I first made these when I was dating my husband. Each Christmas we would get together with his parents and make candies and cookies. It is one of our traditions and one of my favorite things during the Christmas season. I think it was our second Christmas that we made these. I loved them and they are now one of my favorites.
Thumbprint cookies are a favorite for many because of the buttery soft cookie is mixed with the sweet tang of the jam that they are filled with. Add on a drizzle of the sweet glaze and you have the perfect combination of flavors.
