Easy Bake Skipper Thumb Print Cookies

1 Tbsp. powdered sugar
2 Tbsp. butter
1/4 tsp. vanilla extract
1/2 tsp. water
1/4 cup all-purpose flour

Mix powdered sugar, butter, vanilla, water and flour. Roll the dough between your fingers and make 12 small balls, about a 1/2 inch each. Place a few balls at a time on an ungreased sheet or pan with space between them. Press your thumb into the middle of each ball to make a thumb print. Bake 10 to 12 minutes, then remove. Repeat until all the cookies are baked. When the cookies are cool, fill each thumb print with jelly. Makes 12 cookies.

  1. Great job as usual Joy. Hope my granddaughter doesn't see it.

  2. What a fantastic Barbie/Skipper set!! So adorable.
    I was a huge Barbie fan with 42 Barbie cases and 130 Barbies but I don't ever remember seeing the books. I guess I was too busy keeping house with my Barbie's to read!!
    Thanks so much for sharing them and the recipe.

  3. I never had a Skipper doll.. I only had Barbie and I actually had a talking Barbie that I wish my little brothers had never played with.

    That little rolling pin is so cute and the little vintage kitchen-- well, vintage now.
