Kids Thumbprints for TWD


 This is the last installment for the Tuesday With Dorie group. I would love to give a big Thank You to everyone that has been a part of this group.  It has been such fun baking along with you for the last three years.  I have totally enjoyed every minute of it.  I have baked things that I never would have tried if it hadn't been for you.  I have had great successes along with a few failures but I feel that I have grown as a baker from the experience.  I have been able to share lots of goodies with family, friends and co-workers. I have been through pounds of butter and chocolate and I have loved every minute of it.


 The last recipe chosen was a wonderful cookie, Kids Thumbprints, and it was chosen by Dorie herself.  I filled half the cookies with blackberry jam and the other half with chocolate chips.  Both were really good.  The ones filled with jam tasted like mini  PB&J's. 

 While I really enjoyed making all the fancy cakes and tarts, I most enjoyed the cookies and brownies.  Thank you Dorie for giving us such simple, easy to follow instructions.  It has made baking through Baking From My Home to Yours a joy. It has been a wonderful journey.

Delicious cookies! I've been toying with the idea of tabulating the amount of butter, flour, sugar, and chocolate that we used, but it makes me nervous. ;-)

PB&C combo is my favorite - hands down, but the jam version was perfect too! Looks wonderful and so glad we all enjoyed this TWD experience!

So sad that it's over...but what a way to end it, with such pretty and tasty cookies!

I think I agree with you about the cookies and the brownies being the best. At least they are the ones that I make over and over again. Like you, I've also really enjoyed stretching myself as a baker and gaining confidence to bake tarts and flan and pots de creme! Happy Baking in 2012!
