Sparkling Lemon Drop Thumbprint Cookies are a wonderful addition to spring parties and picnics!
Second only to chocolate chip cookies, thumbprints are the most requested cookie from my friends and family. I make all different varieties, some with coconut, some with chocolate, yet most with jam centers.
There is something endearing about thumbprint cookies that keeps you coming back for more. I love the addition of the tangy-sweet lemon curd in these Lemon Drop Thumbprint Cookies, but it almost doesn’t matter what you fill them with.
Upon first bite of a thumbprint you think… Simple, nothing special or fancy here. Then you eat another, and another, trying to figure out how these no-frills cookies can be so addictive.
While pondering your explanation, you look down and discover you’ve just eaten the entire plate of cookies on your quest of unleashing their alluring secrets.
That’s just it! The fact that they are just butter cookies holding a little filling makes them irresistibly perfect.
Life’s greatest pleasures aren’t always luxurious or extravagant. Consider family picnics in spring, hiking down a mountain trail to a little-known waterfall, taking time to bask in the sun after a week of rain. I often find the simplest things can be the most gratifying!
Plus, thumbprint cookies are fun and easy for kids to make. What’s not to love?
These irresistible Lemon Drop Thumbprint Cookies are tender and buttery with a touch of lemon zest in the dough. They have a dollop of zingy lemon curd resting in the middle so that each bite offers a bit of contrast.
Once the Lemon Drop Thumbprint Cookies cool, they stack well, making them great for edible gifts and potluck take-alongs.
You are going to love these!
