Assemble a beautiful holiday cookie tray using this traditional but easy cookie with many variations.
Heat oven to 350°F.
Separate eggs; place egg whites into bowl and egg yolks into large bowl. Beat egg whites with fork until foamy; set aside.
Place all remaining cookie ingredients in bowl with egg yolks. Beat at low speed, scraping bowl often, until mixture forms a dough.
Shape rounded teaspoonfuls of dough into 1-inch balls. Dip each into egg white; roll in nuts. Place 1 inch apart onto lightly greased cookie sheets. Make indentation in center of each cookie with thumb or back of teaspoon. Bake 8 minutes.
Remove cookies from oven; fill centers with choice of filling. Continue baking 6-10 minutes or until lightly browned. Remove to cooling racks. Cool completely.

We love these cookies! We try all types of combinations for the filling and what we roll it in (not everyone loves nuts) and it's always good.
Very good and tasty. Actually perfect and I will make these again for sure...BUT there is NO way this makes 5 dozen. It makes about 40-44 cookies at the most. Even small ones.
Same recipe I've used for years
I've been using this recipe for more than 30 years. The best cookie ever, hands down. Nearly my whole family has asked for the recipe!
I've made these cookies for the last 20 years, never get tired of it. I made it part of our holiday tradition! we can't get enough of it, we just have to make more!
I've made this recipe every year for at least 13 years. It is the most tender and delicious thumbprint cookie I've ever eaten.
It was very tasty because i liked how the outside was crunchy and the inside was chewy.

I admit it: I let my kids have chocolate cake for breakfast this week. Some of you are probably shocked and questioning whether I am fit to be a mom. However, I know there are a handful of “my people” who are saying, “See, I knew we could do this!”
Bring the bold flavors of
ginger and sesame to a
variety of meals.
