Last weekend was total Christmas chaos around here. Not only did I wrap all my Christmas presents, but I also finished all my Christmas baking! My housemate Gwen and I picked out all the recipes we wanted to try and then after a trip to Bulk Barn and Metro we got to work. Gwen wanted to make mint chocolate chip cookies and white chocolate cherry almond shortbread. I picked chocolate chip cookie dough truffles and candy cane biscotti. Once we got started there was chocolate and Christmas sprinkles everywhere… Darby was in charge of clean up
Here are some pictures of the treats we made, as well as the links to the recipes. Also, my friend Alicia introduced me to this amazing app called Rhonna Designs. This app lets you add all kinds of cool fonts, frames and filters to your photos. I spent way too much time tonight playing around with this
White Chocolate Cherry Almond Shortbread Cookies by the Girl Who Ate Everything
Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Truffles originally from of Love and Olive Oil
Mint Chocolate Chip Cookies by Annie’s Eats
The only modification I made to this recipe was to add mint chocolate chips instead of regular chips. I also made the cookies a lot smaller than was called for. How cute are these chips? My mom picked them up in the States.
Candy Cane Biscotti by Chatelaine
The only modification I made here was to make the biscotti logs smaller (I made 4 instead of 2) to have little bite sized pieces.
We wrapped up all the treats in cute little Santa bakery bags. Watch out Kingston friends… you may be lucky enough to receive one of these little goody bags for Christmas this year!
