These are great! They taste like the ubiquitous thumbprint cookies you always see at the holidays, but I think they're easier to make and much prettier! They're also a lot easier to make than pinwheel cookie recipes that require making two kinda of dough. My spirals looked a little loose on the sheet before baking, but the cookies puffed up and filled in nicely. Thanks for posting!
