German Chocolate Thumbprint Cookies

Reviewed: Oct. 7, 2007
I've made dozens of yummy recipes from this site over the years, but this one drove me to actually write a review. Someone I adore loves German Chocolate Cake, but he also lives far away. :( GCTC to the rescue. At first I snickered at the thought of using a cake mix for the cookie dough. Then I felt a little devilish at the thought of getting away with it. The first batch valiantly gave itself in the name of research. My sister dedicated herself to scrutinizing the cookie batter while her husband choked down the filling. After passing reviews, batch #2 was apparenly abducted by aliens while setting up in the fridge. Batch #3 turned out beautifully, and was packed and on its way to the object of my affection. Without even trying the originally recipe, I followed the pack and added the 1/2 c flour to the cookie batter. I also refrigerated the dough overnight and used a sorbet scoop to portion the dough and a small melon baller to hollow out an indentation for the filling. Save yourself alot of grief and just make a double batch to begin with so half can be devoured "raw" and the other half can make it to the oven.
