I have had desserts, and especially cookies on the brain this holiday season. I am going to have a friend over soon, for a cookie baking party, so I have been doing a lot of baking. Another friend recently shared that she has a cookie dough party every year during the holidays. It sounded like a terrific excuse to have a great girlfriend over for a chat, and a beverage, while baking, and eating cookies. If all goes well(which I am certain it will), then I will officially adopt this as one of my holiday traditions.
I kneaded it for about a minute in the bowl, until it can together in a smooth ball, and then covered the bowl and placed it into the refrigerator to chill, and re-solidify the fat.
I sprinkled the top of the cookie balls with cane sugar, then used the bottom of a small jelly jar to flatten the cookie balls on the sheet tray. The sprinkle of sugar helped the flattening process , as it made the dough less sticky.
This recipe is adapted from Better Homes and Gardens White Chocolate Cherry Shortbread recipe. These cookies not only look amazing on a cookie tray, they are so easy to make, and are as delicious as they look. These turned out so well and were so pretty, I baked a batch, and gave a bagful to my friend who just had a beautiful baby girl. I hope you bake and share these festive little cookies with, and for your loved ones during the holidays, and beyond. I am thrilled to be linking up with Angela at Cottage Magpie and Domestic Fashionista, in their Holiday Recipes Linky Parade.
