LEMON CURD EASY THUMBPRINT COOKIE RECIPE TIPS:

  • Line your cookie sheets with parchment paper.
  • Wrap the dough tightly and chill for an hour before baking.
  • Use a small cookie scoop for even dough portions.
  • Use a chapstick tube (or other round object like a 1/2 teaspoon measure or cork wine stopper) to make even indentations in your dough balls before baking.
  • Use the tube again after they come out of the oven to deepen the indentations so they can hold lots of delicious lemon curd!
  • Once cool, use a pastry bag for even filling with lemon curd. Or a small spoon works too. (I like to use a baby spoon.)
  • Easily make the cookie shells ahead and freeze. Right before you need them, fill with lemon curd. Yum!
