Thumbprint cookies

Yield: 1 servings

Measure Ingredient
(The red filling makes these look pretty and appropriate
At Christmas time. Kids love to make them.)
2 cups Sifted all-purpose flour
1½ teaspoon Baking powder
½ teaspoon Salt
1½ each Sticks (12 tablespoons) unsalted butter
⅔ cup Light brown sugar, firmly packed
⅓ cup Light corn syrup (e. g., Karo)
2 larges Eggs (1 whole, and 1 separated)
½ teaspoon Pure vanilla extract
3 tablespoons Whole milk or cream
1 each Egg white
2 tablespoons Water
1½ each (6 ounces) cups finely chopped pecans
Strawberry or raspberry jam

Sift together flour, baking powder, and salt. Set aside. Cream butter with sugar until soft and fluffy. Add corn syrup, whole egg, extra egg yolk, and vanilla. Blend thoroughly. Add reserved sifted dry ingredients alternately with milk, beginning and ending with dry ingredients. Continue mixing until smooth. Cover bowl with clear plastic wrap and refrigerate for about two hours. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Pour extra egg white and water into shallow bowl. Beat together with wire whisk or fork until smooth and syrupy. Pour nuts into another shallow bowl. Roll dough into approximately 72 1-inch balls. Dip each ball into egg white mixture, then roll in chopped nuts. Place 1½ inches apart on ungreased cookie sheets. Bake 5 minutes. Remove from oven. Using your thumb (or a thimble, for Thimble Cookies), make a depression in the center of each cookie.

Fill with jam. Bake 10 minutes longer. Cool on wire racks. Posted by: Virginia B. Sauer (NNMH30A) - Prodigy Reposted by: Debbie Carlson Submitted By DEBBIE CARLSON On 11-26-94
