Christmas Cookies by claremanson Christmas Cookies by claremanson
Christmas to me is all about family and friends coming together and in this case sharing happiness in the form of food and i tried to cater for the cookie lover, chocoholic and sweet toothed sweet monsters of the house which in this house means everyone, young and old.

homemade chocolate peppermint cookies covered in white chocolate and sprinkled with crushed peppermint candy canes

I didn't have the time for perfection today, i didn't even use cookie cutters. I rolled the dough into small balls and just popped them in the oven. Once cooled i quickly dumped the cookies into melted white chocolate and whilst still sticky added the candy canes.

These look, sound and probably taste wonderful. I'm glad to see I'm not the only one who's planning to use white chocolate, this season. :3

Yeah, it's definitely more interesting than just a spice muffin or a pumpkin-cranberry-pecan what have you every year.

Don't get me wrong, I love pumpkin and cranberry flavors, and spice, but they get to be so tiresome. :/

i know what you mean, over here all we ever get is christmas pudding, mince pies and christmas cakes i am not a big fan of all that rich alcoholic, fruity stuff, everything is so rich and overpowering, not want you want after a big heavy christmas meal

just take your favourite chocolate cookie recipe and add a few drops of peppermint extract to the dough. after baking dunk completely in melted white chocolate, the cookies wont stick at all if you use none stick paper i was a little worried they would but they were fine and sprinkle some crushed candy canes on top (i had fun bashing with my rolling pin, stressful day lol)
