Never again will I cheat and make these from the Betty Crocker bag! After the first batch, I realized that I wasn't going to get anywhere near 3 dozen cookies. So, I rolled the dough into about 1 inch or smaller in size. From experience, an actual thumbprint is too wide and shallow which sometimes causes an overflow of jam. So, I poke a hole halfway through the ball using the back end of my spatula which is a bit wider than my pinky finger. The dough will spread a bit which results in a thumbprint size crevice of jam. I noticed that my last tray spreaded 2x as much as the first tray. I believe it was from over handling the dough as I was constantly reshaping them to get a full dozen. Next time, I will pop the loaded tray in the fridge in between baking.
