Easter Cookies – Chocolate Thumbprint Cookies

Published

My Easter cookies are a deliciously buttery thumbprint style cookie.  They have a lovely deep imprint which is filled with milk chocolate and topped with a mini candy Easter Egg.

Leading up to Easter I like to send the kids to school with little treats that remind them of the upcoming celebration. Whether it’s homemade Hot Cross Buns, a little Easter egg or these thumbprint cookies, I think it’s nice to send something special.

I find it even helps me to get in the spirit of the season.

What is the 100 Cookie, Dough?

These thumbprint cookies are made using special cookie dough.  It’s the famous 100 cookies, dough. You may have heard about it as the recipe has been all over the internet for years.

The recipe makes a BIG batch of cookies and is suitable for freezing. I don’t find it makes quite 100 cookies because I tend to make them a little on the large size, but it certainly makes enough to fill the cookie jar very cheaply.

The recipe consists of just 5 ingredients everyday ingredients.  I usually make a full batch and then divide the dough into 6 portions. I bake off one or two portions straight away and place the rest of the dough in the freezer for another day.
