The recipe can be found in Barefoot Contessa Family Style or here at Food Network.
I made the recipe as written except that the red jam in the refrigerator was not raspberry! It was red currant so I used that as well as apricot jam.
I love shortbread, coconut and jams of all kinds so I really like these cookies. The Kitchen Gnome likes them and commented how the coconut had toasted and they had such a great flavor. My neighbor liked them and the gals at work liked them, too. I think this is a keeper!
Barefoot Bloggers have made two different kinds of cookies this month. Of the two, I cannot say that I prefer one over the other. In my mind, they serve two purposes, the Jam Thumbprint Cookies are tasty morsels and great for enjoying with a warm cup of coffee or tea in the afternoon. The Raisin Pecan Oatmeal Cookies are a good anytime snack! Both recipes will be saved!
This is a cookie with a subtle flavor.
It would be a nice treat, in the afternoon, with a cup of tea!
