Recipe by Becca
"Raspberry-filled, fragile, buttery pecan-crusted cookies. They remind me of a miniature pie in flavor and looks. They are a delicious cookie any time of the year, but especially perfect for the holiday season. Other fillings can be used; any jelly, jam, candied fruit or tinted powdered sugar icing. Our family favorite is raspberry jam."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

butter at room temperature
vegetable shortening (such as Crisco®)
all-purpose flour, sifted
1 1/2 cups
finely chopped pecans
1 (8 ounce) jar
raspberry jam, or as needed
Since the recipe didn't list the oven temp, I tried out 350 degrees. My first batch took about 17 minutes to get done (I had them on the top rack), but they were a little overdone.
I did my second batch for 13 minutes on the middle rack, and they got done perfectly.
Also- it seems silly, but I used my pointer finger instead of my thumb to make the imprint, and the cookies looked way better. The pointer finger makes a more even hole, especially when making such small cookies.
Very tasty! I didn't think it would make 4 dozen, because it didn't look like a lot of dough, but I got 45 cookies out of mine. I would have had 48 if I'd made my first batch the correct size. I didn't plan for the dough to expand as much as it did.
Really great! Used all butter (no Crisco!) Pecans are best if chopped REALLY fine. Chilling the dough helped. I was making these for a reception so I wanted them small. I made them smaller than 1", then "thumbprinted" them with a wine cork. I also used a raspberry "all fruit" spread (in a ziploc bag with corner cut off for EASY application.) Made 5 dozen. I will definitely make these again!!!
My son says this was like the reciepe that I lost of my mom's.
my favorite of all the thumb prints!!
Oven temp is 350. This recipe will make less than 4 dozen regular size cookies. In order to make a bite size cookie, use a nickel size cookie ball.
I used my tart 'World Famous Cranberry Sauce' to fill these and I love them! I baked them at 350 for 12-13 minutes.
These are delicious!!
