  1. Beat 1/2 cup butter or margarine, white sugar, egg yolk, 2 tablespoons milk and 1 teaspoon vanilla until light and fluffy. Combine flour, cocoa and salt; gradually add to butter mixture. Cover and chill 1 hour or until firm enough to roll into balls.
  2. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, lightly beat egg white.
  3. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (180 degrees C).
  4. Shape dough into 1 inch balls; dip in egg white, then roll in nuts. Place on greased baking sheets. Make an indentation with thumb in center of each cookie. Bake for 10-12 minutes or until center is set.
  5. To Make the Filling: In a small bowl, combine 1/2 cup confectioner's sugar, 1 tablespoon of butter or margarine, 2 teaspoons of milk and 1/4 teaspoon of vanilla extract. Mix until smooth.
  6. Spoon 1/4 teaspoon of the filling into each warm cookie; gently press a chocolate kiss (unwrapped) in the center. Carefully remove from baking sheet to wire racks to cool.

a little messy to make

The taste of these is okay, but I wouldn't make them again how they are directed to make. The thumbprint was gone after baking, so I had to indent again after baking. On my first batch, I adde...

These are wonderful cookies. I have added these to my Christmas cookie must bake list, as everyone always asks for them. The recipe is perfect and needs no tweaks. One time I didn't have butt...

Very yummy. Easy to make. I like this way better than the ones where the kiss is baked onto the cookie. Since these were made with the Christmas cookies they were around for a few days. One ...

These cookies were pretty good. I thought it was very strange that they didn't call for any baking powder/soda, and although the finished product was good, they weren't great, so I won't be maki...

A good chocolate cookie. I was looking for a chocolate cookie that I could add my peanut M&M's to and this worked perfectly minus the nuts and confection filling.

YUMMY! We doubled the batch and are going to make them again. I am sure we will eat them all! (Baking time took about 2 min. longer, but we may have made larger cookies than the recipe called fo...
