To me, any kind of jam thumbprint cookie can be a wonderful summer cookie or a great holiday cookie. I’m aware that a lot of people associate Thumbprint Cookies with the Holidays! I understand why, but allow me explain my take on Thumbprint Cookies.
I used to watch my grandmother can jam whenever she could during the summer, and right after she did she always made a batch of thumbprint cookies. Usually she made strawberry-rhubarb or apricot-rhubarb, jam and cookies. I was eating rhubarb-apricot jam before I really even knew what an apricot was!
Anyhow, I decided I wanted to make a fruity cookie that could be enjoyed by all while we still have some nice weather left. If you’re a fruit lover, and I hope you are, this one’s for you!
Shortbread without a doubt is one of my favorites. If you haven’t ever made shortbread before, don’t worry! It’s no big deal, I promise you!
You can either use my shortbread recipe included here, or you can buy shortbread cookie mix in a pouch and just add butter and a little flavoring. Don’t worry I won’t tell anyone if you use a mix. 🙂
