Size Wise

These colorful cookies are great for serving at a holiday party or for sharing at a cookie exchange.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best thumprint cookie I've ever eaten. Best thumprint cookie I've ever eaten. I added a little more flour to make the dough easier to handle. I did not refrigerate. I filled them with homemade preserves and baked them for 20 minutes. I didn't realize it was 10 minutes, then fill, and 10 more. It worked out fine! Light and delicious cookies. Can't wait to share them.

The instructions are not really clear, refrigerate after mixing, make them the same size- don't be tempted to make them bigger, make sure you indent the cookie deep enough they rise in the oven after first bake= most important: double bake! 10 minutes first and 8 second bake they will harden a bit after cooling.
