Jazz Up the Recipe
This is a simple, easy, but delicious recipe. If you want to jazz it up a bit more you can add some festive touches to the cookies.
- Melt white chocolate and drizzle over the completed cookies in any pattern of your choice. This works best with a plastic candy bottle with a small tip, but you can also use a plastic baggie and snip the corner.
- Add food coloring to the white chocolate in one or more colors and drizzle over cookies in a pattern.
- Add sprinkles to the tops of the cookies before they cool completely and they will melt into the top a bit and create a unique pattern. You could also sprinkle on colored sugar, which is available in the cake section of just about any grocery.
- Stamp a small emblem into the top of a partially hardened, coated cookie. You can do this with mini cookie cutters, cookie presses, stamps or a small toothpick to etch an initial or other item.
Get creative and have fun with these cookies. Because the recipe is so simple, it is easy to add a few additional touches and create a unique cookie that can be your signature piece.
