I made these cookies for Santa at Christmas, and I thought I would share them with everyone here since they turned out so tasty!
Perhaps we could all share a few recipes with each other, or at least the general idea of what our 
favorite meal is/favorite snack, so others can try it too :D

Here's my recipe:

Chocolate Thumbprint Cookies

  • 1 1/4 cups White Sugar
  • 1 cup Butter (2 sticks)
  • 4 oz of an 8 oz package of Cream Cheese (half)
  • 2 Eggs
  • 1 tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 2 1/2 cups All-Purpose Flour
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 cup Cocoa Powder

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Cream together sugar, butter, cream cheese and vanilla. Beat in eggs until airy.
Using the same bowl, add flour, cocoa, and baking soda on top, then stir.

Form dough into balls and place 2 inches apart on cookie sheet. Don't flatten. 

Bake 10 minutes, until tops are cracked.

~~Chocolate Syrup~~
  • 3/4 cup Chocolate Chips
  • 1/4 cup Heavy Cream
  • 1 tbsp Butter

Melt butter and cream together in a saucepan until bubbly.  Remove from heat and stir in Chocolate Chips until evenly melted.

Once cookies are out of the oven, take the back of a teaspoon and press into the top of the hot cookie, leaving a round indentation in the surface.
Fill indentation with chocolate syrup mixture, and leave to cool about 5-10 minutes.

Serve and enjoy! :)

Have fun making these cookies, I did!! :D

    Now, this is where I belong! @Marzipan Thank you for creating this thread! I feel at home here!  :D And I have so many recipes that I would absolutely LOVE to share, as baking and cooking, in general, is a HUGE passion of mine. In fact, I haven't gotten much school work done lately because I'm always making something....  :-SS However, I will gladly share two of my favourite things to make! (Spoiler: Nevermind... THREE things!  8-> )

    Recipe 1: The Best Darn Brownies --- Oh. My. Goodness... These are so good. I got several of my recipes from my great aunt, who was an amazing baker! This is one of them! And the best part... They are SO easy, and fairly quick to make. Here's a secret-not-so-secret: They are DELICIOUS with ice cream or what I love to do, add marshmallows on top after they come out of the oven.

    1 cup of butter (room temp would probably be best)
    1/2 cup cocoa powder
    2 cups flour
    2 cups sugar
    4 eggs
    4 teaspoons vanilla

    Mix ingredients together using an electric mixer, or by hand (whatever your preference). Pour in a 9x13 pan. Bake 20-25 minutes @ 350 degrees Fahrenheit (176.7 degrees Celsius).
    These brownies go very well with peppermint ice cream, especially!

    Recipe 2: French Breakfast Puffs! -- I personally LOVE this recipe, and I actually made it a couple of days ago. Real quick before we start, I have a baking tip. I’m sure y’all have made baked goods and they come out too dry. Next time you bake, when the recipe says… for example, 20-25 minutes, do it for 20, because it can always go in longer. If it is done at the minimum time, then take it out. I learned this from my friend because I told her these muffins were coming out too dry. Now into the recipe.



    1 ½ cups all-purpose flour

    1 ½ teaspoons baking powder

    ½ teaspoon salt

    ¼ teaspoon nutmeg

    ½ cup white sugar

    1/3 cup shortening

    1 egg

    ½ cup milk

    ½ cup white sugar

    1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

    6 tablespoons margarine, melted (I use regular butter)



    Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease 12 muffin cups, or line cups with paper muffin liners.

    In a large bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, salt, and nutmeg. In a separate bowl, cream together ½ cup sugar and shortening. Beat in egg. Stir flour mixture into shortening mixture alternately with milk. Beat well. Spoon batter into prepared muffin cups. (Beware, batter is extremely sticky)

    Bake in preheated oven for 20 to 25 minutes. While muffins are baking, combine ½ cup sugar (2nd sugar listing in the ingredient list) and 1 teaspoon cinnamon.

    Remove muffins from oven and muffin pan. Immediately, dip the tops of the muffins into the melted butter/margarine, then into the sugar/cinnamon mixture. Repeat with each muffin, until all muffin tops are covered. Serve warm (but they work well at room temperature!).

    Recipe 3: The Perfect Hot Chocolate

     Okay! Here is one I make almost every day! And it is absolutely the best (and goes great with the French Breakfast Puffs). It truly is The Perfect Hot Chocolate! It is only 3 ingredients! Enjoy!


    1 Tablespoon Cocoa Powder

    1/3 Cup white sugar (use ¼ cup sugar if you like you hot chocolate a little bit less sweet! :D)

    1 ¾ cup milk

    ¼ cup milk (to be used separately from other milk)


    Stir together the cocoa powder and sugar in a medium saucepan.

    Add ¼ cup of milk and stir constantly over medium-high heat until mixture begins to boil. Continue stirring constantly until all sugar is dissolved. Make sure to not let it burn!

    Add the remaining milk to the pan and bring the heat up to desired temperature!

    Top with marshmallows or drink it straight up!


    I hope y’all enjoyed my craziness! I know I did!
