Chocolate Candy Cane Cookies with CONNIE

Some days are just made for making cookies and today was one of those days for me and my niece. Connie and I made the Pioneer Woman's holiday Chocolate Candy Cane Cookies in between telling a few stories and getting caught up on each others lives. The cookies are beautiful and ever so tasty, a wonderful chocolate shortbread! We both recommend them to you. I suggest spending a delightful day in the kitchen as soon as you can with someone you love as much as I love Connie. Somehow creating together in a kitchen bonds you just like white chocolate sticks to chocolate cookies and candy canes!

We did make our cookies a little different from the original recipe. To cut the time down, we put the dough in the freezer for 1/2 of an hour and it made quick work of chilling the dough. Instead of rolling the cookies into balls, we chose to roll the dough out and cut it with a cute cutter. Our version of the recipe is below.
