Chocolate Mint Thumbprint Cookies

Let me start by saying I am not a fan of thumbprint cookies, I find them too dry. These chocolate thumbprint cookies were alright, (It's hard to go wrong with Hershey's Mint Kisses.) but just not my favorite. If for some reason you want to give them a try...

Chocolate Mint Thumbprint Cookies

1 1/2 cups flour
3/4 cups sugar
1/2 cup cocoa powder
1/2 tsp salt
6 tbs butter, softened
2 large eggs, lightly beaten
1 egg white

In a large bowl beat butter on medium speed for 30 seconds. Add sugar and beat until combined. Beat in eggs and vanilla. Add flour and mix until combined. Cover and chill for 1 hour.

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Roll dough into 1 inch balls. Roll balls into egg white, then chocolate sprinkles. Place 1 inch apart on cookie sheet. Using your thumb, make indention in each ball.

Bake 10-12 minutes. Let cool for 10 minutes before filling thumbprint with Hershey's Kisses. Move to wire rack and let cool completely.
