  • 1
    Heat oven to 375°F (or 350°F for dark or nonstick cookie sheet). In medium bowl, stir cookie mix, softened butter and egg until soft dough forms.
  • 2
    Drop dough by rounded tablespoonfuls 2 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheet. Using thumb or handle of wooden spoon, make indentation in center of each cookie.
  • 3
    Bake 8 to 10 minutes or until edges are light golden brown. Remove from oven.
  • 4
    Unwrap caramels and place on center of each cookie. Bake an additional 1 to 2 minutes, or until candy is melted slightly. Cool 1 minute before removing from cookie sheet to wire rack. Cool completely; store in airtight container.

Expert Tips

  • Thumbprint cookies are often called "thimble cookies" in older cookbooks because a thimble was used to make the indentation.
