This is the final week for Tuesdays with Dorie baking through Baking from My Home to Yours. Every recipe in the book has been selected and we are finished with the book. Dorie Greenspan herself chose this last recipe: Kids’ Thumbprints . Dorie is the host this week so you can get the recipe on her blog. Of course, make sure that you visit the Tuesdays with Dorie site and see how all of the bakers did this week with the last recipe.
I joined Tuesdays with Dorie in 2008 and my first recipe was posted on September 9, 2008: Chocolate Malted Whopper Drops. I’ve had the opportunity to select two recipes: Chewy Chunky Blondies and Far Breton. I’ve made 167 recipes for Tuesdays with Dorie and I’ve learned a lot. I’ve made things that I never would have tried before. I’m very good at making custard now. And I’m willing to try baking new things because I feel much more confident in my baking skills. This group has been wonderful, and I’m looking forward to next year when we start baking through another Dorie book.
These thumbprints are peanut butter cookies, rolled in chopped peanuts and filled with jam or jelly. I used concord grape jelly because I couldn’t think of a more kid friendly combo than PB and grape jelly. I never used to be a fan of thumbprints, but I’ve tried a number of versions now that I like. I like these: the peanut butter cookie is crunchy and the grape jelly has a distinct flavor that can’t be beat. Another great recipe from Dorie and I can’t wait for more to come.
