Double Thumbprint Cookies

READY IN: 37mins
Recipe by Pumpkie

A different take on a classic cookie, wonderful for valentine's day, a new recipe from BH&G. I used extra jam in mine and drizzled them with a glaze.

Top Review by Dwynnie

These were very good--though I may stick with more of a shortbread for my next batch of thumbprint cookies. (The technique for making the hearts worked very well!) The cookie base almost tasted like a Newton to me, which is not what I was going for! Thank you for the cute cookies!
