Thumbprints for Us Big Guys

Recipe #2 ~ Thumbprints for us Big Guys. I chose to go with a cherry almond flavor combination, as that's what I had available. The texture of the cookie was awesome, however, I will definitely play around with a few things to perfect it next time around. For one, I made them too big initially. I prefer more of a bite-size cookie, one that you don't feel quite so guilty about snagging 4 or 5. As you can see, there are a few little guys near the back of the photo.....a much more manageable size! And secondly, I would choose a better quality jam for the middle. I just used a Smuckers cherry preserve and I found it to be a little on the sweet side, with not enough tart. And I found the shaping of the cookie to be a little more time consuming than I would have liked, as well as having to deflate the indention a bit after baking. I used my handy-dandy mini tart tool from Pampered Chef! However, had I done them smaller in the first place, it may not have been such a big deal. So the toasted coconut custard tart came in first place, but these little babies have definitely got some potential!
