Vegan Thumbprint Cookies

"Crunchy and buttery THUMBPRINT COOKIES! You can fill them with a creamy hazelnut and chocolate spread, or maybe a homemade jam? Don't forget to top them with some ground pistachios or hazelnuts, to add some more crunchiness and texture! They are delicious on their own, too, make them and thank me later!"
