The holidays are definitely a time for indulgence and these classic thumbprints provide… but by tweaking a few of the ingredients, including use of whole wheat pastry flour, indulgences just got a little healthier.
Not too sweet but oh, so crunchy, these treats have a delightfully gritty texture and are the perfect accompaniment to a scoop of sorbet or ice cream.
Light and crispy, these beautiful and traditional cookies are often festooned with a simple red ribbon and hung on the tree awaiting the lucky taster and a cup of coffee or cocoa on Christmas morning.
The addition of bread flour to the dough adds structure, a whole grain flavor and a wonderful rustic texture to this holiday favorite. Wrapped in plastic, then foil, nut rolls freeze beautifully, and are always ready for when company stops in.
