Here’s my version of a new Christmas Cookie that fits the way we live today! It’s always so nice when old and new come together in wonderful way!

So, I was at the Betty Crocker site a few days ago and I saw a version of these cookies. My kids just happened to be there and saw it too.
Normally I pretty much never do an adaptation of something I just saw; especially something I just saw recently. Good or bad I like to do my own thing. These cookies are however the exception, only because chocolate chip is my family’s favorite cookie!
Here’s a brief rundown of the conversation we had right after checking out the cookie.
the boys: WHAT, you can make chocolate chip cookies for Christmas? That’s a Christmas Cookie?
me: Of course guys, it’s really nothing new, just a fun modern twist.
the boys: Hey! You knew about this (like it’s a GIANT secret) and didn’t tell us?
me: Well I didn’t think there was anything to say (as I was thinking..duh). It’s just a chocolate chip cookie dipped in chocolate…
the boys: Isn’t that the point? (seriously looking at me like I’m some kind of crazy woman missing the point).
me: What do you mean?
the boys: So Christmas Cookies can be cookies we L-O-V-E and would want to eat anytime of the year? Not just the ones we’re suppose to like because it’s Christmas?
me: Note to self – keep it simple, keep it good! I am SO doing Christmas cookies and treats that fit the way we live today!
Let’s take a look at what I did with this new Christmas Cookie. I’m quite sure once you have them like this you will want to make them again and again. Yes, they’re that good!
As you can see I start with my fresh home made chocolate chip cookies. You can make your cookies from scratch or from a mix, whatever you prefer.
