12 Days of Cookies – Peanut Butter & Jam Thumbprints – Day 7

7 Dec

We are now just over halfway through the baking challenge and I must admit that today I found it difficult to be enthusiastic about baking cookies. See, we hosted a sparkling wine party last night for my sister’s birthday and it was awesome. Today, however, wasn’t as awesome as last night. Regardless, I pushed through and baked these little cuties.

Perhaps it was due to my slight hangover, but these didn’t end up looking much like the picture in the recipe. Hmmmph. My dough seemed a little dry and I think it might have been because I used a natural peanut butter. The dough ended up being a little crumbly and so when I tried to poke the hole in them, they sort of fell apart. I’m blaming the peanut butter and not my compromised state.

Besides the crumbly dough, this was an easy recipe to follow but you do need to let the dough chill for 2 hours, so plan ahead. The recipe called for strawberry jam but I’m a fan of raspberry so I switched it out. No biggie.

Side note: these cookies go out to Celeste. You asked, babe, I delivered.
