So easy and very tasty. Did add a splash of vanilla in the dough and used confectionery sugar glaze instead of chocolate.

Not the amazing thumbprint cookie I was expecting, but it did the trick. I probably won't make this again because I have hopes that there is something better out there.

super easy and yummy. I added a teaspoon of vanilla extract and they were loved by all. If you make these as directed, they are very small and i thought the cooking time was too long. I burned the first batch. I cooked the rest at 365 for 6 1/2 minutes for a perfect cookie.

YUMMY! These are even better than traditional thumbprint cookies from scratch. We also used strawberry jam instead of raspberry on some cookies, and they were just as good.

This was sooo easy, but looked elegant and homemade on a tray. I made them for a cookie exchange, and my family demanded their own batch. Definite repeat!

Yummy, I made a lemon version. I added 1t lemon extract to the cookie batter and then I used lemon marmalade (curd would also work) for the filling and then drizzled with citrus glaze (1 cup sifted powdered sugar and a 4 teaspoons orange juice/or lemon juice).
