Thumbprint Cookies

Thumbprint Cookies:
Re-imagining an Old Favorite

First-time recipe contributor, Kelly Spencer, shared her adaptation of the popular Thumbprint Cookie. This recipe traces back to a Swedish pastry called Hallongrotta which literally means "raspberry cave" in Swedish (Wikipedia).

Traditionally filled with raspberry jam, Kelly switched things up by using cherry jam for the filling. In fact, almost any seedless jam — or even chocolate — could be used to fill these easy to prepare cookies.

Part of Kelly’s cooking ethic is to avoid waste. She had leftover chopped nuts and realized they would make a nice addition on top of the cookies. The topping looks great and adds even more crunch to these delicious, buttery cookies that offer a hint of vanilla.
