"These are my favorite. You can use any flavor jam you want. The servings will depend on the size of your cookies. If you use the Wilton® bags, you can skip a step and just melt the chocolate in the bag."

  1. Beat butter and shortening together in a bowl with an electric mixer until smooth; add white sugar, confectioners' sugar, baking soda, cream of tartar, and salt. Beat until just combined. Stir in egg and vanilla extract. Gradually mix in flour until just combined. Cover and refrigerate dough for 3 hours.
  2. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
  3. Roll the dough into 3/4-inch balls and arrange on an ungreased baking sheet. Press your thumb or end of wooden spoon into the center of each dough ball making an indentation. Spoon 1/4 teaspoon jam into each thumbprint.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until edges of cookies become lightly browned, 8 to 10 minutes. Cool on a wire rack for 5 minutes.
  5. Place white chocolate chips in a microwave-safe bowl; cook in microwave in 10-second intervals, stirring after each interval, until chips are melted. Spoon melted white chocolate into a disposable decorating or plastic bag. Snip off one small corner of bag; drizzle white chocolate over cookies. Sprinkle with red sugar.

These are very good. I put the jam in a small ziploc bag and "piped" it into holes I made with the back of a wooden spoon, that worked out very well. They are really festive looking if you do the white chocolate and red sugar. I'll definitely make them again!

My family liked these quite a bit but I think next time I will skip the white chocolate and sugar garnish as they're really great just by themselves.

These were simply amazing. I've tried a couple other thumbprint recipes before and there was always something wrong with them. This one is simple (no nuts or frills) and it tasted oh so good! I followed the recipe exactly except I didn't have 3 hours to refrigerate the dough. I did put it in the fridge for about an hour though and the consistency while rolling into balls was fine. I used the back of a 1/4 tsp to make the indentations and I put the jelly into a bag and piped it on. I used strawberry jam and the little chunks made it a little messy at times, but most of them came out looking great. And the ones that didn't... well they sure didn't go to waste! I melted about a cup of white chocolate and maybe used half of that for the cookies. They are sweet enough and don't need the white chocolate, but it does make them look nice.

Loved this recipe !! It was easy and the cookies came out perfect ! Instead of the sprinkles I used green melting chips to make them look festive ... Posted pics don't know why the green ones posted so many times... Will be making these every year .
