I actually just found time to put these cookies together at the very last minute, but apparently can’t get much time to write, so, much like these cookies this is going to be short, sweet and to the point. The Thumbprint Cookies for this week’s Tuesdays with Dorie were chosen by Mike of Ugly Food Dude (thanks for a quick and easy one this week Mike!)
The short of these cookies is that they reminded me of a sandy, crumbly almost shortbread type of recipe. I really liked the dusting of confectioners’ sugar on them and the raspberry jam – red seedless here, not that you can tell from the color in my photos – was delicious. The only change I made to the recipe was to use the ground almonds I had on hand. I did have some hazelnuts, and will give that a shot some time, but there was no extra time for roasting, peeling, cooling, grinding, etc. (Wow – I just felt a bit like the Little Red Hen there – no one to help me with the hazelnuts, but everyone to eat the cookies).
Alas, dear bloggy friends, this ends my quick post because it is very late and a little someone is waking up. More next time – with better planning, promise!
As always, check out the TWD blogroll for many more lovely variations on this week’s recipe.
