pink peppercorn thumbprints

These sweet and dainty little Pink Peppercorn Thumbprints are a perfect teatime treat. Pink peppercorns and white chocolate are two surprise twists in the dough, which comes together quickly in the food processor. The peppercorns didn’t break down as much in the food processor as they would have in a spice grinder, and I think the little unground bits and pieces were where I noticed their pop of flavor the most. You wouldn’t really know these cookies have white chocolate in the dough because that did get fully incorporated, but it gives them a richness that they wouldn’t have otherwise. Dorie uses strawberry jam in her recipe to fill the thumbprints, but I had some plum in the fridge and used that instead. I think most any jam would do nicely here. In keeping with the pretty in pink theme, I dusted them with pink powdered sugar (sugar sieved along with a crushed freeze dried raspberry).

  2. Yes, these were sweet and dainty. I agree that the peppercorns did not seem to add much. I used cherry jam.

  3. Pink powdered sugar, nice touch. Love these.

  4. The peppercorns didn’t break down much in a mini food processor either. I picked out many of the husks as they were large and not pink and pretty!
