Chocolate Thumbprint Cookies

Posted Dec 15 2009 8:51am

This year my mother-in-law and I went on a Christmas cookie frenzy!

I tried thumbprint cookies for the first time and LOVED them!


Here is another version of Thumbprints!


Chocolate Thumbprints Cookies Recipe


Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 1 egg, separated
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup baking cocoa
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup finely chopped walnuts
  • FILLING:
  • 1/2 cup confectioners' sugar
  • 1 tablespoon butter, softened
  • 2 teaspoons milk
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 26 milk chocolate kisses

Directions

  • In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in the egg yolk, milk and vanilla. Combine the flour, cocoa and salt; gradually add to creamed mixture and mix well. Cover and refrigerate for 1 hour or until or until easy to handle.
  • In a small bowl, whisk egg white until foamy. Shape dough into 1-in. balls; dip in egg white, then roll in nuts. Place on greased baking sheets. Using a wooden spoon handle, make an indentation in center of each cookie. Bake at 350° for 10-12 minutes or until center is set.
  • For filling, combine the confectioners' sugar, butter, milk and vanilla; stir until smooth. Spoon or pipe 1/4 teaspoon into each warm cookie; gently press a chocolate kiss in the center. Carefully remove from pans to wire racks to cool. Yield: 2 dozen.
