    I was so excited about this recipe. They were so pretty and fun to make and most of my guests ate them. If I had tasted them before the party though, I wouldn't have served them. I thought they tasted like feet or dog kibble. My husband swears they were good. He's either just being nice or I was the odd man out. For the price of gruyere and the many other great recipes Martha offers, I won't make them again.

    dear kristamozina: The thumbprints can be partially prepared ahead and then frozen. Form and bake thumbprints as directed in steps 1 to 3. Transfer to wire racks to cool before inserting cheese cubes; place on clean baking sheets, and freeze until firm, about one hour, before freezing in airtight containers, up to six weeks. To serve, remove from freezer and bake (without thawing) in a 425-degree oven for about 15 minutes.

    They say in the comments that this is freezable. How does that work? Before baking or after?

    Perfect and delicious! Shockingly quick and easy too. Get all of your ingredients and supplies ready to go, and then rock it! I'm supposed to be taking them to a party (and I am!), but I can't stop eating them!

    These were absolutly delicious . Everyone loved them and requested the recipe.. Easy to make . Our grandson who is 10 helped but found it difficult to use a pastry bag with tip so we ended up using a rounded teaspoon full just as you would if you were making cookies and then thumbprinted those before baking. Thank you for the great recipe.
