Chocolate Thumbprint Cookies are so pretty and delicious. These cookies are easy to make and are perfect for a holiday cookie exchange.
You’ve just got to try my Chocolate Thumbprint Cookies! One bite and you’ll be hooked for life! I dare say that these are my favorite cookies of all time. But before we rush into the easy recipe, let’s talk butter.
If you’ve been reading my blog for very long, you know that I’ve always been a butter snob. I’ve even begged, pleaded, and politely requested that no substitutes be made for the real deal in my recipes.
I’m making an exception with these cookies. Of course, you can feel free to use butter in this recipe. I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter is made from simple ingredients (you know I’m all about simple) including a blend of plant-based oils, purified water, and a pinch of salt. This new recipe is also offered in the original, light, and olive oil varieties.
The best part: The new I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter!® spread has 40% fewer calories and 70% less saturated fat than butter. And because no one can eat just one of my Chocolate Thumbprint Cookies, that’s good news!
My chocolate and walnut cookies are not overly sweet, but then you bite into the frosting and the milk chocolate candy center and there’s a burst of sweet, chocolaty goodness.
Am I being overly dramatic? Not at all! It’s like a little slice of heaven on earth!
