The Twelve Cookies of Christmas 2013 - Vanilla-Allspice Thumbprints

12 Cookies of Christmas 2013

Vanilla-Allspice Thumbprints




Thanks to Better Homes & Gardens magazine, I decided to give this tasty-sounding treat a whirl.  Their feature bragged about easy, last-minute cookies.  So how could I resist trying them?  I’m so glad I did!  Everyone who sampled this one really enjoyed it, and Kevin’s coworkers even asked for the recipe.

Vanilla-Allspice Thumbprints are indeed easy and do freeze well.  But I did not find them to be a quick bake.  According to the directions provided, they should be done in 9 minutes.  My batches took 14 to 15 minutes despite my oven being temperature-accurate.  So just make note that they could take you longer.

The simple spicy-sweet flavors of these thumbprints lend themselves to many great beverage pairings that can be found here.
