Thumbprint Cookies


⅔ cup butter, softened

½ cup sugar

2 egg yolk

1 teaspoon vanilla

1 ½ cup all-purpose flour

Desired jam


  1. In a large bowl beat butter with a mixer on medium 30 seconds. Add sugar. Beat until combined, scraping sides of bowl as needed. Beat in egg yolks and vanilla until combined. Beat in flour. Chill, covered, 1 hour or until dough is easy to handle.
  2. Preheat oven to 375°F. Grease a cookie sheet. Shape dough into 1-inch balls. Roll in desired coating. Place balls 1 inch apart on prepared cookie sheet. Using your thumb, make an indent in the center of each ball.
  3. Bake 10 to 12 minutes or until bottoms are light brown. If centers puff up during baking, re-press with the round side of a measuring teaspoon. Remove cookies; let cool on a wire rack. Before serving, fill centers with desired jam.

There are many things to be thankful for throughout the year.  

I am thankful for my clients, friends, and supporters every day.

Ideas to Express Thankfulness

Say "Thank You": Simple yet powerful, expressing gratitude verbally by saying "thank you" shows sincerity and appreciation.

Write a Thank-You Note: Take the time to write a heartfelt thank-you note or letter. Handwritten notes can have a personal touch that electronic communication may lack.

Thoughtful Gifts: Select a thoughtful gift that reflects your appreciation and the recipient's interests. It doesn't have to be expensive; the sentiment behind the gift is what matters.


Spending Time Together: Sometimes, the most valuable gift is your time. Spend quality time with the person you want to thank, engaging in activities you both enjoy.
