Delicate, buttery and delicious. These cookies are an elegant take on the classic thumbprint cookie. The dough is rolled into logs, refrigerated, then cut into disks. The disks are baked in muffin tins, which gives them their perfect and uniform roundness. As soon as the cookies are pulled from the oven, a cork  is plunged into the center (hence “corked”) creating an indentation to deposit jam. 

I found that if I pushed too hard on the warm cookie, it could crack around the edges. No matter, they were still delicious.

Another great cookie from Dorie’s Cookies.
