Nestlé Peppermint Crisp Thumbprint Cookies

The Americans love their thumbprint cookies. We’ve given ours a local twist with the addition of Nestlé Peppermint Crisp Dessert Topping in the cookie mixture and on top.



    • Cookies:
    • Butter
      ½ cup
    • Nestlé Peppermint Crisp Dessert Topping
      1/3 cup
    • Brown sugar
      ½ cup
    • Granulated sugar
      ¼ cup
    • Egg
      1 large
    • Vanilla essence
      2 tsp
    • Flour
      1 ¾ cup
    • Corn flour
      2 tsp
    • Bicarbonate of soda
      1 tsp
    • Salt
    • Nestlé milk chocolate, roughly chopped
      1 cup
    • Peppermint Crisp Filling:
    • Cream cheese
    • Nestlé Peppermint Crisp Dessert Topping
      ¼ cup


    1. In a large bowl combine the flour, corn flour, cinnamon, bicarbonate of soda and salt. Set aside.
    2. In a bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment add the butter, Nestlé Peppermint Crisp Dessert Topping, sugars, egg and vanilla essence. Cream for about 4 minutes.
    3. Reduce the speed of the mixer and slowly add the flour mixture. Be sure to combine well.
    4. Fold through the chocolate bits.
    5. Roll the cookie dough into balls and place on a greased baking tray. Using your thumb make an indentation into the cookie in the center. Bake in the oven at 160°C for 12 minutes. Remove from the oven, and lightly press in the center of the cookies again; to ensure a small dip is present. Allow to cool slightly before transferring to a wire rack.
    6. While the cookies cool; make the topping by beating together all the ingredients until a uniform mixture forms.
    7. Once cooled fill each cookie with Nestle Peppermint Crisp Dessert Topping, using a teaspoon. Set aside until serving.



    Mix cream cheese and any of the Nestlé Professional’s Dessert range products to create a more malleable frosting. All of the products work well with the cream cheese creating an unforgettable flavor.
