Holiday Thumbprint Cookies

I love Thumbprint Cookies, and they're so easy to make. Betty Crocker has two great recipes that can be made festive by adding holiday sprinkles and holiday Hershey's kisses. These are the perfect cookies to give or keep! And, I'll bet Santa would love a plate after his long ride.
