Jam Thumbprints for Us Big Guys-Tuesdays with Dorie

Back in April of 2008, while perusing foodie websites, I noticed there was a plethora of marshmallows from a baking group called Tuesdays with Dorie. I already had Baking From My Home to Yours, so it was an easy task to join the group. Now three years later, the book has been completed. Had I not joined the group, I would never made all the delicious cookies, cakes, pies and breads nor would I have become more proficient in my baking skills. Baking with such a great group of food bloggers has been a wonderful experience.  Thanks to Laurie, the brainchild of TWD, to Dorie Greenspan for writing the book, to Jules for managing the the website and to all the bakers I’ve met along the way. Baking with Julia will be the next book for the group. I have had this book for several years now and am excited about baking along again.

For this last recipe, Dorie chose Jam Thumbprints for Us Big Guys, an elegant nutty cookie filled with raspberry jam. Not only are the cookies delicious, but look like beautiful jewels surrounded by a cookie. You can find this recipe on page 164 of Baking from My Home to Yours and the peanut butter variation on In the Kitchen and On the Road with Dorie. Drop by and visit her lovely food and travel blog.

    Those may be the prettiest thumbprints I've ever seen! My Christmas cookies were good, but sadly, not very pretty!
