I am surprised this recipe hasn't been reviewed yet! I can't give a star review since I did not make it as written. The recipe for the dough is a keeper, love the texture and brown sugar and oats (I used scant 2 cups of fine oats). It is a perfect hearty base for the crowning deep flavour of the plum jam I used for the fill. I call these "the darker side of thumbprints" because of the wintery rich flavours. I incorporated crushed walnuts by rolling the balls in it after step 10(no eggwash needed). Lovely change to one's usual cookie! Thank you...
