Merry Christmas to all of my readers, from the great state of Texas! I hope you all received some special kitchen tools from Santa, I know I did. But more on that later, today was our first of two Christmas dinners and I would say it went off pretty much without a hitch.
Since I am writing this on Christmas eve (because even bloggers need a day off now and then) I thought I would keep it festive, so I saved one last holiday cookie recipe to share with all of you :) I have some great memories from when I was a little girl and I am going to share one of those moments with you. I come from Canada, and if you know your geography you know that no matter where you are in Canada, winter means snow, and a lot of it. Well you knew where to find all the neighborhood kids when the snow started falling; outside enjoying the winter wonderland (although I no longer feel that way). And when we finally were convinced to come inside every single part of us was frozen, sometimes even my mittens had icicles on them lol. My grandmother would always make us hot cocoa with little tiny marshmallows in them, and it is a drink that I still enjoy today on a chilly night. Well when I came across a recipe for hot cocoa cookies I couldn't pass them up! Lets get to the warm gooey goodness that is this cookie :)
6) Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper. Working with one piece of dough at a time, dust the dough generously with flour and roll out between 2 pieces of parchment paper until about 1/8" thick. Cut out shapes using 2 to 4 inch cookie cutters and transfer to the prepared baking sheets. Gather the scraps and refrigerate until firm; re roll once to cut out more cookies. Refrigerate the cutouts until firm, about 30 minutes.
