Celebrating the Holidays with Lindt Canada: Lindor GingerBread Thumbprint Cookies #LindtTheSeason

Nothing says the Holidays like chocolate from Lindt.  From their delicious varieties, classic designs and melt in your mouth truffles, there’s a reason why it’s #1 in our home!  Afterall, they have been making chocolate since 1879.  I think they’ve mastered the craft of making quality chocolate.  Below you’ll find so much inspiration for holiday gift giving.  I have an idea for some teacher presents and gifts for the kids to give to their friends, like Lindor  Christmas Elf.

Lindor Gingerbread Thumbprint Cookies

Ingredients
  1. 1¼ cups (310mL) all-purpose flour
  2. ⅛ tsp (½mL) salt
  3. ½ cup (125mL) unsalted butter, at room temperature
  4. ½ cup (125mL) granulated sugar
  5. 1 large egg yolk
  6. 1 tsp (4mL) vanilla extract
  7. 6 (150g) Lindor Gingerbread Truffles, frozen for minimum 1 hour and halved using a sharp knife
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350ºF (175ºC). Line two baking sheets with parchment paper.
  2. Whisk together all-purpose flour and salt in a medium bowl. Set aside.
  3. In the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, cream together butter and sugar until light and fluffy, about 2 minutes. Scrape down the bowl and beater, turn mixer to low, then add egg yolk, then vanilla. Scrape down the sides of the bowl as needed.
  4. Add dry ingredients to mixer bowl and mix on low. Increase mixer speed to medium and beat until a smooth sugar cookie dough forms.
  5. Divide dough into 12 pieces. Roll into round, smooth balls and place on prepared baking sheets, spacing them 1.5 inches (4 cm) apart. Press centre of each ball with your thumb (or the handle of a wooden spoon) to create a wide and deep indent.
  6. Bake for about 12 to 14 minutes, until edges just begin to turn golden brown. Let cool 5 minutes on baking sheet (press down indentation if it has puffed), then transfer cookies to a wire rack. Let cool 2 more minutes, then press a frozen half Lindor into each indent. Let cool completely.
Notes
  1. Freeze Lindor Truffles at least one hour before pressing onto warm cookies. This will help prevent the creamy centre from melting too quickly from the heat of the cookies.
