Almond Thumbprint Cookies filled with Mixed Red Berry Jam
Almond Thumbprint Cookies filled with Jam are so versatile. With a delicious base, you can add any type of jam to vary the flavors. These cookies were once my mom's Almond Christmas Crescents which I made for years. Now I make them into round thumbprint cookies - less work and less time!
