Absolutely Almond Thumbprint Cookies

I'm not big into Christmas baking, but I do love sweets. And it seems like this time of year I always need treats for last-minute guests or a cookie exchange or a potluck or something, so I better make something. Luckily, these cookies are super easy to make, and the little dollop of fruit spread makes them extra pretty. One more thing checked off the list!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Almond Thumb Print Cookies These are terrific! Easy, kid friendly recipe. I added 1/2 cup of flour to my dough to stretch it and made my cookies small for little fingers it ended up making 3 doz. cookies.
