I decided to take a break from all the crafting and got in the kitchen to bake one of my favorite cookies. These thumbprint cookies were easy to make - only had a handful of ingredients - and tasted delicious warm out of the oven. Anna and Will helped, but I use the term "help" loosely with kids in the kitchen. Because really, I could have made these cookies faster and kept the place tidier WITHOUT their help, but Anna did seem to like dumping the ingredients into the mixer + making little dents into the dough with her thumb. It was worth the extra trouble...and now I can say that I baked with the kids!
The recipe makes 22 tiny cookies so I would double the recipe because you can always freeze the dough, which was what I did.
Have you been baking lately? 'Tis the Season!
A review on Thumb Print Cookies:
Result: 4 out of 4 stars.
Will I make it again: Absolutely.
Chef's Notes: At first I used just the egg yolk, per the recipe, but my dough just wasn't sticking together. It was more like crumbs. So I added the egg white and it formed a perfectly round dough. Also, I made a rookie mistake of putting too much strawberry spread on the cookies. They still tasted good, but not pretty to look at. I also just want to say that these cookies are buttery, like shortbread, and can be eaten without any spreads at all.
