Final TWD: Kids' Thumbprints

The Kids' Thumbprints are the last recipe in Baking: From My Home to Yours, and Dorie's hosting for us this week.  We tried the playing around version with the chocolate chips, and they're a cute little cookie! 

I joined TWD in October 2008, and I started this blog to join.  My first recipe with the group was the Lenox almond biscotti, and I got to try some things I'd never heard before like the blanc-manger and the dacquoiseBaking has given us some new favorites, and since this is the final TWD, I thought I'd share the recipes that were highlights for our family:

Pumpkin Muffins love the muffins made with butter, light and rich
Sweet Cream Biscuits so much easier than cutting in butter, and they rise reliably
Tiramisu Cake pretty cake, loved the mascarpone frosting
Tourtely Apple Tart  those apples and browned butter!
Rick Katz's Brownies for Julia favorite tall brownie, dense and rich
Tribute to Katherine Hepburn Brownie favorite thin brownie, reminded me of ones my parents made when I was a kid
Espresso Shortbread  not too sweet, and so quick and convenient to make ahead and freeze

I've so enjoyed the chance to bake along!

Fun to see your cookies, which look excellent and cute for sure, and to read about your favorites! Isn't it strange to add up all the weeks and figure out what were all doing in our lives all those times? Wow. October 2008 was a long time ago! :-)

I did the same exact thing with the choco chips... I thought they were the perfect little punctuation to these cookies. Congrats on making it through.

THose two chips look so wonderful! Funny, mine never melted either - so I switched to jam. What a wonderful ending recipe - along with others on your list - which I love as well!

Gorgeous thumbprints - and I think your favorites and mine mostly overlap! It's been fun baking with you and hope to see you in February when Baking with Julia starts up.

I started with TWD quite a bit after 2008 and I still have 21 recipes to bake! It's great to see a favorite's list--but so hard to choose! Happy baking in 2012.
