  2. Add the egg and beat for 1 more minute. 
  3. Fold in the almond flour until well-incorporated. (The dough will be on the stickier side).

  7. Press your thumb in the center of each to create an indent in the center. 
  8. Fill the indentions with jam of choice. 
  9. Bake for 10 to 15 minutes, or until lightly golden brown. Let cool for at least 10 minutes. Store leftovers in the fridge for up to 4 days.
