Here is a quick, simple, and good recipe for Rosenmunnar, a type of Swedish thumbprint cookie. It's a buttery tasting dough with a dollop of jam in the middle. We used our own jam made of raspberries from our garden in the Fenway as well as some fancy strawberry jam we bought at the store. Both were great.
1/2 cup butter, softened
1/4 cup sugar
1 cup sifted all-purpose flour
1/4 cup any flavor fruit jam
1. Cream butter & sugar together
2. Add sifted flour
3. Roll dough into 1 inch balls. Place on a cookie sheet. Press your thumb in the middle of the ball to create a divot in which to put some of the fruit jam. Fill the divot with the fruit jam. Depending on the jam type, you will need to alter the amount so it doesn't bubble over, out of the cookie. Although, this does create a nice homemade look if it does happen so don't worry about it too much.
4. Bake 15 minutes at 375 degrees or until golden brown around the edges.
Makes about 20 cookies
