These cookies were, very surprisingly, not chosen until the end. Dorie Greenspan, herself, is the host this week.
These are thumbprint cookies with a twist. Thumbprint cookies are pretty much what they sound like. You use a thumb (or in this case awooden spoon) to make an indentation in an unbaked cookie. It leaves a lovely dent that begs to be filled with jam or chocolate. These are a little over the top because the base cookie is peanut butter. Peanut butter cookies are The Husband's favorite cookie. He was very happy with the choice. She goes a step further and has us coat the dough balls in peanuts.
The coating was very messy and also very delicious. I did get lazy, though, and only coated the first batch. I used strawberry jam for some of the cookies and chocolate chips in others. For the last few - especially for the husband - I used some single malt Scotch marmalade. Yes, we do have that in our fridge. He was even happier.
Here is an array of all the cookies.

Then I realized that my dish and the cookies looked slightly alien-like. I needed to add to the image. ;-)
Thank you all for baking along, cheering me along, and sharing all the treats. Dorie has the final hosting post here. Have a wonderful, happy, healthy, and sweet new year!
