      These are the best Thumbprint Cookies I have ever made, and I've been making them since the 70s when I received a book called Sunburst Farm Family Cookbook (from Santa Barbara, CA). The only difference between this one and their recipe is Walnuts vs Pecans, and the addition of a 1/2 tsp sea salt. One of my family's favorites!
