Monday calls for cookies! Right?
Remember that apple butter I made a couple weeks back? These Apple Butter Thumbprint Cookies were the inspiration behind that. I needed these cookies.
Before we get to that, how was your weekend? My husband was supposed to be in the field (he’d been out all last week) but he showed up at the door at 11 pm on Friday night – so that was a fun surprise. Then I spent most of the weekend watching a cooking Youtube channel that the bestie got me hooked on and impulse buying gourmet peanut butter.
It’s what I do.
So about the cookies.
I love a thumbprint cookie. You’ve got a cookie but then you’ve also got a sweet gooey filling. They’re like tiny pies.
These taste like fall. The cookies are made with crushed walnuts in the dough and walnuts are a fall nut to me. Is that weird? Plus all the cinnamon in the apple butter. I mean, I know it’s 98 degrees outside (gahhh Texas, whyyyyy?!) but if you turn your air down enough, you may be able to pretend it’s not stupid hot out there.
