Looking for a cookie recipe perfect for Summer? Check out these jam filled thumbprint cookies!
I love the flavors of Summer like blueberries, strawberries, peaches and more. One of my favorite things to do is make homemade jam with some of the fresh fruits we get from the farmer’s markets. We put that jam on everything from waffles to cookies! I remember loving jam thumbprint cookies when I was younger but hadn’t made them much in my adult life.
