Kid's Thumprint Cookies- The Very Last Tuesdays with Dorie Recipe and Goodbye from me!

I made these kid's thumbprints to celebrate the last week of Tuesdays with Dorie. TWD is/was a baking blog started by the wonderful blogger, Laurie Woodward. She decided to bake a different recipe from Dorie Greenspan's book Baking every single week until she baked through the entire thing. I joined later in 2008 and have made almost every single recipe in the whole book. I have met wonderful people both online and in person and really improved my baking skills. I am so happy I participate in this group and am grateful to Dorie Greenspan for writing a book that added so much joy to my kitchen and my family/friends. This week, I decided to actually bake and post in the same week. (I filled them with Sarabeth's strawberry jam and loved the combo of the sweet jam and crunchy nuts. It is a testament to the strength of the book that the last recipe chosen was as good as the first.) I have been a lazy blogger recently and have been cooking the books but not photographing them or writing them up. I am so busy now with my regular non-blogging life that I will continue with French Fridays with Dorie (where we cook through Around my French Table) and Baking with Julia (where will bake through this book, starting in February of 2012) but won't be blogging about it publicly anymore. I look forward to following all of the other bloggers online and learning even more skills as I follow along silently at home. As Laurie always says to us on the Tuesdays with Dorie web site, "Bake on!" Hugs to all!!!!!
