Thumbprint Cookies

These classic thumbprint cookies are easy to make, with no chilling necessary. Just whip up a batch, fill with your favorite jam, and pop them in the oven. They come out of the oven soft and beautiful! If you’d like a little more pizzazz, you can also drizzle them with a little icing. You can’t go wrong either way!
