Tuesday: Tooties wiff Taffrin

Woke to find no eggs in the fridge this morning, but that was NOT going to stop me from keeping this tradition.

Today we made Jam Thumbprints. To be honest, the girls weren't overly thrilled with them. They're not as sugary or gooey as they like. They're a shortbread cookie, but I put some glaze on top. Here's the recipe:

Preheat the oven to 350^.

In a mixing bowl, combine:
1 C. butter
2/3 C. sugar
Cream together and add:
1 tsp. vanilla
Mix together and gradually add:
2 C. flour
Mix until the dough forms a ball.

Ideally, at this point, you should refrigerate the dough so that it's easier to handle, but we didn't, and it was just fine.

Roll dough into 1" balls and push with your finger to make a well. Put a small dollop of jam into the well.

Bake for 14 minutes.

While they're baking, mix together:
1 C. powdered sugar
a bit of water (enough to make a glaze consistency)
1 tsp. vanilla

Once the cookies are out of the oven, drizzle with glaze.

We all sat down and enjoyed some hot chocolate with our cookies.
