Christmas is almost here! I love this time of year! I look forward to taking part in cookies exchanges to raise money for No Kid Hungry. This year I participated in The PinterTest Kitchen‘s Cookie exchange! I sent off my delicious cookies over to Allison from The PinterTest Kitchen, Deanna from Seduction in the Kitchen (oo la la!) and Megan from The Emotional Baker. These white chocolate and cardamom cookies are my go-to cookies during the holidays. Their chewy, smell amazing and are so unique!
I’ve made these cookies for years but, for some reason, I never actually put the recipe up on the blog! I was inspired by thandai masala, a mixture of ground nuts and warm spices used in a milk-based drink around Holi. The kitchen smells like cardamom when you’re done baking them and it truly feels like the holidays. I used the base recipe for Jacque Torres’s Chocolate Chip Cookies with a few changes here and there. Don’t fix what ain’t broken, amirite?
I topped my cookies with Christmas sprinkles to make them more festive! I hope Megan, Deanna and Allison enjoyed them! What’re your favorite cookies to make for the holidays?
I received the most delicious Cranberry Bliss Cookies from The Emotional Baker, Vegan Chocolate Chip Molasses Crinkle Cookies from The Baking Fairy and Gingerbread Thumbprint Cookies from Fantastical Sharing (I ate all of these way too fast!)! Check out their recipe and more here:
