DIBS Recipe Number Two

Just a recap below you will find the explanation of DIBS and my recipe for Banana Bread which is the biggest DIBS item in my house.

Snack size bag filled with 1 cup sugar
Quart size bag filled with 1 1/2 cups flour, 1 Tbsp baking powder, 1/2 tsp salt, and 3/4 tsp baking soda

The next recipe selected for my DIBS is my Grandmother's recipe for Dream Cookies also known by others as Thumbprint Cookies.


PreHeat oven to 300 degrees

2 c. flour
1 c. sugar
1 c. shortening
1 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. vanilla extract
favorite jelly or hersey kisses

DIBS setup
snack size bag- 1 c. sugar
quart size bag- 2 c. flour and 1 tsp baking powder

Cream together shortening and sugar then add vanilla extract. Slowly mix in the dry ingredients (premixed in the quart size DIBS bag) until mixed through. Roll into small dough balls, place on an ungreased cookie sheet, and press thumb into the middle to make a small well in each ball. I fill mine with Smuckers Seedless Strawberry Jam but you can use any kind of jellies or chocolates you desire. Place in a 300 degree oven for about 20 minutes. The larger the cookie the longer they will need to be in for. The bottoms will have a light golden color to them . Place on a cooling rack to cool before eating!!! When my sister puts these on a dish she sometimes sprinkles them with powdered sugar to make them look festive, kind of like snow fell on them!!

I hope you are enjoying the DIBS process!!!
