Chocolate Almond Thumbprint Cookies

These easy Chocolate Almond Thumbprint Cookies are deliciously simple and delightfully addicting!



  • Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
  • In a medium-sized bowl, sift together your dry ingredients: flour and salt.
  • Using an electric mixer, beat butter and sugar. Once creamy, add egg and vanilla extract.
  • Slowly add dry ingredients into the wet ingredients. Beat until cookie dough is formed.
  • Roll dough into 1 inch balls and place on lined baking sheet, about two inches apart from one another.
  • Use a teaspoon to indent the center of each cookie. Place in freezer for about 30 minutes and preheat your oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Bake for 13 to 15 minutes and allow to cool on a wire rack. Using a tablespoon, press on each indent just to make them deeper and larger. 
  • Melt chocolate chips and swirl a little chocolate into each indentation on each cookie. Top with one almond.
