Jewel Thumbprints

Christmas is only five days away, and I have so many more cookies I want to bake!  I got started last night with a recipe from my Grandma Jean for jewel thumbprint cookies.  These were always a holiday staple in my house as a kid, but I have not made them in years.  We always made them with red currant and green apple mint jelly and they looked so festive.  I didn't find any currant jelly (take note, Whole Foods!), so I went with concord grape jelly.  While they're not the classic red and green for Christmas, these little jewels are just as delicious in purple!  Thanks, mom, for sending the recipe!
