I was having a conversation the other day with someone about all cookies I am baking this Christmas season. I am baking about 15 different kinds of cookies, which will be about 50 dozen total. I am trying to get all my Christmas recipes and early January recipes done in the next 1 week. Wish me luck!!
Everyone needs a little peppermint during the Christmas season. These white chocolate peppermint are like a candy cane in a cookie. They are so soft. If you want a stronger peppermint flavor had more peppermint extract. I think the amount of peppermint, peppermint chips and candy canes is the perfect amount. I love adding the white chocolate to the cookies. It is just a perfect touch to the cookies.
