What a perfect combo! Kids love to help with these... usually the thumbprint part!

I made these today using mango jam and blackberry jam. The dough was very wet and even after adding about 1/4 extra cup of flour & refrigerating the dough, it was still very hard to work with. I definitely couldn't form balls. :( The flavor was good but the cookies were so soft they fell apart VERY easily. Sorry I couldn't give more stars but wanted to be honest.
