The second half of dough made from Dairy, Egg and Peanut/Tree Nut Free Chocolate Chip Snowball cookies can be used to make and bake Dairy, Egg and Peanut/Tree Nut Free Thumbprint Cookies.

Two types of cookies from one batch of dough…perfect!

My favourite jam for the centre was either apricot or raspberry…these have been filled with my boys favourite jam…homemade strawberry.
