                                                  Thumb Print Cookies

   Kids will love making these cookies because they can roll the dough and squish their thumbs in it, which made the cookie uniquely theirs.  The game is --they have to find and eat the cookies with their own thumb print!

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

Ingredients:

1/2 cup light brown sugar
1 cup butter, room temperature
2 large eggs, separated
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 cups all purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/4 cups finely chopped pecans (optional)
your favorite jams or preserves

Prep:
Cream together brown sugar and butter; beat in egg
yolks and vanilla.  Stir in flour, baking soda, and
salt.  Shape dough into 1-inch balls. 

If you want to add pecans, dip the balls into egg white and roll in pecans.

Place cookies about 1" apart on un-greased baking sheet; press thumb deeply in center of each.  If you like, have the kids choose their own jam/preserves to put on top.

Bake until light brown, about 10 minutes.  Immediately remove from cookie sheet and cool thoroughly. 
Makes 5 to 6 dozen.
