I love baking cookies during Christmas. Why? Because it reminds my of my childhood Christmas memories back in Indonesia when my Mom, sister and I got busy in the kitchen making tons of butter cookies and sugar cookies. My Mom's kitchen was full of wonderful cookies aroma baking in the oven and it was really one of the oh-so-happy moments in welcoming Christmas!
Last Sunday, I thought of kicking off my Christmas 2012's baking frenzy by baking M&M's butter cookies. I used the basic recipe of Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies that I've used for a couple of times before. I replaced the chocolate chips with a handful of rainbow M&M's chocolate candies and some chopped white chocolate.
My freshly baked M&M's Butter Cookies.
In my opinion, the cookies taste better with M&M's than the usual chocolate chips. You should give this recipe a try!
Finally, I have some Christmas baking ideas that keep flying around in my head for quite some time now but I am waiting for the right time to actually materialize them. Can't wait to be busy baking again!
