to be minimal ingredients, minimal sugar, and for it to be completely organic. I want whoever made the jam to get their ingredients locally. And the best part, Amisha wants all of the same things. Her gorgeous and drool-worthy orange cardamom jam that I use here meets all of my reqirments, and it honestly one of the best jams I have ever tasted in my life. You can call me a jam snob (if that is a thing?), and I just can’t get over how naturally sweet and flavorful Amisha’s jam is – its unreal. There might be a tablespoon left to scrape onto one last piece of toast this week, but that is all that lasted through the weekend. You can tell it is made from the finest organic oranges in her neck of the woods – northern California. The little flecks of cardamom add this great depth of flavor – and look oh so pretty floating throughout the golden-y jam. I’m so grateful for people like Amisha running the JAM LAB to save me when I just can’t find the time to figure out how to make something this stellar from scratch. And for Hatchery for bringing her to me, further shrinking the world we live in and connecting us with people who are harvesting and creating locally – but sharing nationally.

I get some weird satisfaction from squashing a perfectly round dough ball with my thumb to create the glorious divet that makes the thumbprint cookie. Maybe its because I know the yumminess that is about to get nestled inside, but most likely it’s the little kid inside of me that also loves stomping through her sand castles on the beach. Destruction. Or in this case, perfection through destruction (see what I did there?). These almond thumbprints are everything I want in a jam filled cookie. They are sweet, but not too sweet, letting the jam shine in the center. They are soft, nutty, and have the melt-in-your-mouth effect that makes them irresistible. Filled with the jam of my dreams that I talk about above – orange cardamom. It pairs so perfectly with this cookie and brings in my favorite fruit of the (soon to be) season – winter citrus. Goodness if I didn’t make almost six batches of these last week. I promise you’ll be a hit at your cookie swap party this year if you choose to whip these babies up. Or a hit with yourself and your couch if you decide one batch is meant just for yours truly (I almost insist you make one as so). I hope you are having the sweetest time with your holiday baking, and enjoying a few greens in between.

See below the recipe for an amazing giveaway I’m doing this week with Hatchery – hip hip!

Be sure to follow me on Instagram and tag photos you post of my recipes with #FWmakers so I can see!

Makes 8 cookies.

1/4 cup creamy, salted natural almond butter*
1/4 cup pure maple syrup
1 tablespoon refined coconut oil, melted
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 cup whole spelt flour
1/2 cup oat flour
8 teaspoons orange cardamom jam

*Its necessary that natural nut butter is used in this recipe (not the no-stir kind). I use salted, if you do not then make sure to add 1/4 teaspoon of salt to the batter. You can using whichever nut butter you’d prefer. I’d imagine peanut as well as cashew would be fantastic!

Preheat the oven to 350F. Combine the almond butter, maple syrup, liquid coconut oil, and vanilla in a mixing bowl. Stir well to combine. Add the baking soda and flours. Mix well and let sit for a moment to thicken. Scoop 2 tablespoons worth of dough and roll into a ball for each cookie. Place on a parchment lined baking sheet. Press your thumb into the center of each cookie, creating an indent. Fill each cookie with a teaspoon of jam. Bake for 8 (for softer) to 10 (for firmer) minutes in the oven. The cookies will appear puffy when they first come out of the oven, but once transferred to the counter to cool they will set and the thumbprint will sink down like normal.

Enjoy with a cold glass of almond milk, and keep extra cookies stored in an airtight container on the counter. Best eaten fresh, or within 3 to 4 days.

Ps. Scott and I made these fun ornaments for our tree (pictured above) based off of this tutorial if you’d like to get crafty too!

