We’re going back and forth between cookies and soup this week. On Tuesday, I told you about the new Hershey’s Spreads and I hinted at this recipe. Then yesterday, I shared Pineapple Chili with you. Today, I bring you the cookie recipe I teased you with on Tuesday. And tomorrow, I’ve got a brand new slow cooker soup for you.
As far as I’m concerned, we could go on switching between cookies and soup for a long time! They are two of my favorites.
My mom used to make thumbprint cookies every Christmas. She filled hers with green and pink icing. Pink, because the red food coloring never coaxed the color all the way to red. I love her thumbprint cookies. But for some reason, I’ve never made them myself.
When the Hershey’s Spreads came in the mail, I knew they would be perfect to fill thumbprint cookies. And because sweet is made even better by a little salty taste, I added a sprinkle of kosher salt to the tops. It makes them look extra special too.
Since I didn’t have the recipe, I called mom on the phone. She flipped through her pile of hand-written recipes to find it for me. I scribbled the recipe in pencil. It felt like old-fashioned times (you know, like 10 years ago, when we weren’t in the habit of searching up recipes online).
