Jammy Almond Thumbprint Cookies

Jammy Almond Thumbprint Cookies

Christmas cookie time is coming! I love having a selection of cookies to share with families and friends during the Christmas season. In fact, I’m even joining a Christmas cookie exchange this year. Every year I have my “must make” favourites like No Bake Peanut Butter Cornflake Cookies and Old Fashioned Iced Sugar Cookies Recipe but I like to add a few new recipes too. This year, it’s these Jammy Almond Thumbprint cookies and I’m sharing the recipe so you can try them too. They are similar to my Old Fashioned Thumbprint Cookies with the added yumminess of ground almonds.
