Chocolate Thumbprint Cookies

I saw these Chocolate Thumbprint Cookies from VWAV on Midwest Vegan’s blog the other day and when I had a craving for something chocolatey I thought I would try them out. They taste a bit more like brownies than cookies and that leads to comparisons with Dreena’s utterly gorgeous fudgy brownies from Vive Le Vegan! And nothing that is remotely brownie-like will ever be as truly scrumptious as Dreena’s brownies!
Wee G was also disappointed. When he saw the he exclaimed that they looked like chocolate Jammie Dodgers! Yeah, but they don’t taste like them, sorry...

I haven't tried Dreena's brownies yet but thanks for the heads up. Your pic of them in the linked post looks super yummy.

I love Dreena's cookies.. I always thought I hated cookies.. turns out, I hated the eggs in cookies. oy.. I will NOT be trying those brownies. I'm sure they're just as delicious!

I love all your food pics from recent days--the omelette in the last post sounds fantastic, especially since you drastically cut down on the oil! I'm sorry these cookies didn't please you so much. I've been eyeing this recipe recently, but maybe upon your suggestion I'll just make a batch of Dreena's brownies instead! I love those brownies.

madeinalaska, the chocolatey goodness is exactly the way to describe Dreena’s brownies!!

Emmy, you should definitely try them…but beware you will get hooked on them!! :)

Melody, the brownies are delicious…I have to resist making them all the time!

Laura, if you’re going to make the omelette without the oil like I did, I would definitely recommend adding a little more flavor (spices, herbs, salt, etc) and if possible don’t eat it till the day after you make it!

Brooke, sorry, I promise I will stop talking about brownies and cookies so much! I will have to stop making so many or I won’t be able to fit in my clothes!!

KleoPatra, they are really cute! They just weren’t my favourite cookies ever…
