It's Christmas season around here and while the holiday season is not quite in full swing, we are starting to gather some of our favorite recipes for when we start baking and making goodies for friends and family. On the list every single year is chocolate without fail. We love anything chocolate and when we can combine that with one of our favorite holidays, it just gets better and better. We also make a lot of cookies so this year was more about experimenting with holiday flavors (peppermint) and chocolate in a cookie. The result is this amazing shortbread cookie that is just as good not dipped in chocolate or with crushed peppermint and tastes just like european shortbread cookies. This is definitely a Candy cane shortbread cookies recipe loved by all. A fun twist is to make these Chocolate Peppermint Shortbread Cookies into shortbread cookies dipped in white chocolate by using white chocolate instead of milk or dark. However, the way we made it, the flavors just combine so well and really says holiday season. I am thinking that these will become our new family favorite. We hope that you love our candy cane cookies with almond extract recipe post.
