Cookie Fails
I wanted to make some of those jam thumbprint cookies. But after I had made the dough I decided that I didn't want to go through all the rolling of the little dough balls, chilling, thumbprints, and all that. So I dumped the crumbly dough onto a cookie sheet, dropped spoonfuls of strawberry preserves and used a butter knife to spread the preserves like frosting.
They definitely did not turn out like cute thumb print cookies, they are sort of crumbly and not very presentable. I could not invite the Queen of England over for tea and cookies right now with these cookies but I hear she has her hands full right now anyway.
But they are extremely delicious!

Preheat oven to 320

2 sticks butter left out until soft
1 cup confectioners sugar
Cream together until fluffy
Add: 2 tsp vanilla, 1 heaping tbsp sour cream or sour cream powder, 2 egg yolks
2 cups flour
Mix just until combined, dough will be crumbly
Dump dough onto large cookie sheet. Spread it around and then pat it down.
Drop spoonful of strawberry preserves on top of dough then use butter knife to spread around.
Bake for 18 minutes. Bake time is crucial as the dough has butter which can burn so don't get on the internet and look at sale pages

Take out and set to cool. Sprinkle with 1 cup confectioner's sugar. Cut into 1.5 inch squares.

Sounds pretty good! I'm not into long, drawn out recipes any longer, so I get it. I think I will try it, but melt some little chocolate chips and then spread that like you did the strawberry preserves. Thanks!

and here I thought I was going to read about some issues with the windows 10 update or the phase out of windows 7.

I would venture to say that 9 out of 10 people on this site can do a better job explaining Windows than I can. But after decades of practice, I'm blessed with mostly delicious results cooking and baking.

I made an uber expensive cheesecake once that looked like it fell off 4 foot counter space but I had rave reviews on taste. A year later though I remade after learning a few tips and the thing was almost too pretty to eat. Half kiwi and half strawberry with lemon filling. Designed like the yin yang symbol.
