Looking for a lighter alternative to traditional Christmas cookies? Try these pretty jam-filled thumbprints. The melt-in-your-mouth treats have a buttery taste and get a nice crunch from chopped pecans.
Since we live in hazelnut country, I love making these special cookies for festive occasions. I usually bake two or three batches for parties and homemade gifts. They're yummy tasting and cute as can be!
My oldest son is a huge fan of these thumbprints, so I make sure they're on my baking list every Christmas. Lemon peel and poppy seeds help give this crisp cookie fantastic flavor. —Kelly Pember, Wheeler, WI
