My cookie adventures have taken me on an interesting windy road for the past few years! From chocolate to vanilla, sandwiched or flat, shaped in balls, rectangles, circles or shapes: Cookies are just the right size to hold in your hand and enjoy bite by bite. My next cookie feature is The Coconut Jam Thumbprint Cookies.

These aren’t your normal thumbprint cookies. This is Ina Garten’s recipe and it really is decadent. The rich buttery cookie is rolled in coconut and then flattened. You press the thumb in the center to create a well to show off your favorite jam!

And any jam will do, but definitely use a jam that is higher in quality. I think the more variety of jams on your plate, the better: strawberry, peach, apple butter, cherry, orange marmalade, even a dab of Nutella. Your little cookie nest will taste amazing.

And if your persnickity eater doesn’t like coconut? You can easily skip this step, too. I made this the first time for my daughter’s preschool and the parents were snatching the cookies of their kids’ plates! They really are beautiful looking cookies, and not to mention lip-smacking good!
