White Chocolate Candy Cane Cookies
Recipe by Olivia B
Tis the Season...
The holiday season isn’t long enough for all the baking I want to do. Baking at any other time of year pales in comparison, so I’m trying to cram in as much of it as I can. These cookies are super easy to make. Crush up some candy canes and throw them into a standard cookie dough. My food processor was being temperamental, so my candy cane chunks were a bit large. Not wanting them to turn into candy cane powder, I stopped pulverizing before I should have. They still turned out great, but maybe a bit more crunchy than expected. Next time, I would crush them up a bit more. The recipe I used was adapted from one I saw in a magazine. Really though, you could use your own favorite cookie recipe and just add crushed candy canes to it.

  1. Preheat oven to 400F and line two baking sheets with parchment or silicone mats.
  2. In a small bowl, combine flour, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.
  3. Beat butter and sugar with an electric mixer until pale and fluffy (approx 3 mins).
  4. Add egg and mix until fully combined. Add vanilla.
  5. Reduce speed to low and add in flour mixture. Mix until just combined.
  6. Add in candy canes and chocolate chips and mix until just incorporated.
  7. Using a large cookie scoop (3 Tbsp), scoop cookies, placing 6 per sheet.
  8. With floured hands, roll each one into a ball.
  9. Bake for 7-8 mins until cookies are crisp on the edges but still very soft in the center. Cool completely on cookie sheets.
