I love these, I make them every year. My daughter recently asked me if I would still be able to make and enjoy cookies now that I am diabetic and I told her with a few adjustments to the recipe I am still allowed to enjoy a few.

Great cookie. Love it. Quick note to evaziem. As you seem to hate all the recipes on this site, why don't you stay off it ?

This is highly irresponsible to suggest that these sugary, full of simple carbs recipes may be healthy for diabetics!

This is NOT a recipe for diabetics and not for those who do NOT want to become diabetic, period.

Love thumb print cookies, but I have always rolled mine in crushed walnuts, almonds or pecans and put a maraschino cherry in the middle instead of jelly. I always rinse and drain the cherries so they aren't really sweet.

If you replace 1/2 of the flour with almond flour you cut the carbs in half again. You just have to add about 1/4 teaspoon extra baking powder to make sure they rise. I use my homemade jam that is already low sugar, so that helps too.

Haven't made them yet..but want to know if I can use something other than Splenda for the sugar substitute…I have another type of diabetic sugar.

Oh YUM! Thanks for this one to replace my full carb/pre-diabetes "thumb print cookies"!
