Mango Chutney Thumbprint Cookies

Author Notes

This recipe is an adaptation from the jam-filled cookies my mother used to make when I was a kid. My mom did a lot of cooking from the Betty Crocker cookbook back then.

This version is great served with tea or wine after dinner. —Twice Cooked Half Baked
