Chocolate Thumbprint Cookie Recipe


1 cup butter
1 cup white sugar
2 eggs, separated
2 (1 ounce) squares unsweetened chocolate, melted
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
48 milk chocolate candy Kisses, unwrapped
1/3 cup granulated sugar for decoration


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease cookie sheets.

In a medium bowl, cream the butter and sugar together. Stir in 2 egg yolks, melted chocolate, and vanilla.

Sift together the flour and salt; stir into the creamed mixture.

In a small bowl, slightly beat the remaining egg whites.

Roll dough into walnut sized balls. Dip balls into the egg whites, then roll in sugar (or chopped nuts if desired).

Place cookies onto cookie sheets and make a small indentation in the center with your thumb.

Bake for 10 to 12 minutes in the preheated oven. When the cookies come out, press a chocolate kiss into the center.

Yield:  About 48 cookies.
