It was a good friend’s going away party and I wanted to make something that he didn’t have to pack, so cookies seemed like the natural choice. Party + me having a lot of jam on hand = thumbprint cookies. I heart this friend so I made heart-shaped cookies and told him that he would have to leave these hearts in San Francisco. (Not cheesy at all). I also heart pistachios and thought they would add nice color, taste, and texture so I rolled the dough in ground pistachios. Here’s the recipe I based them off of and instructions to make them heart shape (no cookie cutter needed). I used three different jams: strawberry, pluot cardamom, and a triple citrus marmalade. Yum!
