Thumbprint Cookies for Tami's Cookie Carnival

I was finally able to stand on my feet(post surgery) long enough to participate (though a little late) in Tami's Cookie Carnival! We had two recipes to choose from(or we could make both) and I chose the Raspberry Thumbprint Cookie from Cooking Light. (Instead of raspberry I used the strawberry jam that my daughters and I canned). I knew right away that I wanted to bake this cookie because I love almond and this cookie has almond paste in it! So good!
I finished these last night and gave my husband one to sample...He was at the computer listening to his itunes with the headphones on, but after one bite gave me a thumbs up! I agree! These cookies are very flavorful:) Now I can cross thumbprint cookies off of my "To bake" list, but I will definitely be making more versions! These cookies are so bright and cheery:) It may sound crazy, but just looking at them lifts my spirits!

THANKS Tami for a great recipe! See you all next month!

  2. I can see why they made you feel happy, they do have a cheeriness to them. I love the almond flavor of the cookie dough as well mixed with homemade jam. Thanks for your beautiful happy version :)

  12. So glad you are back on your feet :-) Hope things are going to normal pretty soon and of course I missed your posts already.

    These cookies are really special. I believe it is one of those cookies with the concept of WYSIWYG What You See is What You Get! Love it. Can't wait for your elaborate versions of it!

    Take care for now...

  13. My kids love jam thumbprints! Yours are so vibrantly red! If it weren't so hot, I'd be tempted to go whip up a batch.

  14. Thumbprint cookies are on my "To bake" list too. Yours look scrumptious. I especially love that you used your homemade jam.
