THE Christmas cookie of the 2010 season: Double Chocolate – Peppermint Crunch Cookies. So. Good. If you like that sort of thing, and my love of the peppermint chocolate combo is well-known, I’m sure. The first batch is almost gone (mostly given away, thank you very much), but another may follow.
Oh! If you decide to make these, too, I would recommend chilling the dough briefly before rolling them into balls and baking. My dough seemed much too soft for successful rolling right off the bat, so I ended up chilling it overnight…which was too long. But after about thirty minutes on the table, it had warmed up enough for me to chip off the amount needed, and it was easy street from there on out.
*Hoglicious is a step above “dog good” — which, itself, is a very high rating — in Coopese.
