Chocolate Mint Thumbprint Cookies - Club:BAKED

Once again... I waited until the very last minute but I enjoyed making these cookies because they weren't extremely complicated and they didn't require me doing a bunch of little steps that I have never done before. I began making them last night and as soon as I finished the dough and put it in the fridge I realized that I didn't have any heavy cream. I ended up leaving the dough in the fridge all night and started again this morning.

After picking up the heavy cream I got back to work, with Luis here to help me! I took a regular spoon and scooped out a hunk of dough and then rolled it into a ball. I guess I made mine a bit big because I only ended up with 34 cookies. Anyway we rolled them in the sugar and set them out on the tray. I made the thumbprint with my thumb. I have never made thumbprints before so I wanted to get the full experience. 

This is them before baking. I was a bit worried because they weren't looking too attractive.

But they came out okay. After they came out of the oven and cooled completely I added my dark chocolate peppermint filling (instead of the white chocolate filling in the recipe) because I really really REALLY do NOT like white chocolate.I just replaced the white chocolate with 70% dark chocolate. Yummy! :) (I must say though that anyone who did not enjoy the dark chocolate topping from the last recipe would not have liked my filling)

This is how they came out after about 25 minutes in the fridge...

 I really enjoyed these little guys! My mom and Luis seemed to really enjoy them too!
