Fingers will be all over these Thumb Print Cookies!!!

The recipe goes back to when I was in preschool! They are known in my house as Teacher Anne’s Thumb Print Cookies. Isn’t it funny how some recipes stay with you through the years? They are a favorite of my older son & one of my nephews but we all enjoy them, and my boys & nieces love making them.

We’ve been baking them gluten-free with GF Jules all-pupose flour for 7 years now and no one knows the difference! So yummy! Hope you like them as much as we do!
