Be sure to check out the other Tuesdays with Dorie bakers!

Thumbprints For Us Big Guys Cookies
I used walnuts instead of hazelnuts because I'm lazy and didn't want to buy any hazelnuts. Besides, I always think hazelnuts should be a blue-green color.

My cookies spread out a bit and don't look like the photo, but they were tasty.

Thumbprints For Us Big Guys Cookies
I used Pam Jam in the center. Pam Jam? My friend Pam and her family make jam every year from their Berkeley plum tree. It's the best!

Yours look great! I couldn't even get mine to be cookies, as my dough was hard to work with!

Those look fantastic! I used walnuts too, because that's what I had on hand, and I really liked the flavor.

They look yummy. Pam jam sounds good too.

Darn! Now you are going to make me dream of Pam Jam! ...I'm going to look awfully stupid when I get to the grocery store asking for Pan Jam, aren't I? LOL

Your cookies are pretty much perfect... and I'm not saying that only cause they're staring at me, but because I can hear them call my name...

Walnuts!! Great sub. I used almonds and loved the mild flavor.

Pretty little cookies.

Pam jam! How cute, I love traditions like that, and I bet it's super tasty in these thumbprints.

They spread alright.... but what a great spread! Love how they're nice and wide. Homemade jam - what a treat. Definitely going to try the jam next time - yours look so festive with the colorful jam and sugar dusting. It's like the holidays are here again!

So pretty. I wish mine would have spread a bit to even out when baking.

Your cookies look great! Mine spread a bit too and I was surprised that the instructions didn't include chilling the dough.

Wish I had a friend that made jam. Can I be friends with Pam?

Tracey said... [Reply to comment]

That jam sounds delicious!! I'm not a nut fan so these cookies weren't my thing, but they were a big hit with my family.

Walnuts, hazelnuts.. OH MY. Who knew a thumbprint could be so chic, so they aren't just for the holidays after all = )
