Rated 5 out of 5 by from Favorite cookies Instead of thumb prints, I use this recipe but shape the dough with mini cookie cutters and skip the jelly step. I've made them for many occasions and everyone always loves them. I've also added icing and sugar crystals on top.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing! These cookies are amazing! The rich almond flavor with the sweet strawberry rhubarb spread is a combination you won't be able to limit to just one or two. I used the back of a measuring spoon to make the indent then filled using the same spoon so that the indent was even and perfectly filled. Would highly recommend this recipe.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic with a great almond taste! I made these according to the recipe and they tasted great, but on my second batch, I baked them on parchment paper and only cooked them for 12 minutes. My first batch was burnt on the bottoms, so this definitely helped them to be done to perfection! They were a HUGE hit!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from These are my favorite! I baked these as part of my cookie sampler package and I have come back to buy more pound cake mix as I love these! I cannot get enough of the perfect texture with just a hint of sweetness. These are amazing!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great flavor! A little too much spreading though. These are great cookies. They spread a little too much for my liking but will definitely make again.
