Jam Thumbprint Cookies

Last weekend, the weather was gorgeous and Megan and I were hanging out with nothing to do. So we went to the Farmer's Market!  As a kid, my mom used to make Strawberry Rhubarb Crisp a lot, and I loved it, so when I saw this ... 

I had to buy some!  Then I remembered that Garrett and I both hate toast, and therefore not much jelly is eaten at our house. Oops.

BUT, today, while looking through one of my favorite cooking websites, I found the recipe for these delicious cookies.

(P.S. this is not my recipe. It is from  Their recipes are SO GOOD.)

The best part about these cookies is that they only take 4 ingredients, which you probably already have.

You will need:
1/4 of a cup of sugar, + 2 Tablespoons
2/3 of a cup of flour
4 tablespoons of melted butter

Mix the 1/4 cup of sugar and the butter together with a fork.
Next, add the flour. (I added a little water too, because the dough was super crumbly.)  At this point I had cookie dough all over my hands, so I skipped a couple steps worth of pictures.

Put the 2 Tablespoons of sugar in a small bowl.  Roll 1 inch balls of dough in the sugar, and put on a GREASED cookie sheet.  Then, using your thumb, push down the ball of dough so that there is a "well" in the cookies.

Bake at 350 for 12-14 minutes.  Once they are done, leave them on the cookie sheet to cool. Before serving, spoon any kind of jam into the well of each cookie!  This makes 10 cookies, perfect for 2 people. Then, try not to eat them all before your best friend gets home from work. That's the tricky part.
