Total Time: 12 minutes


  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 1 egg, separated
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup baking cocoa
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

  • Filling
  • 1/2 cup confectioners sugar
  • 1 tablespoon butter(softened)
  • 2 teaspoons milk
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla
  • 24 milk chocolate kisses, unwrapped


In a large mixing bowl, cream butter, sugar, egg yolk, milk and vanilla until light and fluffy.

Combine flour, cocoa and salt in a separate bowl; gradually add to creamed mixture, stirring until well blended. Cover and chill cookie dough for one hour, or until firm enough to shape into balls.

In a small bowl, lightly beat egg white. Shape chilled dough into 1-inch balls, dip in egg white, then roll in chopped nuts. Make an indentation with thumb in center of of each cookie. Bake at 350° for 10 to 12 minutes, or until center is just set. Combine the first four filling ingredients in a bowl; mix until smooth. Spoon about 1/4 teaspoon of filling into each warm cookie indentation, and gently press a chocolate kiss in the center. Carefully remove chocolate thumbprint cookies from baking sheet to wire racks to cool. Makes 24 cookies

Note from Candy:
This is a great recipe, simply delicious, it's a little bit of work, but well worth the effort. I doubled the recipe. I got this from an old Taste of Home Magazine.
