Apple Butter Thumbprint Cookies (Gluten Free AND Vegan!)
I think I may be the only person in Portland without dietary restrictions. I swear, everyone here is either vegetarian or flexitarian or gluten intolerant… it’s like an episode of Portlandia. But real life.
I recently made dessert for a get-together where I knew there would be vegan and gluten-free eaters. Now, I make tons of recipes that are gluten free. Or vegan. But not both – and I figured out why when I was trying to decide what to bring to the party. It’s hard to find a good recipe that follows both restrictions! Luckily I found a yummy-looking thumbprint cookie recipe after some intense google searching, and put my own twist on it – including adding the homemade apple butter that I can’t get enough of.
And seriously, you wouldn’t have known these treats were vegan or gluten free! They were a huge hit, and I can’t wait to make them again with different jam and butter flavors.
