I went over to Sandy’s house today to bake Christmas cookies together. She made Mint Chocolate Truffle Cookies while I made Christmas Cherries. The cookie doughs were made earlier so we just had to roll them out to bake.
The truffle cookies were fun and easy to make: make dough, smash candy, roll dough into balls, bake, make a dent, sprinkle! They were fudgy and chocolately. It’s very important not to overbake them. If you don’t like mint or candy cane in your cookies, omit the candy and eat them plain or with some melted chocolate drizzled over.
The Christmas Cherries were citrus-flavoured soft cookies. I didn’t roll them as small as Pioneer Woman did but I got more than 50 cookies from one recipe. If you’re using unsalted butter, add in a pinch of salt.
While the moms are baking cookies, the kids went sledding. We dropped by to watch them after finishing the last tray. It was so chilly outside that it was a real pleasure to step back into a warm house that smells of freshly-baked cookies!
Hot chocolate to warm their bodies up!
