Before you waste an entire afternoon searching for —Stop. We've already found the perfect recipe for you.
With more than 240,000 pins, these classic thumbprint cookies are officially the most popular holiday cookie on Pinterest this year.
Adapted from a recipe, these cookies from the blog are so buttery and tender they melt right in your mouth. But the best part? They only require six ingredients, making them basically fool-proof.
Amy Dong, the blogger behind the site, became so obsessed with these cookies the first time she had them that she couldn't wait for her friend to email her the recipe. "I immediately tore out a piece of paper and scribbled the recipe by hand, right out of her binder," she wrote in her post about the treats.
If that's not reason enough to give these cookies a try, we don't know what is.
