A fudge-filled thumbprint cookie made with See’s Bordeaux fudge, but you can use your favorite fudge just as easily!


  • 1 cup butter

  • 3/4 cup brown sugar

  • 1 unbeaten egg yolk

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour

  • 1/2 lb. See’s Bordeaux Pecan fudge (can be obtained from See’s Candy website or your local See’s store), or see note*. Photographed with homemade chocolate fudge.

  • 1/2 teaspoon salt


  • Cream butter and gradually add brown sugar. Mix well. Blend in egg yolk. Add flour and salt. Stir until it forms dough. Chill until firm. Shape into small balls. Put on baking sheet and make indentation in center of each ball. Place small squares of Bordeaux fudge in middle of indentation. Bake at 325 degrees for 8-10 minutes.


  • * You can substitute vanilla or chocolate fudge for Bordeaux fudge, but Bordeaux makes these exquisite. See’s used to make a Bordeaux Fudge without nuts, but now they only sell it with pecans. I can’t get See’s in Canada so I just used chocolate fudge.

They were nice, but nothing special, however this might have been because i didn't use bordeaux fudge but homemade fudge... Worth a try though.
- A Baker

The cookies looked unappealing but they were as good as any cookie from any bakery in any city that I've ever been to!

This recipe is fantastic! The fudgy center is wonderful, but the cookie itself is buttery and just melts in your mouth. This is a regular on my christmas cookie list!
