Cookie Recipes - Chocolate Thumbprints

    Wallace Wallace was under a lot of pressure but he remained true. These traits made us think of chocolate thumbprints which are really good but have to withstand a little bit of pressure.

    Chocolate Thumbprints
    • 1 cup butter, softened
    • 1/2 cup sugar
    • 2 egg yolks
    • 1/2 tsp vanilla
    •  Pinch of salt
    • 2 cups flour
    • 3/4 cup of Chocolate Ganache(recipe follows)
    In small bowl, mix flour and salt. In mixer, cream  butter and sugar on for about 5 minutes. Separate eggs then add yolks and vanilla to the butter mixture. Add flour and mix until just combined. Refrigerate the dough for 30 minutes then preheat oven to 350F.

    Take the dough out of the refrigrator and roll into approx 1 inch balls. Hold in the palm of one hand, then make a thumbprint in the middle of cookie (but don't press too hard!)  Place on cookie sheet lined with parchment.
    Bake at 350F for 12-15 minutes. Check that cookies are a bit firm before removing from oven.Transfer cookies to a rack to cool completely (if thumbprints are gone, make them again noew while cookies are warm).
    While cookies cool, make ganache.
    Chocolate Ganache
    1/2 cup heavy cream
    1 cup chocolate chips

    Stir cream and chocolate chips in double boiler on low heat until warm. If you don't have a double boiler, you can microwave for 30 seconds. If the chocolate doesn't melt, then try 30 seconds more.

    When cookies are cool, spoon 1/2 tsp chocolate ganache (or more) into thumbprints
