Note: I have also rolled the balls in chopped nuts prior to baking, which makes a very pretty presentation as well. (The photo is not my own, but borrowed from the internet.)
Hope you enjoy!

How to Make Thumbprint Cookies
- Mix first 6 ingredients together. Form into 1 inch balls. Place on ungreased baking sheet. Use wooden spoon, or finger, to make hole in center of ball. Hole should go about 1/2-2/3 way through; do not go all the way through ball. Bake for 8 minutes at 350 degrees. Remove from oven, fill holes with jam; do not overfill or jam will run over entire cookie. Return cookies to oven and bake for another 6-10 minutes. Be careful not to over bake. When cookies come out of oven, sprinkle chopped nuts over jam.
