Cookie Swap: Jam Thumbprint Cookies

The annual NEO Christmas Cookie swap is back! Lamia and I are so excited because it’s an excuse to bake. And the boy is happy because he willingly plays the part of the taste-tester. I’m starting this year’s swamp with a cookie my mother has been making for a long as I can remember.
