Tuesdays with Dorie: Thumbprints for Us Big GuysMarch 9, 2010 at 1:00 am | Posted in cookies & bars, groups, sweet things, tuesdays with dorie | 36 Comments
So here, thanks to Mike, I present you with my first batch of Thumbprints. OK, I’ve had two thumbprints all my life, but if those ones ever get me caught red-handed, these ones just might help me get out of trouble!
Not only are they cookies cuties, they are tasty too. They have a crumbly shortbread texture that melts in your mouth. Make them bite-sized and they won’t be messy. Only because I have a bag of almond flour in the fridge, I used ground almonds instead of hazelnuts. Some I filled with strawberry-raspberry jam and others with blueberry-cherry.
For the recipe, see Baking: From My Home to Yours by Dorie Greenspan, or read Ugly Dude Food. In fact, check out Ugly Dude Food even if you don’t want the recipe…he’s one of our lone dude members, and deserves props just for playing along with all of us girls every week!
