My sister sent me these amazing mint meltaway chips the other day as a care package. I’m not gonna lie, I’ve been sneaking a couple here and there throughout the week. They are just too good.
I’m a little nervous about this Christmas. It’s going to be me and the boy..his family…his friends. It’s weird, because I feel like I’m in uncharted territory, but I know that I’ll be ok. I am still working out his kitchen, it’s an Australian Christmas (think HOT…ie cold meat and salads), and I’m not totally in charge of everything.
When I have been thumbing through recipes, everything looks weird. It looks like summer food..well it is summer. But Christmas for me is in WINTER!!!! Anyways, I thought that I’d work with what I have and whip some dessert ideas up. I love sugar cookies. I hate rolling out sugar cookies. So I modified this recipe “The Best Rolled Sugar Cookies”
Minty WhiteChip Suga’ Cookies
about 24 cookies
.75 c. butter
1 c. white sugar
1.5 tsp vanilla
1 tsp. baking powder
2 c. all-purpose/self-rising flour
1/2 tsp. salt
.5 c. minty meltaways or any minty flavoured chip
.5 c. white chocolate chips
add butter and sugar // beat
add eggs // beat
add in vanilla // beat
add in baking powder, flour, salt // stir in
add chips // stir
put into a bowl and refrigerate for at least 1 hour
preheat oven 305/180. place spoonfuls of batter onto greased or lined cookie sheet. bake about 12-15 minutes or until slightly golden brown. place on cooling rack and enjoy!
They are just simple, easy, and very holiday like.
I’m excited to bring this to the party this Christmas, I promise I won’t be nervous. 🙂
