Hello! It’s Jenn here from Clean and Scentsible. I absolutely LOVE Christmas time and all of the activities that go along with it. I’m not usually much of a baker, but I make an exception at Christmas and love trying new holiday recipes. Today I wanted to share these gingerbread chocolate thumbprint cookies with you that I adapted from the Purdy’s catalog.

The cookies can be stored in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 1 week or can be frozen. Place parchment paper over top of the cookies if you are stacking them as the chocolate mixture does not completely harden. For a fun packaging idea, head on over to Clean and Scentsible and learn how to make these gingerbread ornaments. They are perfect for decorating or adding to gifts!

  1. My first batch resulted in flat cookies, so I took the rest of the dough and chilled in the fridge for an hr or so, I made one cookie to see if it worked and it did, I will now make the rest.
