Cranberry Almond Thumbprint Cookies
I hope you all had a good weekend! Ours was filled with a “Burnett holiday extravaganza”! Which means gingerbread cookie making, Christmas music, games, and movies with the family 🙂
I’ve said it before but I love this time of year! The weather gets colder but people get warmer. It is amazing how hearing Christmas music or the little bells ringing outside of a store can make people so much nicer to each other!
My mom and dad have always filled their home with so much joy and fun. Maybe it is because they had four crazy kids to keep entertained?! Regardless, they have instilled in me how important it is to laugh and find joy in the simplest of things. I cannot tell you how much fun we all have when we are together anyway, but throw in some gingerbread men to decorate and the game Heads Up and it is a full out party.
So in the spirit of gingerbread men.. Tis the season for some cookies!
I love thumprint cookies partly because I am a sucker for any kind of jam but mostly because they are so cute.
These thumbprint cookies and icing are made with an almond extract and instead of a jam filling I used none other than cranberry sauce!
So simple and so cute. These cookies will be the perfect addition to a cookie swap or holiday party!
“May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in Him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.”
