A pretty cookie for the goodie trays. They are similar to a thumbprint cookie but they also remind me of the jam filled shortbreads. Yummy, thanks for the recipe.

Everyone loved them. They are VERY similar to jam thumbprint cookies but faster and easier. I made the mistake of making 1/2 with raspberry jam and 1/2 with real blueberry jam but the blueberry was really dark,almost blackish so next time, I'll either use apricot or orange-anything lighter will work.
