When I saw this recipe in my Facebook group  i decided to make them But i forgot it .
As Christmas was round the corner this recipe clicked in my mind and sure enough I made these cookies.

From my last holiday trip I had  bought Hershey’s kisses chocolate .So for Christmas baking and for my daughter’s birthday I made these cookies with Hershey’s kisses.

Have a chocolate kiss with these delicious Thumbprint Cookies –picsart_1481818387760

1/2 cup  unsalted butter, softened
1/2 cup confectioners’ sugar (Icing sugar)(I used regular sugar)
1 tsp vanilla
1 1/4 cups flour (maida)
Hershey’s kisses chocolate


  • Preheat oven to 180°C/350°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • If you are not using parchment, you do not need to grease the baking sheet.
  • Using a handheld or mixer, beat together the butter, sugar, salt, and vanilla on medium-high speed until smooth, about 2 minutes.
  • Beat in the flour, beginning on low speed and increasing to medium-high.picsart_1482238918783
  • Using heaping teaspoons, roll the dough into balls, and place 1-inch apart on a baking sheet.
  • Bake for 10 minutes, remove from oven, and make an indentation (I used the back of a melon baller to make the indentations) into the middle of each cookie.picsart_1482239003083
  • Return to oven, and bake until light brown on the edges, 7 to 9 minutes more.
  • Immediately upon removing the cookies from the oven, press a Hershey’s chocolate kiss gently into the indentation of each cookie.
  • Remove to a wire rack to cool.picsart_1482239049499


  • For those who don’t have the Hershey’s kisses but still want to bake these cookies, proceed with the complete process and once completely cooled fill them with Nutella or chocolate.
  • If you want to fill with jam, the cookies need to be filled before they go into the oven.
