Thumbprint Cookies and BFFs

I’M BACK!!  YEAH!!  What a long weekend without my computer!  😀

This post is dedicated to friendship.  Particularly to my dearest friend: Kris

I’m not too fond of this pic of me, but I love it that it’s a great pic of us, me and my bestie.

I went on a girlfriends getaway with her and my other dear friend, Cindy, and several other great ladies from CCC.  It was a wonderful weekend of reconnecting and cementing our friendships.  Me, being, well me….I brought Gooey Cinnamon Rolls to share.  Kris, being Kris, brought goody bags for those of us sharing a room.  My goody bag contained dark chocolate, awesome shiny lip gloss, pretty smelling body wash, a cute new drinking glass,  and these adorable socks:

Last week was a very long, difficult week for my bestie.  And well, since she’s my bestie, I won’t go into details.  But you can read for yourself on her blog.

And this brings me to today.  She loves, loves, loves Thumbprint Cookies.  So to cheer her up, I made them and drove allllllll the way out to her house in the boonies and surprised her with a bunch of these.

Thumbprint Cookies

  • 1 c butter (no substitutes)
  • 1/2 c powder sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 2 1/4 c flour
  • 1 c chopped pecans

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Cream butter, powdered sugar, vanilla, salt, and flour.  Mix in pecans.  Roll into balls and push down with thumb.  Bake for 6-8 minutes or until set but not brown.  Fill with favorite frosting.

It was worth it to see her smile and get a hug from her.  That’s what friends do.  Bring a smile.  Lend an ear.  Share a burden.  Wipe a tear (or two or three or 20).  Make them something with butter & powder sugar and flour and pecans and almond flavored frosting.

I love you, Kris!
