Thumbprint Cookies

I love brownies, chocolate chip cookies, basically all kinds of chocolate-related sweets. However, my all time favorite cookie is a simple thumbprint cookie filled with jam. Sometimes I fill it with peanut butter. Or Nutella. But the ones with jam are.. My jam.

I’m so sorry for that pun.
