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.
That was before I tried the new I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter, 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 cookie is 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!
When I mentioned to my daughter that I was going to try the new I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter in my cookie recipe, she informed me that she’s been using it exclusively for years and loves it. Then I let her in on the secret that it was new and improved. Ha!

These cookies are the perfect treat to have on hand for the holiday season and especially a cookie exchange party! And who wouldn’t love to get a tin of these chocolate thumbprints for Christmas?
Helpful Hint: Don’t forget to try the new I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter for all of your holiday baking! I like the fact that it’s spreadable straight out of the refrigerator, so there’s no need to wait for it to soften! Don’t you hate waiting for butter to soften?
I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter!® can also be used for spreading on blueberry muffins, multigrain toast, topping corn on the cob, and sauteing veggies.
What’s your favorite holiday cookie?
