Thimble cookies have always been a favourite of mine. I love to make them at this time of year and find it pretty easy to round up a helper to do the thimble imprints.The dough is so simple with only a few ingredients. I like to use fresh lemon juice in them.
We roll them in ground walnuts - the walnuts come right from our very own tree. Then make an imprint in them with a thimble so that we have a spot to fill with jam.Bake them and then fill them with our own jam or jelly. I always use raspberry, blackberry or currant - I like that bit of berry tartness with the sweetness of the cookie.
Here is a link to a recipe that is the same as the one I use. If you decide to make them then make sure to double the recipe. ;-)
