I'm trying not to eat sweets. My kids don't need more cookies at this time of year. My husband won't eat any non-chocolate dessert. And I knew my mother-in-law was about to arrive with a carload of goodies.
But when the urge strikes, how can you deny it? My Twitter friend @amy_i pointed me to a recipe for jam thumbprint cookies on her blog Playing House. Normally I make a shortbread dough for thumbprint cookies, but Amy's dough has cream cheese, eggs and leavening, and the final cookies are pretty soft. I filled them with homemade quince jam and fed them to some happy kids. I even snuck a few.
