Thursday Recipe – Hagrid’s Thumbprints

June 9, 2011 at 1:54 am Leave a comment

Continuing on with Hogwarts, this is a fun cookie. It is rich, decadent, and looks much more difficult than it is. If you like pecan sandies and caramel filling, this is the cookie for you. I named them Hagrid’s Thumbprints because you need a really big thumb to make the hole big enough to hold the filling.

Hagrid’s Thumbprints

1 c. butter

1 c. powdered sugar

2 c. flour

1/2 c. chopped nuts, pecans preferred

1 T. vanilla

Cream butter and sugar. Blend in vanilla. Add flour and nuts. Stir just until mixed. Drop dough by tablespoonfuls onto a greased cookie sheet. Press thumb into each cookies to make a hole for the filling. The hole shrinks a bit when cooking so make sure you make it large enough without pushing through the bottom. Bake at 375° for 15 minutes. Cool.


1/4 c. butter

1/2 c. brown sugar

dash of salt

1/4 c. evaporated milk, NOT sweetened condensed milk

1 c. powdered sugar

1/2 t. vanilla

Melt butter in a saucepan over medium heat. Stir in brown sugar and salt. Bring to a boil. Boil and stir for two minutes. Remove from heat and stir in milk. Bring back to a boil; boil and stir for another two minutes. Remove from heat. Cool for 15 minutes. Stir in powdered sugar and vanilla. Beat until smooth.

Fill each cookie with about 1 t. of filling. Let cool and set up for at least one hour.