    That jam sounds YUM! But then again, I love cardamom anything! And I totally lol’d at your joy in “destructing” the balls. I totally feel the same way. ;)

  • Mason December 9, 2015 at 6:11 am

  • Ashley Chew December 9, 2015 at 6:19 am

    These cookies sound amazing! I am such a fan of the cardamom & orange combo. I love adding cardamom & orange zest to chocolate chip cookies!!!
    And wow! The Hatchery is crazy! So much gummies!!! If I had to choose, the two things that really caught my eye were the Tonic 02: Vanilla Chamomile Maple Syrup & the Carrot Cake Jam! I love to try out unique & unexpected flavor combinations & these two looked delicious!!!

  • Lisa December 9, 2015 at 6:33 am

    Wow, so many tasty treats to choose from at Hatchery! But I guess I would start with the orange cardamom jam so I can make this lovely cookies!

  • Chelsea F. December 9, 2015 at 6:35 am

  • Catherine December 9, 2015 at 7:06 am

    I love mustard, so I would love to try some of the fancy flavors in their marketplace! All of the Big Spoon Roasters’ almond butters look delicious though!

  • Nicollette D December 9, 2015 at 7:09 am

    These cookies look amazing! I think I will add them to my holiday baking roster.
    I didn’t know about Hatchery before– thanks for leading me there. They have so many hot sauces– I want to try them all!

  • Erin M December 9, 2015 at 7:17 am

    I would love to try the Bloody Mary Boost! who doesn’t love a delicious homemade bloody Mary mix? I’ve never thought to add ground coffee beans and must try it!

  • Rachel Joy December 9, 2015 at 7:23 am

    Wow Hatchery looks so exciting! I want to try the Ancho Chili & Tamarind Mexican Sauce. Yum!
    I just started following you yesterday through the Boulder Organic soup party. I was following Yellow Table and now have all of these new exciting blogs to check out! Your blog is gorgeous (although the type is really small on my phone! Haha, I sound like an 80 year old! Haha).

  • Julie Hildebrand December 9, 2015 at 7:24 am

    I’d love to try the Strawberry & Chocolate Jam!

  • Lindsay December 9, 2015 at 7:32 am

    Wow, I would love to try the aged balsamic honey

  • Amanda December 9, 2015 at 7:51 am

    Oh my, well everything in the cocktail mixers section looks amazing! I’m especially intrigued by the barrel aged and flavored maple syrups. And the flavored honeys – what great Old Fashions they’d make! The Sweet Hibiscus sea salt would make for an astounding margarita, especially one sweetened with the hibiscus honey. Yum!

  • Tiffany howard December 9, 2015 at 8:01 am

    The fruit extracts would make some pretty delicious buttercreams!

  • Frankie December 9, 2015 at 8:03 am

    I have been looking over their website for over an hour! So many good looking things to choose from. The ground vanilla, coconut butter, and Sicilian spice blend caught my eye. So did the cashew cardamom sprouted almond butter, fig balsamic vinegar, and truffled mustard! Haha! It was hard to pick something. Any of those would be a lovely treat. These cookies look delicious and I love your photography.

  • Heidi Hess December 9, 2015 at 8:45 am

    Please don’t make me choose! This is the most amazing collection of specialty foods I’ve ever seen. I love the Vegan Bundle.

  • Louise December 9, 2015 at 8:49 am

    I look forward to your blog posts every single week! I love the way you word and share your thoughts, not to mention your gorgeous pictures. I can’t wait to try these cookies out, cardamon is so delicious and I especially love it during these colder/darker winter months.
    The Hatchery seems like such a cool concept, I’ll definitely look into it more. If I had to choose something from their “marketplace” right now though, it would be the Chai Spice Nut Butter. Chai and nut butter! There’s no way that wouldn’t be absolutely delicious.
    Thank you so much for all the work you put into this blog!

  • Liana Haven December 9, 2015 at 9:22 am

    First off, thank you for showing me Hatchery! I am already in love, and it may be the downfall of my bank account. Secondly, like you I am also a jam/spread lover but without all of the extra junk in it, whether it is a pumpkin butter or a simple strawberry jam, I am there.
    Here are a few of the things that caught my eye: Bee in Your Bonnet Cinnamon Honey, The Jam Stand Chai Heart Pumpkin Jam, and for something a little more savory Blueberry Basil Jam from Laura Ann’s Jam-on some pork, umm yes please!
    Thank you for the post, I am a huge fan!

