Thumbprint Cookies

My MOM brought home this recipe. So I told my MOM that I will bake some for her.
But the frist batch I made did not taste right. So I changed the recipe up a little and add the cinnamon,sugar and baking powder.
And instaed of putting cherry in the middle I put Smuckers Strwaberry Jam and sprinkle powder sugar on top! Yummmy!
