We made some Strhubarb Jam the other day, and then decided to make thumbprint cookies for Ladder 146 down the street who lost Firefighter Pujdak last week.

The Recipe is:

My Great-Grandma’s Thumb Print Cookies

Easy, fast

1 c. Spry (Crisco)
1/2 c brown sugar
1 egg
2 c flour

Cream Crisco and sugar thoroughly. Add egg and mix. Add flour. If you can – without refrigerating – roll into balls about the size of a quarter. Place on cookie sheet allowing for spreading. Press thumb into each ball and add jam – or a large choc chip or a cherry into each depression. Bake at 350º for 12-15 minutes.