  • Ashley December 9, 2015 at 9:46 am

    What an awesome giveaway! All of their jams sound delicious, but especially the blueberry basil!

  • Alycia Hacke December 9, 2015 at 9:48 am

    The bourbon peanut butter is calling my name! Along with all the almond butters. They have some really interesting stuff on there!

  • Samantha P. December 9, 2015 at 10:06 am

    We would love to try the Clean Eats Bundle! It would be a perfect way to start a healthy New Year!

  • Molly December 9, 2015 at 10:13 am

    The cozy cabin bundle!

  • Terri Cole December 9, 2015 at 10:15 am

    Oh my goodness, bourbon pecan peanut butter!

  • Kathryn @ The Scratch Artist December 9, 2015 at 10:19 am

    I love your opening paragraph. Making anything from scratch is my absolute favorite. I love sourcing each item myself and then creating something. I have a collection of vintage fabrics that I sew together to make quilts. Lying under a hand sewn quilt is quite possibly the best thing ever…that and eating chocolate while cuddling under a hand sewn quilt :-) . Like you I have also ventured out and found wonderful producers and formed relationships that are satisfying in their own way. These cookies are so pretty!

  • Elizabeth December 9, 2015 at 10:33 am

    YUM! These look absolutely delicious, and so very cozy! The jam question/dilemma is a big one for me as well, so I would absolutely use the amazing Hatchery opportunity to try out some of the orange cardamom jam you used in this post!

  • Kim December 9, 2015 at 10:54 am

    Nikki’s Coconut Butter in Chocolate Hazelnut Brownie sounds like absolute heaven in a jar!!

  • Michelle @ Hummingbird High December 9, 2015 at 11:10 am

    I LOVE thumbprint cookies, and I’m so impressed you made a vegan version. They look absolutely delightful, and that combination of orange and cardamom is genius!

  • Lauren Gaskill | Making Life Sweet December 9, 2015 at 12:37 pm

    Hatchery sounds awesome! And these cookies … WOW! I love that you used almond butter in the dough and paired it with an orange cardamom jam. So many great flavors here!

  • Carolyn December 9, 2015 at 1:14 pm

    Cinnamon red maca sprouted almond butter!!!!

  • Sabine December 9, 2015 at 1:20 pm

    You read my mind. Thumbprint cookies are on my “must do” baking list. These sound absolutely delicious. I love oranges, specially at this time of the year, so I pick Hatchery’s orange and cardamom marmalade … brings up so many good childhood memories.

  • Linda | The Baker Who Kerns December 9, 2015 at 1:52 pm

    These look thumbprint cookies look lovely. I’ve been wanting to try out cardamon as I’ve never baked with it before and this works great! Love seeing more healthy refined sugar free Christmas cookies for a change. For a while I thought I couldn’t have Christmas cookies this year!

  • Winnie Reeves December 9, 2015 at 5:35 pm

    First of all…these thumbprint cookies look amazing!!!! A must try for this holiday season….When it comes to the hatchery and the plethora of deliciousness available, the possibilities are endless… but I must say that I have my eye on the Dona Chai concentrate. From chai flavored cakes to drinks, I can think of several things to make with that concentrate that would satisfy my chai-obsessed tastebuds 😃

  • Siri December 9, 2015 at 5:51 pm

    The blood orange olive oil! Yum!

  • Amy Jo December 9, 2015 at 6:58 pm

    The Spiced Wine Jelly and Hibiscus Lavender Syrup look so good!

