Christmas is my very favorite time of year. I love it all, from the music to the decorations to visits with friends and family. (Okay, I guess I don’t love it all, I can’t stand the mall- bring on the internet shopping!) And of course, I love Christmas baking. This year in honor of our first year blogging Christmas, we thought we do a Christmas Countdown and share our holiday baking with you.
I did most of my baking alone but this recipe I baked with my niece and older sister. I love these cookies, two different types of chocolate and candy canes, what is not to love?
White Chocolate Peppermint Chippers
3/4 cup white chocolate chips
2 cups all purpose flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
3/4 cup butter
2/3 cup sugar
1 tsp vanilla
4 candy canes or 12 peppermint candies, crushed
3/4 cup semi sweet (or milk) chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 375. Grease cookie sheet. In a large bowl, melt 1/3 cup white chocolate chips. Add butter to bowl. With mixer, beat until creamy. Add sugar, beat until fluffy. Mix in egg and vanilla. In a separate bowl, mix flour, baking powder and salt. Add to butter mixture and mix until blended. Add remaining white chocolate chips, semi sweet chips and crushed candy canes. Drop batter on to cookie sheet and bake for 10-12 minutes. Cool and share with people you love.
