Who doesn’t like some delicious festive cookies to munch on, while dressing up the Christmas tree? Or organizing a cookie swap party? Or gifting friends and family with a batch of home-made goodness? Nobody, right? So today I have these Peppermint and White Chocolate Sugar Cookie recipe for you, perfect for all of the above! Although, it’s more of a cookie hack to be honest.
Of course, the best sort of cookies, are the ones that only grandma used to make – because of course noting is as good as an old family recipe passed through generations of passionate bakers!
Except, that we don’t always have time to make that big batch of perfect home-made cookies. All the cutting and baking is definitely fun, but sometimes between work and home it’s just not happening.
So with this cookie hack, nobody will know you didn’t actually bake these cookies. Or you can tell them the truth, and I’m sure everyone will still love these! Because these melting in your mouth shortbread cookies, mixed with sweetness of white chocolate and the crunch of the peppermint candy cane, are simply delicious!
And it’s a perfect treat for a snowy day, and one of my families favorite too. You can even involve the kids in making these, they’ll be great little helpers! My daughters loved dipping them in white chocolate and sneaking some right away!
Oh, and you can even prepare them ahead of time, and freeze them for up to a month!
You can get the Peppermint and white chocolate sugar cookie recipe in our Hello Holiday Christmas Lookbook, here! It’s an on-line book full of festive ideas, DIY’s recipes and life hacks, all prepared especially for the holiday season!
