Tuesdays with Dorie - Kids Thumbprint Cookies

I am a day late posting these.  Family just left yesterday from a fabulous holiday weekend.
This is the end to a wonderful journey through Dorie Greenspan's book Baking: From My Home to Yours by Dorie Greenspan.   I started with the group three and a half years ago.  The first year I participated every week, but then had a few slack off periods.  I missed my first opportunity to host but was able to host later on.  Dorie has been very encouraging to our group along the way.   I have learned so much from all the other bakers, and wonderful friendships have grown along the way.  I'm not a fabulous baker by any stretch, and a worse photographer, but it has been a journey I am glad I took.
The kids thumprints were very easy.  I chose not to roll them in chopped peanuts and I added some chocolate morsels to the centers instead of jam.  I love peanut butter and chocolate so it was a no brainer for me to do that.  
Be sure to check out the other bakers at http://tuesdayswithdorie.wordpress.com/
We will be starting a new book and group in February.  I received the book for Christmas and am anxious to flip through and check out the recipes.
Thank you to Laura and Julie for managing the group for four years!!  They did an excellent job.  And thank you to all the bakers in the group that encouraged me along the way with your sweet comments, emails and tweets.  Love you all!!  Happy New Year!!

This really has been a journey, hasn't it? It's been great to bake with you, and I'm happy to hear that you're joining the new group. I got the book for Christmas too, and I'm ready to dig in. Happy new year!

Peanut butter and chocolate is such a great combination! Not rolling them in nuts probably decreases the work time, I bet. Looking forward to baking with the new group next year.

It has been fun hasn't it . All of learning so much from Dorie and each other. Think what we would have missed!! Glad you are Baking with Julia. See you in Feb and on WWF!
Cookies look perfectly delicious.

I used chocolate too, seemed like the obvious choice. Your cookies look delish. I've enjoyed baking along with you all this time.

Definitely the end of an era. ;)
Life won't quite be the same. (Maybe I'll lose a few pounds. haha) Naw, probably not since I'll be doing BWJ, too!
Hope to see you then!
Happy New Year!

Hello from the other Peggy! So glad that your are baking along with the new book. Merry Baking in 2012!

Di said...

I skipped the nuts outside, too, since I knew my girls wouldn't eat them. I'm excited that you're going to do the next book!

Joanne said...

The thumbprint cookie has to be an all time favorite for everyone. They never seem to turn out bad. I'll have to check out Dories recipe.
Looking forward to seeing what you bake up from the new book.
Happy New Year!

I love that you made them with chocolate. Jam is nice but chocolate is the best. I look forward to seeing everything you make for Baking with Julia.
