I am happy to give this recipe 5 stars because the basic recipe is just so good. However, after reading reviews, I did make a few minor adjustments for my own personal taste. I added just a pinch of salt to the dough and also added 1 tsp. of almond extract to the dough because we like that flavor. Then as a variation, I used the egg whites from the 2 egg yolks as an egg wash to brush over the outside of the cookie dough balls and then rolled the outside in crushed, toasted pecans before making the thumb print and adding the jam to the center. I made half the cookies without nuts and the other half with. I have been on a mission to find the perfect thumb print cookie for our taste and this recipe definitely fits the bill. They are wonderful. This is a real keeper and one I will be making for many years to come! Thanks so much for sharing this one.
