I grew up w/ this recipe as a family Holiday favorite. We didn't fill the thumbprints with jam until after the cookie was fully baked which was @ 325 degrees for 10-12 minutes or until golden brown on the bottom. This recipe does not make very many, so I usually increase the ingredients x2 or x4 for gift giving. We use a variety of jams to fill the thumbprints and the cookies looked like little multi colored jeweled tasties on the serving plate. The jams varieties we use are strawberry, blackberry, raspberry, apricot or peach, grape, and orange marmalade. Not sure why people are having a problem, maybe the butter was too soft or melted. Dough should be soft but able to roll into balls without sticking. Try refrigerating the dough if too soft to form.
