Like a butter cookie rolled in nuts with jam in the center. I make these every Christmas to give to relatives and friends. They all love this cookie! For even more flavorful cookies, try using almond extract instead of the vanilla.

Made these for my daughters wedding and put colored icing in the centers - a great cookie everyone loved them.

I loved them... and so did all of my co-workers! I get requests constantly to make them again. Can't go wrong with this recipe!

6 dozen is way too many cookies. I cut down the recipe. These cookies tasted good. However when you bite into them - they crumble. I recommend trying another Thumbprint recipe. These just don't come out right.
