These are super good. I thought that these tasted like the thumbprint cookies that I make for Christmas. But these are much easier. I used one cup of freezer jam and that just enough. I will be making these again. I'm thinking of making them for Valentine's day and using a heart cookie cutter to cut them with after they are completely cool.
