Thumbprint cookies are always a must-have on my Christmas cookie list. The jam makes them look so pretty and festive, and I like how you can use different jams in the same batch to change up the color and flavor. The pecans add a yummy crunch.

I thought it was very good. I love to bake too, but sometimes time constraints can make a packaged mix a good thing.

Delicious! I'm a sucker for fruit-filled cookies.

Found half a bag (???) of sugar cookie mix yesterday in the cabinet. Did a search to try to use it up, this one came up and I had enough for half a batch of cookies. Unfortunately, I was in a hurry, didn't read the instructions thoroughly, and filled the indentations with the preserves at the beginning instead of baking for 10 minutes, then adding and baking for another 2 minutes. Well, the preserves spread out, but the cookies still tasted good, they're just not as pretty.

I made these this past Christmas. They were delicious. I only made two changes, one was that I didn't add the nuts, because we don't like nuts. Second I dipped the bottom of the cookies into melted chocolate & let it harden on wax paper. Thank you for sharing.
