Pecan Thumbprint cookies

I’ve been making thumbprint cookies for as long as I’ve been baking. From the classic peanut butter cookies with Hershey’s kisses, to every kind of jam and jelly-filled goodie you can think of. They always make me think of Christmas.

The pecan thumbprint cookie is rolled in crushed walnuts before baking. This gives the cookies a delicious crunch. This recipe is very gently adapted from these vegan cookies on my friend Gina’s blog.

Over the last two years, this recipe has become an annual tradition in our household. I get rave reviews from friends who don’t eat gluten or dairy. The recipe was long overdue to be saved for future baking. But all credit must go to Gina, who created the original.

It’s always fun to make thumbprint cookies with kids, as we all get to use our favorite jams. This time, my nieces chose strawberry or raspberry jam. Apricot jam is usually my favourite. We all win.