  • Sophie | The Green Life December 9, 2015 at 7:28 pm

    I love these photos Jessie! I can feel all the high Christmas vibes just by looking at them! And these cookies are the cutest thing ever. Oh how I wish I could enter this giveaway. :) I’ve been hearing about Hatchery a lot this past little while and they sound amazing! I’m all for things made from scratch, but I also love supporting small artisans who are passionate about what they do and do it well. Big hugs xo

  • Maureen December 9, 2015 at 8:06 pm

    Do I really have to just pick one thing I would like from Hatchery? Cuz The Truffleist Mustard sounds divine (I’m a sucker for anything truffle). Oh wait, there’s the Dark Robust Taste Maple Syrup that I could pour on/in everything. And then there is the Chai Spice Nut Butter that could find it’s way into breakfast, lunch and dinner!! Can you tell I need The Hatchery in my life??!!

  • Breana December 9, 2015 at 10:07 pm

    I’m always on a BBQ quick so the Korean BBQ from Southern Art looks delicious! And anything bourbon-related, like Reginald’s Homemade bourbon pecan peanut butter. YUM.

    I’ve noticed you and other vegan bloggers swearing by Hatchery lately and I’ve been seriously looking into it myself for the past month. No one has mentioned concerns that they might be delivered something that doesn’t work with their diet, and the website says they can’t accommodate. Do you find it to fit the vegan diet okay? I don’t have any serious allergens but my body sure takes notice when I sneak it something out of the ordinary!

  • joan December 10, 2015 at 5:48 am

    Balsamic Honey!
    I laughed when I read you get satisfaction from squashing the dough ball with your thumb. I get it! :)

  • Anna December 10, 2015 at 7:46 am

    I’d love to try the rosemary honey mustard!

  • Allison December 10, 2015 at 8:39 am

    These cookies look wonderful! I love thumbprint cookies and am excited to try them. I would love to try the jams, condiments, and spreads from Hatchery. Wishing you the warmest of holidays.

  • Brooke @ Chocolate and Marrow December 10, 2015 at 9:51 am

    Oh Jessie, I love this post so so much. Thumbprint cookies have a very special place in my heart. I used to make them with my sister every year for the holidays–I’d be on cookie duty, her on the fudge middles. It’s just not the same making them without her here but getting to see gorgeous photos like these makes me want to bring the tradition back into my life again. Perhaps in a new and different way that includes this jam because 1) I suck at making the fudge (always have, which is why it was her job) and 2) this jam looks awesome. Thanks for sharing such a beautiful post, food thoughts, and photos! Happiest of holidays to you love!

  • Bethany @ Athletic Avocado December 10, 2015 at 3:13 pm

    These cookies are GORGEOUS! I just checked out Hatchery for myself and Im in love! I saw a chai-spiced nut butter on there and I need it ASAP!

  • Rebecca @ Strength and Sunshine December 10, 2015 at 3:34 pm

    There are so many great ones! This jam, the coffee jelly, the carrot cake jam! Wow!

  • Megan Prendergast December 10, 2015 at 4:59 pm

    These look so good – can’t wait to make them over the break for my family!

  • Jenny December 10, 2015 at 5:19 pm

    Your recipes are so beautifully simple and elegant. Everything I’ve tried has been such an incredible success — most recently the FANTASTIC Baby Ruths — and I can’t wait to give these a try! I could also get lost perusing the Hatchery website, but I think if I had to choose I’d go with the salt caramel syrup, because I just can’t imagine anything better!

  • Odessa | Odessa darling December 10, 2015 at 7:53 pm

    These cookies look delicious! I love that they’re free of refined sugars and vegan without having to make that the whole point. I’d love to try the Chai creamed honey from hatchery – literally drooling over the thought of that.

  • Shelley | Sevengrams December 10, 2015 at 8:19 pm

    I’m hosting a little boozy cookie evening on Tuesday, and I’m thinking these little bad boys might need to make an appearance. So pretty, great flavours — killin it lady! xx

  • Amanda Paa December 10, 2015 at 9:49 pm

    i am so with you on cooking homemade things, but letting makers make and supplying us with their specialties.

    ypu’ve made the prettiest thumbprints! i love how you referred to divots, as im a golfer ;)
    i’ve got my eye on the Cashew Cardamom Sprouted Almond Spread!

