Strawberry Chocolate Chip Thumbprints

It is another one of those celebration days at work tomorrow, and I wanted to make a sweet treat for the occasion. I decided to create a twist on the traditional thumbprint cookies. I thought the combination of the strawberry and chocolate would be intriguing. These are so easy to make! Just combine all the ingredients, roll the dough in balls, make indentations, bake, then fill indentations with preserves. Any other ideas on flavor combinations for thumbprints?

Strawberry Chocolate Chip Thumbprints
2
eggs
3/4
cups (1 1/2 sticks) margarine or butter, softened
3/4
cups sugar
1
teaspoon vanilla extract
2
cups all-purpose flour
3/4 cup mini chocolate chips

1/2
cup strawberry preserves

Directions:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray large cookie sheet with nonstick cooking spray. In large bowl, beat eggs lightly.
Add margarine or butter, sugar, and vanilla extract to eggs in large bowl.
Combine with mixer at medium speed until evenly mixed.
Add flour and stir just until blended.
Stir in chocolate chips.
Roll tablespoonfuls into balls.
Place balls, 2 inches apart, on cookie sheet.
With thumb, make small indentation in center of each ball.
Bake cookies 20 minutes or until golden.
Immediately fill each indentation with 1/4 teaspoon of jam.
Cool cookies completely on wire rack.

As for other flavors, what about a cookie flavored with lemon extract and lemon zest with a thumbprint of lemon curd?
