Mini spinach pies in phyllo dough.... This was the only one left by the time I thought to take a picture. I have been wanting to make these for a while. I got the spinach to make them, phyllo dough... and ricotta cheese, mozarella.... When I got the cookbook out I didn't actually need all those ingredients. (I think they may have tasted better with them, though; now after eating them...) The recipe I used was similar to this one. Where I used to work every now and then I would do appetizers & cocktails. The spinach pies were sooo good. (We weren't supposed to eat the food, shhh....) When you stand out in the foyer smelling and staring at them all night, though (and you're starving since you didn't have dinner!) it is almost impossible. (Everyone did it, anyway... You just had to know who not to get caught by...) They threw away all the excess anyway (that was what really burned me...). If there was any extra special cookies or anything, you couldn't take them home for your kids, they just threw them away rather than have employees 'steal' the food.... Anyway!!! Don't know how I got off on that subject....

I have been wanting to make some jam thumbprints, too. I don't like nuts in my cookies, though. I have been trying to look for a recipe without nuts. Someday this week I'll probably make some with the kids. Here are some beautiful cookies on a tray. (Hope you weren't hungry....) Her recipe has nuts, too, though... Here's one recipe with no nuts. (No picture though.) Here's another one with no nuts. And a picture. Not as pretty as the first link, but... Hope you have a nice weekend.

I would love that spinach pie - I love veggies and I love cheese :)
I would not have guessed that you didn't like nuts...since I do love nuts!
