As long as we don't think of these as traditional thumbprint cookies, I have no problems with them whatsoever. My husband is a german chocolate fiend, and his office requires him to bring his own treats on his birthday, so these make an annual appearance since they are easier to handle than cake. Everyone who tastes them asks for the recipe, thinking they are really difficult to make, but they are so easy and soooo good!
I haven't yet tried adding flour to the mixture (which I should be doing anyway since I live at altitude), but I'm going to make a batch this weekend and try it.
One complaint: I wish the recipe told how much frosting to put INTO the cake mix, not how much to hold out. My husband and I can't stop snacking on the darn stuff as it cools, so it's always a guess as to how much should go into the cake mix.
