CANDY CANE COOKIES

I first fell in love with the candy cane and white chocolate combo with this Candy Cane Fudge. The flavors just are meant to be together. When I think of a holiday cookie this is it!

These are buttery, chewy, and full of flavor. The candy canes kind of melt when they bake.

HIGH ALTITUDE BAKING

King Arthur Flour says this: “At 3,500 feet, add 1 more tablespoon per recipe. For each additional 1,500 feet, add one more tablespoon.”

Since I’m at 5,000 ft I added 2 tablespoons of flour.

HOW TO KEEP COOKIES SOFT

I always make sure that my cookies are in an airtight container and I add a slice of bread to the container. This keeps cookies soft!