  • Sam December 10, 2015 at 11:32 pm

    I would love this for the holidays! I’m dying to try the Chai Spice Nut Butter. Yum!

  • Jodie Hui December 11, 2015 at 1:53 am

    Wow! These look so delicious – I must get around to trying the recipe out this weekend :) Your food photography and styling is absolutely gorgeous as well xx

  • Tracy December 11, 2015 at 6:58 am

  • Gina Guthrie December 11, 2015 at 11:42 am

    Chai spice nut butter.

  • Anita K December 11, 2015 at 11:43 am

    Asian bulge go BBQ sauce. Since i love Korean bbq this would be the perfect time for me to create a Korean barbecue at my home!

  • Anitha December 11, 2015 at 11:45 am

    Lori’s salt caramel syrup! Perfect for my waffles/pancakes in the morning or if I want to make sweet bakery goods as snack!

  • Violet December 11, 2015 at 11:57 am

    I think I would try the carrot cake jam! I love carrot cake and they could be delicious!

  • Jessica DeVay December 11, 2015 at 1:03 pm

    Hatchery looks amazing! It’s hard to choose which thing I’d want to try most. I was browsing the spices section and the Bagel Shake Co.’s everything spice looks amazing. You could top bloody Mary’s with it, sprinkle on open faced sandys or crackers!

  • Judith December 11, 2015 at 1:10 pm

    Yum! I’d love to try either their honeys or syrups!

  • Megan December 11, 2015 at 1:24 pm

    These look sooo good!! I would love to try the hibiscus ginger syrup (or the orange cardamom jam, of course).

  • Leandra Bitterfeld December 11, 2015 at 1:35 pm

    Oh man! I spend all day on the ski hill and always always have a PB sandwich in my pocket for a mid-morning snack for myself and my student. All of those nut butters would up my sammie game big time!!

  • Darcie December 11, 2015 at 1:44 pm

    These cookies are gorgeous! I love thumbprint cookies.

    As for Hatchery, I’d love any of the baking supplies or the cocktail goodies. One of everything would be okay with me. :)

  • xina December 11, 2015 at 3:10 pm

    that bourbon maple syrup looks amaaazzzing!!

  • Ginny December 11, 2015 at 6:58 pm

    Those look amazing! And the flecks of cardamom give them character… can a cookie have character? As for Hatchery, thanks for the introduction, it seems like a great place to know! Everything sounds amazing, but the one product that stood out immediately was the Chai Creamed Honey from Beekman 1802.

  • Emily Stawicki December 11, 2015 at 7:43 pm

    I so want to try the orange cardamom jam!

  • Fern December 12, 2015 at 8:06 am

    I’d like to try the dulce from the hatchery, probably chai.

  • Julie December 12, 2015 at 8:05 pm

    Strawberry Limoncello Deliciousness sounds, well, delicious!

  • lauren hudson December 12, 2015 at 9:24 pm

    Everything looks so incredible. Tops include blueberry basil jam, madagascar vanilla sugar, & chili oil. Fingers crossed because hatchery looks like a dream!

  • Penny December 13, 2015 at 6:32 am

    I would love to try the carrot cake jam. So many great products to choose from.

  • Jodi December 13, 2015 at 7:52 am

    That cinnamon stick ornament is so adorable. Quality bonding and crafts time, I just love it! Hoping the holiday season is treating you well so far Jessie, these cookies sounds delightful. And orange cardamom jam!? be still my heart. x

  • Ashlyn ~ Dollop of Yum December 13, 2015 at 3:13 pm

    I can totally relate to the satisfaction you got from making indentations in the dough. That’s my favorite part of making thumbprint cookies (well, besides eating them of course)! All of Hatchery’s products look amazing. I had never heard of them before but love their mission. Thank you for introducing me to them! If I had to pick, I’d choose the Dark Chocolate Malted Fudge. It would be amazing on brownies, ice cream, milkshakes, decadent waffles, or heck, even straight out of the jar!

