    thegourmetgirl's Note:

    As a kid, our next door neighbors would make these cookies at Christmastime. After I grew up and moved out....I always longed for these yummy cookies and asked my neighbor for the coveted recipe. It wasn't until 20 years later, when I was getting married that I finally got this recipe for Thumbprint Cookies. (I wanted the recipe so much that I told Mrs. B to give me the recipe for our wedding gift!)

      Great recipes, easy to prepare, delightful to consume! I did substitute flaked coconut for the pecans and it seemed to go over quite well. Thanks for sharing.
