Hi everyone, as you can see I have not posted since last wednesday as I was busy with the activities of the season! I was attending a neighbourhood Christmas party, Christmas shopping, attending the Christkindl Market in Kitchener and baking of course.
Check out the Christkindl Market at http://www.christkindl.ca a wonderful activity for the whole family in Kitchener, Ontario Canada- try to attend it next year! This market had hand made baked goods, quality handcrafts, wonderful food and music and was a nice way to launch my husband and I into the Christmas spirit.
Classic Thumbprint Cookies

- 1 egg yolk
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 2/3 cup raspberry jam (or your choice)
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
Preheat oven to 300 degrees and grease a cookie sheet.
Cream sugar with butter, mix in add egg and vanilla. Sift flour and salt in a separate bowl. Mix dry ingredients with wet. Form into balls about 1" in diameter. place 2" apart on cookie sheet and press with your thumb to make an indent in the centre of each cookie, add raspberry jam and bake for approximately 13 minutes or until edges of cookies look like they are golden brown. Makes about 24 small cookies. Delicate, delicious and crispy with the bright taste of raspberry jam - yum!
Enjoy and Happy Monday!
