I made this recipe back in the summer for a family reunion. They were addicting and delicious. The thumbprints are a play off of the classic kid sandwich: peanut butter and jelly. You get double dose of peanuts: some in the dough and then you roll them in chopped peanuts. The texture was great!
You can find the recipe on Dorie’s blog. She wrote a wonderfully, sweet post about the beauty of our online baking community, Tuesdays with Dorie. I myself have had a handful of interactions with Dorie—she is as sweet as her treats and as genuine as they come. If you would have told me three years ago that the author of my favorite cookbook would comment on my blog and respond to emails, I wouldn’t have believed you.
I can’t say it enough. Thank you Dorie for teaching me to bake. Thank you Laurie for starting a group that I am so proud to be part of.
Check back here later this week for some delicious catch-up photos (I think there are around 50!) and some wrapping up thoughts.
Update: I posted my catch-ups: 42! Wowza.
