CHOCOLATE THUMBPRINT COOKIES

I had the most amazing vacation in California and now I'm back in my kitchen.  I had the best 20 days of my life and I'll be blogging about my vacation super soon. Meanwhile, sharing a few pictures from my vacation and the recipe of these divine cookies I made after coming back. 

I love cookies and I love them more when they are chocolaty. These cookies are not only chocolaty, they are nutty and also filled with everyone's favourite Nutella! To make it better for all my vegetarian readers, these cookies are also eggless! Happy Baking!
