    ~Leanne~'s Note:

    I started looking for a thumbprint recipe and found this one I have changed it a bit to fit my families tastes. These are a great holiday cookies. I have also dyed the dough orange for Halloween. These are very versatile.

      I wanted a thumbprint cookies that did not have nuts and this one turned out perfectly. I did chill the dough about 20 minutes and used a melon baller (using the back) to press out the hole. They looked beautiful. Filled with some homemade strawberry preserves.

      Great recipe! I sometimes use almond extract instead of the vanilla. Chilling the dough about 20 minutes before rolling into balls helps working with a sticky dough. Also, dipping your finger into the flour before making the print works well.

      Wonderful! Easy to make and taste great! Next time I am going to add almond extract (didn't have any in the house today) or maybe even half almond half vanilla.
