Good, not-too-sweet cookie. But if you make the dough balls 1" and use a teaspoon full of jelly, you end up with cookies with holes in them edged with jelly. Make the dough balls 1 1/2" in diameter, and just a dab of jelly, and you're all set! Makes about 21 cookies.
I made these for the first time during the holidays with raspberry jam... everyone loved them!!! A word of advice... keep the dough in the fridge between batches otherwise it will be too soft to work with.
My mom used to make these for christmas, so I decided to make them this year, and with the low cookie yield, quadrupled the recipie, without taking into consideration that they take more work than a rolled or drop cookie, as there's both rolling [dough] and dropping [jam] involved. And use just a touch of jam, or it drips out the side.
Well balanced recipe. If you're in a hurry, this does well in a microwave also. Cook on full power for 2-3 mins on an ungreased microwave-safe plate
I have to agree with the previous rating ~ I carefully went through each step and found the cookies to spread out much too wide on the cookie sheet. They didn't look like the jam thumbprints I am used to, but tasted okay.
These cookies were not quite what I was expecting. They spread on the pan to become much larger than any other thumbprint cookies I've tried. They did taste good, but did not have the presentation I was hoping for.
