Mike of Ugly Food Dude selected Thumbprints For Us Big Guys on page 164. Check his blog for the recipe.
Jam thumbprints - an oldie but a goodie. Isn't it funny how foods go in and out of style just like clothes do? I used to see these more often but lately they seem to be a thing of the past and only make appearances at Christmastime. Maybe it's time for a thumbprint revival!
I think they are also called birdsnests in other parts of the world? My mom saw them and said, "Oh, birdsnest cookies!" Would a rose by any other name smell as sweet? Oh yes. Whether you call them thumbprints or birdsnests, they are just as yummy. My favorite is raspberry jam but the platter looks pretty if you use different colored jams like blackberry or apricot.