  • Sara December 13, 2015 at 4:37 pm

    I’m supposed to pick one thing? Ya right. Give me all of the nut butters. ALL OF THE SPICE BLENDS I’m dying. Charred sriracha???!!! Wowow. Also these cookies look like everything I need right now.

  • Christina December 13, 2015 at 8:46 pm

    I absolutely love salsa, and the Pumpkin Mole Salsa sounds like such a unique and savory combination that I would like to try next.

  • Kristen December 14, 2015 at 1:10 am

    I’d like to try the Apricot Ale Beer Jelly.

  • Roxana December 14, 2015 at 12:30 pm

    The Bee’s Knees spicy honey sounds delicious!

  • Sarah | Well and Full December 14, 2015 at 4:05 pm

    These cookies look amazing, Jessie!! You are the queen of vegan cookies, girl ;)

  • Laura December 14, 2015 at 4:07 pm

    Yum there are SO many things! The white truffle mayo sounds delicious!

  • Jacqui December 14, 2015 at 5:50 pm

    I want to try their the charred sriracha! And I want to try out these cookies too! ;)

  • Elissa Fuchs December 14, 2015 at 8:45 pm

    Because the Honey Sesame Waffles are so magical I doubled the recipe for the thumbprints tonight. I used the Almond butter cashew butter combo and organic apple butter and fig jam as fillings. It’s total love at first slightly crunchy then soft creamy-like incredibly delicious and satisfying bite. I also added cardamom to the flour. Look forward to trying the orange cardamom jam!

  • betty December 15, 2015 at 8:33 am

    Love everything in this post Jessie, especially the photos, the styling, the recipe, and your ode to Hatchery!! What you wrote is so true – not only is Hatchery’s selection great, but the fact that they support independent, small batch makers means everything to me. I feel like the jams I get to try, the seasonings, the honey – I can taste every nuance, every effort, every care that was put into creating these edibles, and that’s why I love Hatchery!! These cookies look so good and is putting me in a very festive mood!

  • Jessica December 15, 2015 at 5:22 pm

    What a great giveaway Jessie! Wow this list could be long.. Everything sounded so good, the chai nut butter sound yummy. I’ve never heard of the hatchery what a great selection of delicious things! Happy holidays!

  • Emilie @ The Clever Carrot December 15, 2015 at 7:48 pm

    Hey Jess! You hit the nail on the head! If you can’t make it from scratch and yes, who on earth can do it all? (I’d like to meet them. I’ll ask them to babysit) The next best thing is supporting others that create artisan products! Wow, it’s the greatest feeling to support them and the best part is you can feel their energy in their creations. How cool is that?? I haven’t tried Amisha’s jams yet, but I know she’s got some serious jammin’ skills. XO

  • Julie Teague December 21, 2015 at 7:40 am

    These sound amazing. My husband has been wanting some jam-filled cookies for christmas, but is going through chemo, so we are trying to make everything we eat as clean and healthy as possible. These are perfect. As for the giveaway, the apricot jam sounds amazing! So many awesome products…going to do some shopping there definitely.

    I’ve been catching up on your posts today! These cookies look pretty easy to make and sound as delicious as they look! I love hitting up the farmer’s market and supporting the local farmers and businesses. It gives me a sense of pride knowing I’m supporting my neighbors who are running their own businesses (dreams)! The concept behind the Hatchery Box is pretty cool, I hadn’t heard of it before :) Thanks for sharing!!

    They look exactly like perfectly imperfect little stained glass windows, with a Nordic feel to them. I love the gently enthusiastic way you have of writing, thank you!
