"These thumbprint cookies feature a silky smooth chocolate filling puddled inside a soft cookie base with a hint of almond. These chocolate thumbprint cookies are double the trouble in the chocolate department. The fudgy chocolate center on top of a rich chewy cookie that will melt in your mouth. As soon as the holidays roll around we whip out our favorite thumbprint cookie recipe, but instead of a jam-filled center and buttery vanilla base, we’re adding cocoa powder and replacing the filling with silky smooth chocolate.
