Recipe tips:

  • Dough can be wrapped in plastic wrap and refrigerated overnight or refrigerated for a few days. This is a great make ahead dough for fresh cookies. 
  • The dough can also be frozen. Tightly wrap the cookie dough log in plastic wrap, then into a freezer bag. Freeze for up to two months, thaw in the refrigerator before slicing.
  • Baked cookies can be frozen in an airtight container or freezer bag for up to one month. Thaw and serve.
  • Don't skip refrigerating the dough. This prevents the dough from spreading as the cookies bake.
  • Make sure to use the spoon and level technique when measuring your flour so the dough is the right consistency.
  • If you'd like to frost these cookies, cool completely, then frost with your favorite frosting. We love this cream cheese frosting. You can also sprinkle more chopped Candy Cane Kisses on top, or decorate with sprinkles.
