These cookies are so easy to make and really fun. When you have kneaded the dough and it has rested, roll into balls. The balls shouldn´t be too big, a size of one teaspoon is great. When the balls are rolled, using your thumb or the end of a spatula, make an indent into each cookie. Then bake and fill the cooled thumbprints with jelly or jam. Mhhh delicious!
