  1. A pretty cookie for the goodie trays. They are similar to a thumbprint cookie but they also remind me of the jam filled shortbreads. Yummy, thanks for the recipe.
  2. Everyone loved them. They are VERY similar to jam thumbprint cookies but faster and easier. I made the mistake of making 1/2 with raspberry jam and 1/2 with real blueberry jam but the blueberry was really dark,almost blackish so next time, I'll either use apricot or orange-anything lighter will work.


Hi it's fun to be part of RecipeZaar! I work full time and in my spare time I like to experiment in the kitchen. I also enjoy small hikes, biking and the outdoors. I look forward to travelling to new destinations in the future. It is always nice to try different tastes from different restaurants. I enjoy trying to recreate some of the memorable meals I have shared with my husband. He is more than willing to attempt any of my kitchen creations. I am an avid cookbook collector and my husband teases that I could open my own library! I guess I am always seeking that "perfect recipe". I have found many great recipes here on Zaar and I think some of the greatest cooks are on this site!! I hope you enjoy the recipes that I share with you. Have fun! Decadent1
