Butter Chocolate Thumbprint Cookies – Tiny Bites As A Big ‘Thank You’By Maya Moscovich on June 26th, 2013 Posted in Cakes and Cookies
It’s the end of the school year, and I always like to send something for the teachers. I mean, yeah we may not be 100% happy with how they dealt with things throughout the year but overall we need to keep in mind that these are the people our children spend most of the day with and that whatever they do and however they do it, it’s not always easy. So a simple thank you note or a small gift is something I personally believe is in order.
So I was wrecking my brain with what to give this year and decided to get it from my favorite place – my kitchen! I baked a few dozens of these bite size butter cookies, got pretty glass jars and wrote a little thank you note to go with it.
I’m kind of a crafty person so the process of making the gift is sometimes something I choose over just going to store and buy something made, but that’s the good ole crazy me.
The jars were all set yesterday and today I sent the kids to school with them. Hopefully the teachers are going to get them in one piece.
These cookies were a great fit for a gift because they only consist of 4 ingredients, they are easy and quick to prepare, they bake for about 10-15 minutes only and most importantly they look great and do not have any allergenic ingredient in them (eggs on nuts) so I could safely send the to school.
And now, I’ll wait until I pick up the kids from school to hear what the teachers had to say 🙂
- 220gr Unsalted Butter – melted
- 2 Cups All Purpose Flour (240gr)
- 1 Cup Corn Starch (100gr)
- ¾ Cup Icing Sugar (60gr)
- Semi Sweet Chocolate Chips
- Preheat oven to 325F (160C)
- Cover baking sheet with parchment paper
- Place all the ingredients in a mixer bowl (can also be mixed by hand) and mix until you get a soft dough ball.
- Scoop ½ tsp and roll into small ball and place on the parchment paper covered baking sheet. Repeat with the rest of the dough and make sure you place cookie balls 1 inch apart from each other.
- Place one chocolate chip on top of each cookie and while you do that, press it gently into the cookie with your thumb (to create a small thumbprint)
- Place in the preheated oven for 12-14 minutes or until the cookies start to get a very light golden color.
Update and disclosure: I also entered this recipe to the 2nd annual cookie contest (Christmas In July) sponsored by “Eat In Eat Out Magazine” (www.eatineatout.ca).
