  1. The thumbprint cookies are just too cute! They instantly brought me back to my Memere’s kitchen. She was *known* for her thumbprint cookies. Hot out of the oven = bliss. 😀

    And the cupcakes are adorable! 😀

  2. I made lemon rosemary cookies a few weeks ago and happened to make a strawberry preserve a couple days later. I combined the two and it was heavenly. Didn’t even know your thumbprint cookie recipe existed but apparently we’re on the same page there! Soo good 🙂
