Peppermint White Chocolate Chip Cookies

I think I came up with these as a result of surfing the web and adding a few ideas together. These are really, really good. Be sure to use the parchment or wax paper or you will have a terrible mess on your hands. (Guess how I know this. ;) )

I may have had a little extra candy cane as I didn't measure. I just smashed tiny canes canes one at a time until it looked about right. I also chopped up white chocolate I had on hand instead of buying a bag of chips. They turned out fantastic. The parchment paper is a must. I also used a metal spatula to push any melted candy cane from the edges back into the cookie as soon as it came out of the oven and then let them set of a minuted before moving them to a cooling rack.

I've been making this recipe for years. I can't believe I haven't reviewed it until now. These cookies are nice and chewy, and have a good peppermint flavor without being overwhelmingly minty. These are the one cookie I make every year for Christmas, and family ask where they are if it's close to Christmas and I haven't made them yet.

I had a ton of Hershey's peppermint kisses STILL leftover from the holidys, so I grated about 1/4 cup and then cut another 1/2 cup into chunks and added them in place of candy canes and white chocolate chips! Delicious! Very sweet- get the milk out!
