Last night, I finally made some Christmas cookies..the first batch of many! I made Toblerone Shortbread cookies (thanks Lyne for providing us with your friend's recipe!) and they look delicious. I have to be honest and say that I've only eaten one so far and it was likely too warm to get the true effect of it yumminess. I find that sugar cookies and shortbread cookies taste better after a day or two. Of course, the KitchenAid mixer (which hereonafter will be referred to as "Martha" for obvious reasons) was wonderful as always. Martha whipped up those cookies in no time. It even worked well to mix the chocolate chunks from the chocolate bar.
I made the first batch and decided the cookies clearly needed more chocolate so I chopped up some larger chunks and added them. Then, I topped each cookie off with a piece of Toblerone. I could only find the miniature ones at the grocery store so they were perfect for this.

"Every cookie should have a chocolate bar in it." - Trudy (Connor and I shared a cookie for lunch today and it's much yummier once they have cooled.)
