  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Line baking sheets with parchment paper.
  2. In a large bowl, cream butter with brown sugar and 1/3 cup white sugar. Blend in the vanilla and milk. Mix in the flour and corn starch. Stir in the mini chocolate chips.
  3. Form the dough into 1 inch balls, and roll in the remaining white sugar. Place on the prepared cookie sheet, about 1 1/2 inches apart. Use your finger or thumb to press straight down into the center of each ball, making a well for the jam. Neatly fill each cookie with a small amount of jam.

Great Recipe. To make uniform cookies, I used my melon baller. And to make it easy to fill the wells I put the jam in a sandwich bag, cut off a small corner and used it like a frosting bag.

These little cookies are delicious! I didn't use the chocolate chips but they still turned out to be one of my favorites of all the Christmas cookies I baked this year! Be sure and make the well deep and straight down -- and these make a lot more than 3 dozen cookies (maybe I just made mine smaller) and you won't need a full 10 oz. jar of jam either. A previous review used a baby spoon for the jam -- I didn't have a baby spoon but a demi-tasse spoon worked just as well. This recipe is a keeper and will be on my future Christmas cookie list from now on.

These cookies are WONDERFUL. They're crispy and a bit chewey at the same time! The chocolate & the raspberry compliment eachother. YUM! I am making these ahead for our cookie exchange! Very easy to make - but don't use anything but real butter or they won't be the same!

I've fallen in love with these cookies! I made the first dozen too big (my husband's thrilled with that), I think they're better smaller. I made the impression with the small end of a cork and used strawberry preserves (couldn't find black raspberry at my store). I think they're fantastic and love the bits of chocolate in there. I'd give this 10 stars if I could!

Great flavor combination! Thirteen minutes was almost too long. Watch these carefully. Overbaking dries eggless cookies quickly. Next time, I'll add more mini-chocolate chips and squash balls a little flatter for more even browning.

These are wonderful! I actually made them pretty much as written, although I rolled them in turbinado sugar instead of regular. I used Trader Joe's seedless blackberry jam, and I put it into a small zip-top bag, cut off the corner, and piped the jam into the thumbprints. I must have made mine very small, 'cause 1 batch made 47 cookies. Yum, yum!

I made a big batch of these for mothers day to bring to my family luncheon - and my family was thrilled! they didnt even know i could cook! ;) i used 1/3 C. unsweetended Cocoa instead of chocolate chips to give the whole cookie a chocolate flavor and used a cork to make the holes, as per other suggestion. i also used a ziploc as icing bag to fill holes with my favorite boisenberry jam! GREAT!
