Thumb Print Cookies With A Twist !

I have always loved the taste of thumb print cookies, the chewy tart jam combined with the buttery cookie was always a winner to me. Unfortunately on some rare occasions you find people who don't enjoy the yummy jam center ... Then what do you do??

My post last week inspired me to make a Butterscotch thumb print cookie with a white chocolate drizzle!

Here it is!

What You Need: 
- 125 grams of unsalted soften butter
- 1/3 cup of caster sugar
- 1 1/4 cup of plain flour
- A pinch of salt
- 1/2 teaspoon of Vanilla Bean paste
- Cooled Butterscotch (Recipe here Click for Butterscotch goodness - you will only need half the amount and you could save the rest for some late night ice cream drizzling)
- Around 30 grams of white chocolate

1 tablespoon per cookie rolled into a ball

I made the dents in my cookie using the back of a measuring spoon

Butterscotch is spooned into each dent

What To Do:
1. Mix the Butter, sugar, salt and vanilla until combined
2. Add in the flour and mix until the dough is smooth
3. Flatten into a disk and place in the fridge for 30 minutes
4. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees
5. Use a tablespoon to measure out each cookie and then roll into balls
6. Use your thumb or spoon to create an indent for the butterscotch - don't stress about cracks when you press down, I find them charming and homely.
7. Spoon the butterscotch into the center
8. Bake for 15-18 minutes - until slightly golden on the edges
9. Cool slightly and then move to a baking rack to cool further
10. Melt the white chocolate and drizzle over the cookie
11. Pack into a cute metal cookie tin and you can give this as a gift or eat them yourself :)

Great as a gift!
