Baking with Dorie: Kids' Thumbprints

Four words: I love these cookies!! I hate that I love them because I know I'll keep on opening the cookie jar to get "just another one" (thank God I only made half a batch!). Yup, I made them tonight and am totally in love with them!!

The peanut butter cookies are delighfully crisp and the rolled-on chopped nuts (I used almonds) and the strawberry jam filling complemented one another so well. Crisp yet soft cookie, a nutty and roasty outer shell plus a sweet, sticky filling. You gotta love them!!

Thumbs up (pun intended) to Grapefruit of Needful Things for picking out the recipe this week. Please head over to her blog for the recipe. You may also find it on page 163 of Baking: From My Home To Yours by Dorie Greenspan.

Do check out the blogroll here to see what all the other fabulous BWD bakers did with this weeks' recipe.


  1. Such pretty and perfect rounds! The strawberry jam looks like a red jewel on top of each cookie, doesn't it?
    Glad you enjoyed the bake and welcome back! Thanks for baking with us this week :)

  2. Delicious pictures! I want to jump through the screen and eat those! I am getting ready to start mine now and can't wait to try them.

  3. They are beautiful. You left the nuts bigger than I did and I like the look. Good job.

  4. Your photos turned out awesome...and I know what you mean..they are TOO good. I should have made a half a batch like you!

  5. Hehe, like your pun! Your cookies look fantastic. The almond looks like an interesting substitution.

  6. You're back, Tina, YAY! I love any peanut butter cookie, YUMS! Will be sure to try out this one Insha-Allah!
