Thumbrpint cookies describe a huge variety of flavors, fillings, and textures but they all have one thing in common. Everyone loves them.
I made these for Valentine’s Day and they were a big hit – but you could make them anytime with plain hershey’s Kisses, Dove chocolate squares, or whatever you like.
The cookie dough is easy to make and flavored with finely chopped white chocolate. Once you have the dough made you just make walnut sized balls and roll them in chopped pecans.
Easy. Really easy.
Several people have asked about creaming the butter and sugar together. It is hard to explain but it should look something like this:
The cookies come out tender and slighly crumbly with big white chocolate flavor and pecans for texture. The middle chunk of melty, gooey chocolate just adds an extra touch of wow-factor.
If you are using heart shaped chocolates you will want to press one of the chocolates into one of the cookie dough balls before baking and then remove it. This will help you to know how big of a “thumbrint” you will need to make.
Once they come out of the oven let them cool and then drizzle with a thin white chocolate ganache.
They are pretty enough for special parties but good enough for the cookie jar.
