Mmmmm – I love thumbprint cookies. Since I’m supposed to be losing weight – I don’t bake much….but it’s cool out these last few days, and I need to send a care package to my daughter who is a Freshman at Northern Arizona University – so I’m baking cookies to send in her box.
Some thumbprint recipes don’t call for coconut, some want you to put a glaze on top, some are rolled in cinnamon and topped with apple butter (yum) – Maddie loves thumbprint cookies with coconut and berry jam -so that’s what she gets! We brought home some Marionberry jam from our Oregon vacation last month – so I’m setting her up with some tasty treats.
Here’s my recipe – its probably very similar to other thumbprint cookie recipes – but it’s easy, has minimal ingredients – and is very tasty!
