I had a request for the Thumbprint Cookies recipe from a 1950s Betty Crocker Cookbook. Here's the recipe as it appears in my 1956 edition. My comments: Any kind of jelly or jam can be used on these cookies. Sparkling Jelly was from the 1950s.
Sift together and stir in
Roll into 1" balls. Dip in slightly beaten egg whites. Roll in finely chopped nuts (3/4 cup). Place about 1" apart on ungreased baking sheet and press thumb into center of each. Bake until set. Cool. Place in thumbprints a bit of chopped candied fruit, sparkling jelly, or tinted confectioners' sugar icing.
