I have had cookies on the brain. And not my usual decorated sugar cookies. Good old-fashion, Santa-worthy cookies. I’ve been making cookies like a mad woman. It’s been great!
I want to share some cookies recipes to get you ready for your cookie exchange or for neighbor gifts or to leave for Santa Claus on Christmas Eve. December will be filled with cookies!
These first ones are an absolute dream! These are a copy cat of a cookie from a local eatery called Cutler’s. They are a divine sandwich AND cookie shop. One of their best cookies is their Mint Brownie Cookies. My friend Katie brought them to a potluck and I asked for the, I assumed, super secret recipe. She replied, “Oh, it’s just on their blog.” Holy cannoli, that’s huge! I don’t even have to be sneaky and clandestine. They gave it to me, just gave it to me! I love you Cutler’s!
Now, these cookies take a little time and effort to make. Only because they require two different frostings. But, please, go to the effort. They are worth it.
Here’s a preview: A thick, chewy, chocolatey, brownie like cookie, topped with mint buttercream and topped with decadent chocolate buttercream. Yowza!
Leave these for Santa and you will surely get WHATEVER is on your list ;).
