Chocolate Candy Cane Cookies

WHAT YOU NEED:

1 pkg. (250 g) Philadelphia Brick Cream Cheese, softened

3/4 cup butter, softened

1 cup sugar

2 tsp. vanilla

2-1/2 cups flour

1/2 tsp. baking soda

4 oz. Baker's Semi-Sweet Chocolate, melted

1 pkg. (170 g) Baker's White Chocolate

12 hard peppermint candies, crushed

MAKE IT

HEAT oven to 350ºF.

BEAT first 4 ingredients in large bowl with mixer until blended. Add flour and baking soda; mix well. Blend in semi-sweet chocolate.

SHAPE tablespoonfuls of dough into 52 balls; roll each into 3-inch rope.

Place, 2 inches apart, on baking sheets sprayed with cooking spray, bending top of each to resemble candy cane.

BAKE 10 to 12 min. or until lightly browned; cool 5 min. on baking sheets.

Remove to wire racks; cool completely.

MICROWAVE white chocolate as directed on package; drizzle over cookies.

Sprinkle with crushed candies. Let stand until chocolate is firm.

Note

A minute or two can make the difference between perfectly baked cookies and over-baked cookies. Since oven temperatures can vary, check cookies at the lowest bake time and remove from the oven when tops are lightly browned and centres are just set.
