There is simply no time to have long drawn out cookie processes. I am all about getting it done fast, easy and making sure the cookies taste delicious. For years we have used this easy Thumbprint cookies recipe in my home and now I would love to share it with you.
Imagine a cookie that you get to put your fingers on before someone else eats it, that’s right a Thumbprint cookie. The one time it is legal to smash a food and serve it, lol!
Don’t worry about running to the grocery store for funky ingredients because they are not in my recipe. I keep this plain, simple and delicious. As a mom of a child with severe food allergies I have made these nut free, and he can eat them. You will need a few staples like butter, and flour and about 1 hour of time. Get ready to lavishly live easy thumbprint cookies out loud.
