Holiday Shortbread Thumbprints Recipe


Thumbprints are classics, and dozens of versions appear on holiday buffets and Christmas cookie trays every year. Most versions contain real butter, and these Holiday Shortbread Thumbprints are no exception. While some thumbprint cookies are rolled in nuts, these have a luscious filling of nuts, along with coconut and cream cheese. They have become a family favorite over the last few years, and are a welcome treat for guests. Holiday Shortbread Thumbprints are always included in the packages sent to out-of-town friends and family because not only are they attractive, they travel well and don’t break easily.

Since the recipe makes a lot, you’ll have plenty to eat and share with friends and family. Store them in an airtight container for a couple of weeks, or freeze for longer storage.
