Blueberry Shortbread Thumbprints

I can remember helping my grandma make thumbprint cookies as young child. Getting to smash each little ball was fun! I decided that a nice shortbread cookie would be good with some Blueberry jam baked into the centers. These are great year round but were created to go in my Christmas cookie collection that I make every holiday season. I hope you enjoy these blueberry shortbread thumbprints as much as we did.
