Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. In a medium bowl, cream together the margarine and sugar until smooth. Mix in the flour and chopped pecans. Shape tablespoonfuls of dough into balls and place them 2 inches apart onto ungreased cookie sheets. Press a thumb or finger deeply into the center of each cookie.
  3. Bake for 9 to 12 minutes in the preheated oven, until edges are lightly browned. Allow cookies to cool for a couple of minutes on the baking sheets before removing to wire racks to cool completely. Fill each depression in the cookies with a dab of chocolate frosting. Let the icing set, preferably overnight.

This is a really good shortbread cookie recipe. The only change to the recipe that I made was to add a teaspoon of vanilla. For the topping, I melted semi-sweet chocolate chips and spooned it in the middle of each cookie. I also sifted the cookies with powdered sugar after done.

Great recipe!!!!!!!!!!!! I added a little more sugar, eliminated the pecans, and substituted the chocolate for grape jam.

My family absolutely loved them and my kids enjoyed putting on the thumbprints. My husband suggested I could also use the large side chocolate chips instead of the frosting.
