Updated New Pics Easy Kids German Chocolate Thumbprint Cookies

Good Morning dear readers,  Hit a snag Conor was adamant about not eating the tagine.  So, instead I will be sharing 3 recipes from my untried recipe binder.  It's been awhile since we pulled recipes from it. Here's the first one.  Conor found the cookie recipe and its from his heritage.  Gotta love him for that, he sure loves his heritage.  This is actually a fun recipe kids can make because they get to put their thumb print in it.  Who doesn't love to play with batter? So lets get to it.  The recipe came from the Sacramento Bee and I've altered it to fit my families tastes.

Ingredients you'll need:

1 cup sugar
1 cup evaporated milk
1/2 cup (1 stick) margarine or butter softened.  I used margarine.
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3 egg yolks beaten--I used medium sized eggs
1 1/2 flaked coconut

Cookie Batter:
1 box German Chocolate Cake Mix with pudding in it.
1/3 cup unsalted butter or margarine

While your mixing your batter and topping  preheat your oven to 350 degrees.

Using a 2 quart sauce pan combine sugar, milk,  1/2 cup margarine, vanilla and egg yolks.  Mixing it up until blended.  Heat on stove for 10-13 minutes until bubbly and thickened.  Then add in coconut stirring until mixed well.  Remove and let cool.

Your going to set aside 1 1/4 cups of this topping for later.

Take your mixing bowl and add cake mix and remaining margarine and the rest of the topping to the bowl.  Take your hand mixer and blend until moist. 

Shape your dough into 1 inch balls and place on cookie sheet about 2 inches apart.  Here's the fun part make indentation in middle of cookie with your thumb don't press to hard.  Fill thumb print with 1/2 tsp of topping.

Place in center of oven for 10-14 minutes until edges are brown first batch always takes a little longer.  When done let cool in pan for 5 minutes then remove to plate. Bon Apetite
