Could-be-vegan Thumbprint Cookies

After my blueberry picking adventure in Roscoe, NY, I made jam. For some reason, one jar did not seal properly when I processed it, so I am trying to use it as soon as possible. I thought...jam tart? blueberry newtons? And then I came across this awesome recipe on Post Punk Kitchen and altered it so as to make it NOT vegan. haha. Here's what I did, and these cookies are rich, rockin, just the right amount of sweet, mm-mm-good.

3/4 c blanched sliced almonds
1/4 c pumpkin seeds
1 c rolled oats
3/4 c whole wheat flour
1/3 c softened butter
1/3 c maple syrup
1 t vanilla
1/4 t baking soda
pinch salt

Grind almonds and seeds in food processor. Add the rest of the ingredients and process until mixture turns to dough. Roll into what PPK calls "walnut-sized" balls and indent each one with your thumb. Fill indentations with a bit of jam. Bake on greased pans at 350 for 13 minutes.
