super easy and yummy. I added a teaspoon of vanilla extract and they were loved by all. If you make these as directed, they are very small and i thought the cooking time was too long. I burned the first batch. I cooked the rest at 365 for 6 1/2 minutes for a perfect cookie. Read More

So easy and very tasty. Did add a splash of vanilla in the dough and used confectionery sugar glaze instead of chocolate. Read More

YUMMY! These are even better than traditional thumbprint cookies from scratch. We also used strawberry jam instead of raspberry on some cookies, and they were just as good. Read More

This was sooo easy, but looked elegant and homemade on a tray. I made them for a cookie exchange, and my family demanded their own batch. Definite repeat! Read More

Yummy, I made a lemon version. I added 1t lemon extract to the cookie batter and then I used lemon marmalade (curd would also work) for the filling and then drizzled with citrus glaze (1 cup sifted powdered sugar and a 4 teaspoons orange juice/or lemon juice). Read More

These cookies were amazing but I actually didn't do the drizzle as directed. I found a WONDERFUL almond drizzle from another recipe on this site - "Raspberry and Almond Shortbread Thumbprints". So I made the cookies from the cookies mix and covered them with that drizzle. I got so many compliments and loved them so much myself that I could hardly keep my hands off of them. By far the best turnout of all my xmas cookies this year. Read More
