Riley's Thumbprint Cookies

READY IN: 17mins
Recipe by Tandy Higgins

A bite size, melt in your mouth delight! This recipe taste just like the local bakery. Easy! Just be sure not to make them too big. They are wonderful for any type of gathering, or when you just want to treat yourself to alittle bit of heaven. Also, great for kids with egg allergies, since there aren't any in the recipe!

I think I made these too big. Only made 3 dozen. They aren't as white as Riley's and the middle rose up. Maybe I need more flour. But they taste like Riley's!!
