Every Christmas, we would have thumbprint cookies. Even though it isn't Christmas, I really wanted to make these! They are just so delicious! Since I couldn't find my mom's recipe, I decided to look for one on here, and I remembered that mom's had lemon juice in it, and so does this one! I decided to give it a try. I left out dipping them in the egg white and walnuts, which was fine. I filled them with apricot preserves, and they were great! When I was finished making these, they tasted just like my mom's recipe! A few minutes later I found her recipe... and this one is a whole lot easier, cheaper, and tasted the same! I will be saving this for a long time!

These were fun to make. I had to come up with a sub for the walnuts (as I am allergic to tree nuts). I used finely chopped peanuts/flaked coconut/ and crushed Crispix cereal for the coating. I also put a chocolate chip in the center of each after five minutes of baking, but I think the lemon/raspberry flavor would be better (Gasp!!) without the chocolate. I DO like the coconut being in the crunchy coating, though. We'll do these again. Oh...I also like the relatively short list of ingredients and how these "present". Very pretty cookies.

I'm not a huge fan of desserts or sweets...but I could eat this entire batch in one sitting. Just like my mother used to make - TY!!!
