Chocolate Snowcaps

Chocolate Snowcaps

Chocolate Snowcaps

Chocolate snowcaps are another old classic cookie that is popular around Christmas.  Little balls of chocolate dough are rolled in powdered sugar and placed on a baking sheet. As they bake, they spread out and develop cracks, that reveal the chocolate cookie underneath, leaving behind a cracked powdered sugar coating. Cool looking and delicious tasting.

Jam Thumbprints

Jam Thumbprint Cookies have long been a favorite holiday cookie. This, like most thumbprint cookie recipes, is the same standard recipe with loads of butter and dabbed with dot of jam, but I love the addition of the coconut that Ina Garten uses. Not a common addition in the typical thumbprint, but I think it makes a big difference. This cookie is a winner - give it a try! Bake these on a plain, ungreased baking sheet. Don't use a silpat or the cookie will spread too much.
