Good not-too-sweet cookie. But if you make the dough balls 1" and use a teaspoon full of jelly you end up with cookies with holes in them edged with jelly. Make the dough balls 1 1/2" in diameter and just a dab of jelly and you're all set! Makes about 21 cookies. Read More

I made these for the first time during the holidays with raspberry jam... everyone loved them!!! A word of advice... keep the dough in the fridge between batches otherwise it will be too soft to work with. Read More

Well balanced recipe. If you're in a hurry this does well in a microwave also. Cook on full power for 2-3 mins on an ungreased microwave-safe plate Read More

My mom used to make these for christmas so I decided to make them this year and with the low cookie yield quadrupled the recipie without taking into consideration that they take more work than a rolled or drop cookie as there's both rolling dough and dropping jam involved. And use just a touch of jam or it drips out the side. Read More

These cookies were not quite what I was expecting. They spread on the pan to become much larger than any other thumbprint cookies I've tried. They did taste good but did not have the presentation I was hoping for. Read More

These are one of my favorite cookies to make for Christmas. They are always a hit. I like using seedless raspberry jam. They are soft and crunchy at the same time. Read More

I have to agree with the previous rating I carefully went through each step and found the cookies to spread out much too wide on the cookie sheet. They didn't look like the jam thumbprints I am used to but tasted okay. Read More
