Jam and Walnuts Thumprint Cookies

Jam-filled Thumbprint cookies have always been a big favorite on holiday cookie trays.  In my opinion, a good thumbprint cookie is buttery, with a touch of sweetness that pairs well with a not-too-sweet jam.  Favorite jam flavors include apricot, raspberry, or currant.   It is nice to use a variety of jams in a batch of cookies.  Using a variety of jams will look attractive on your cookie tray.
