This time of year is known for Christmas cookies. Almost every family has a recipe they love to make during the Christmas season. My family has a few different recipes we like to make this time of year. My favorite recipe actually didn’t come from my family. Years ago, we got this recipe from the mother of my sister’s friend. They are called “Zebra Cookies” because she would drizzle white chocolate on top. We have actually changed a few things in the recipe, but it’s basically the same.
I’m telling you these cookies are delicious. They are the perfect cookies to bring to a Christmas party, give as a gift, or just eat while watching a Christmas movie.
Here are the ingredients:
1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
3/4 cup butter (softened)
3/4 cup brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1 tbsp milk
2/3 cup semi sweet chocolate chips
white chocolate chips (for dipping)
peppermint candy canes (crushed)
Now here is how you make these Christmas cookies:
First, pre-heat the oven to 350 degrees fahrenheit.
In a bowl, beat the softened butter and brown sugar until creamy.
Then add the egg and vanilla; mix together.
Add the dry ingredients and mix together.
One thing that we have added to this recipe is a little bit of milk. It helps the cookie not be too dry. Add your milk and mix together.
Then add the semi sweet chocolate chips and mix together.
Using a cookie scoop, place cookies on an ungreased baking tray. You can also put parchment paper on the baking tray.
Then roll the cookies into a perfect ball and flatten them a bit.
Bake 14-16 minutes.
When the cookies are fully cooled, melt the white chocolate chips.
Instead of drizzling white chocolate on top, we dip about half of the cookie in the melted white chocolate.
Another thing we added to this recipe is some crushed peppermint candy canes on top. Just crush your peppermint candy canes and sprinkle some on top.
Then all you have to do is wait for the white chocolate to set, and after that enjoy them.
I hope that you all will enjoy these Christmas cookies.
