Chocolate Thumbprint Cookies

Last night I made these cookies.

This is the recipe I used and I made no changes.  They’re definitely pretty.  It’s too much chocolate for me so I didn’t try one but I was talking to my neighbor on the phone as I was finishing them up.  It was close to 9 p.m. and she was coming home from having been to a church function.  I told her I would bring them some “tomorrow” but then I said “Hey . . if you want to come by the house, I’ll give you some while they’re warm.”  She did come by and then she called and told me they were delicious so I’m taking her word for it.

Vince had a sleep study test at the hospital last night so he hasn’t tried them yet but I’m guessing he will approve too.

    I wish I could convince Chris to do a sleep study. You would think that the fact that I have to go sleep in another room most nights would be a clue to him!

    My husband has the orders for a sleep study, but hasn’t done it yet. He keeps saying he won’t be able to go to sleep unless I’m there with him. I’m sure they hear that all the time. Any excuse I guess.
    The cookies do look good, but like you I don’t do lots of chocolate. Our favorite cookies are your spice crisp cookies and a shortbread cookie that my grandma used to make. My kids actually fight over the last few each year. Makes me smile.

    My son did a sleep study last April. He had severe sleep apnea and immediately had surgery for adnoids, tonsils and to put tubes in his ears…. it has made the difference of night and day! He is three years old and I wish we had done it when he was a newborn… He never slept a full night of sleep till after he healed from the surgery! If you have the write off from insurance to do it you definitely should AND most places let your spouse or parent stay with you… just no funny business because EVERYTHING is on camera!

    They look good to me but then again, I’ve never met a chocolate I didn’t like. In college I worked in the ice cream shop and would make chocolate milk shakes using chocolate ice cream with chocolate milk and chocolate chips.

    S;leep study… ugh… But I’ve used my cpap machine for almost 10 years and can’t sleep without it now, so it’s worth it.
