I brought up the possibility of this implication in topic #16380, but hesitated to request it because of uncertainty about whether cookies like in post #705667 count as thumbprint cookies. I guess it depends on how strict we want to be about the indentation being thumbprint-shaped.

I think it's just the name of that type of cookie. I googled "heart thumbprint cookie" and found a lot of pictures that look like those.

Honestly, I'd reverse it and make it an alias. The wiki is wrong. Thumbprint cookies are usually jam cookies (don't get pedantic with me about chocolate) but jam cookies could be two-layer jammie dodgers, jam-topped meyers, etc. etc.

Jam cookie is the larger tag and thumbprint cookie is, by verbiage, more specific and less ESL-friendly.

Makes sense to me; I'm no cookie expert, so I'll defer to your explanation. BUR edited.
