Thumb Print Cookies
I was going through my cupboard the other day and found a book of recipes that I forgot I had. It was one of those old write-your-own recipe kind of books. In it were tons of recipes of my moms and some from food network that I scribbled down as I watched (back before kids and when I had time to watch). I found this old recipe of my moms for thumb print cookies and my mouth instantly started watering. I love these cookies and I knew that they would go perfect with the jam I just made. This cookie is very similar to those butter crisp cookies you get at Christmas time in the tins... I seriously could eat a whole batch!
And while you are waiting for the cookies to bake and cool take some time to do a little bit for breast cancer awareness month!
There are a ton of really cool ways to help donate and spread awareness this month. One of my favorites is Ford Warriors in Pink. You can buy some super cute clothes and accessories and most of the money goes towards supporting the cause!!
Also my sister started Chemo last week and it has already started effecting her body. She is still trying to work to support her and her children through all of her treatments so any help would be greatly appreciated!
There is a Go Fund Me sight in her name.
And my Etsy shop, I am giving all proceeds this month to her!
There is also a scentsy sale this month that is donating directly to her as well!
