Are you a procrastinator like me? I am such a procrastinator.. once again I left my Fill the Cookie Jar post until the last minute. You would think I would get them done a head of time.. but no, last day busy baking and fingers crossed that my cookies turned out....

I decided to have a cookie exchange this year and was going through my recipes for different cookies that I could make. I really wanted to make sand tarts but was very got frustrated trying to make them as the cookies didn't want to come out of the tart shells... so decided to make thumbprint cookies instead with the dough. These cookies taste like short bread cookies with jam... I had gotten some royal fig preserve from my Foodie Pen Pal and thought this was perfect for these cookies. The recipe I received from my cousin and I am not sure where she got it from.
Shortbread Thumbprint Cookies
1 cup margarine
2/3 cup sugar
2 1/2 cup flour
jam/jelly/preserve (I used Royal Fig Preserve)
Icing ( made of 1 tsp butter, 1 cup powdered sugar and enough milk to make icing runny)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees
Whip margarine and sugar together. Add eggs and beat until fluffy. Add flour slowly and beat until ingredients are mixed. Roll dough into 1 inch balls, place on cookie sheet. Press thumb in center of cookie. Add approximately 1 tsp of jam/jelly/preserves into thumbprint mark. Bake for 5 - 7 minutes. Cool cookies on baking rack. Once cookies are cooled, drizzle icing over them.
