Thumbprint Goodness!

One of my favorite blogs is Katie's and when I was looking for recipes for my Christmas Cookie Boxes I knew she would have a great one. And I was right her Raspberry Almond Thumbprint Cookies were delicious! I made one batch with Raspberry Preserves and another with Blueberry Preserves and they were both great, except mine didn't come out as cute as Katie's. Thanks Katie!
