These cookies are really yummy--the hot-fudge sauce melts with the jam and makes a great flavor. My kids love these!
Oh, these are so good!! Here are my tweaks:
I don't use cooking spray on my baking sheets. I use parchment paper. But even if I didn't, my sheets are non-stick and the spray wouldn't be necessary. Second, I use margarine in place of the Crisco (in almost all my recipes that call for Crisco, or shortening, I use either butter or good quality baking margarine). And third, these are great with walnuts in place of the pecans, if you prefer. Just make sure to chop very fine. These really are very delicious cookies well worth the little extra time and effort that they take.
These would be great if they stayed together. They're really crumbly, but the combination of pecans, fudge, and raspberry jam is tasty!
I really had fun making these. I used chopped walnuts instead of pecans and found them to be really good with this cookie. I did need to re-imprint the thumbprint on most of the cookies after coming out of the oven the first time, but it was no biggie. I used the jarred hot fudge sauce per recipe and I was not a huge fan of it in this cookie. I do love chocolate though. I think I will try the recipe for "hard chocolate glaze" next time. I made several without the chocolate and just the preserves and these were my favorite. My husband preferred the ones with both fudge and jam. Recipe makes quite a few cookies. Oh, and some people have problems with the jam in their thumbprint cookies running out - but this does not happen with these cookies. The cookies hold their form well.
The cookie was quite bland. The fudge was good but didn't melt with the raspberry jam so it was an awkward eat. I did a few with peanut butter instead of raspberry and it actually worked a bit better. still..nothing I would do again for the cost and time involved.
