It’s was my pick this week for Martha Mondays and I knew from October that I wanted to do these thumbprint cookies. The reason? Well, I made them in October and they were a disaster. They were wonderful in taste but far too crumbly and unfortunately they ended up being eaten by us at home rather than being sold for a charity event.
Anyway, I braved up and prepared myself to make these again. The recipe is easy and the pecans are one of my favourite ingredients. I can never make the imprint in the biscuits last, even after using the end of a wooden spoon but they were certainly better than last time.
My calculation is that there is no way to make 4 dozen from the recipe. I will manage to do 36 at a push (I have frozen half the dough). But I will make these again and again. They were a perfect treat after decorating the house for Christmas.
