Every year my co-workers and I do a baking exchange for the holidays. It’s a great way to get lots of great goodies for Christmas and you only need to bake once! This year I made these Chocolate Sugar Cookies with Candy Cane Kisses on top. I saw these cookies on Allie’s website, Baking A Moment, and knew I had to make them.
In the past I was never a big fan of sugar cookies but I think it’s because I never had a good recipe. That all changed when I found the perfect recipe that I used for my Fall Leaf Sugar Cookies. It never occurred to me to make Chocolate Sugar Cookies and I’m so glad I did because these are really good!
This dough was also the BEST cookie dough I’ve ever worked with. It rolled so nicely, cut perfectly and the cookies kept their shape when they were cooked. Usually I end up with a cookie that melts into unknown forms and you’re not sure if I’ve made Easter cookies or Halloween cookies! Not this time, though. The way I cut them is they way they stayed!
These cookies are delicious just the way they are but I wanted to add a little bit extra so I added some red and white coarse sugar, Candy Cane Kisses, and drizzled all of them with melted white chocolate chips. Pretty festive if I do say so myself!
