Don't you love it how you gain the neatest recipes through people whose paths you may only shortly cross? This came from my brother's speech therapist when we were really little. This is one of my favorite Christmas cookies.
In my opinion, these are not your run-of-the-mill thumbprint cookies! They have such a rich flavor. I used to only make them at Christmas but I've made them some through the year for special occasions for a couple of years now. Every time I do, people really comment on them.1 cup butter softened (no substitutes)
