This is a little playful recipe. Thumbprints are a holiday favorite, but they also provide a canvas for so many possibilities. That is why I decided to do this recipe. Your mind thinks, ”Oh sweet!” Well, if you choose the blue one, yes, but red is another thing. We have the traditional cookie, but we have a twist, two fillings; Erin’s Elderberries provided the sweet, and Abundant Acres Farm provided the heat. I hope you like it.
1 3/4 cup flour
3/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
