I love the holidays! The lights, the gatherings, Santa…and the baking! It’s the season for butter tarts, chocolates and cookies. Lots of cookies.
These candy cane kissed chocolate chip cookies take a tried and true recipe doctored up a bit for the season . Holiday chips, in red, white and green with a slight minty taste, are added to the batter with semi-sweet chocolate chips. Candy Cane Kisses adorn the tops of the cookies once they come out of the oven. A classic with a holiday spin.
I’m happy to be participating in a very special Canadian Cookie Collaboration between the Canadian Food Creatives and the Canadian Christmas Cookie Exchange. #CDNFoodCreatives
