A couple of weeks ago, a young friend of mine posted a picture of these cookies on Facebook....well, okay, not these exact same ones. I think hers looked a wee bit better than these.
Anyway, I think I've only made this kind of cookie once or twice in my entire life, and that was a long, long time ago. So I decided to do some thumbprint practice this morning. They didn't turn out too bad taste-wise, but I was reminded about how bad I am at decorating. You should see my cakes, sheesh!
Funny thing about the recipe though. It said to use about two teaspoons of dough for each cookie and that the recipe would make 4 dozen. I thought that was too much dough, so I cut it down to one teaspoon per cookie and it only made 3 dozen. What's up with that? If I had done what the recipe said, it might have yielded 5 cookies total!
They're kind of fussy to make, so I probably won't be making them too often. But I'm glad I did today.
