Favorite Ingredient Friday - Cookie Edition

This week I received the Kraft Food & Family Magazine and it has a lot of great holiday recipes - just in time for the FIF Cookie Edition! I haven't tried this recipe yet, but I sure plan on making it soon!

Chocolate Candy Cane Cookies

1. 1 pkg. (8 oz.) PHILADELPHIA Cream Cheese, softened
2. 3/4 cup (1-1/2 sticks) butter, softened
3. 1 cup sugar
4. 2 tsp. vanilla
5. 2-1/2 cups flour
6. 1/2 tsp. baking soda
7. 4 squares BAKER'S Semi-Sweet Baking Chocolate, melted
8. 1 pkg. (6 oz.) BAKER'S Premium White Baking Chocolate
9. 12 hard peppermint candies, crushed

PREHEAT oven to 350ºF. Beat cream cheese, butter, sugar and vanilla in large bowl with electric mixer on medium speed until well blended. Add flour and baking soda; mix well. Blend in semi-sweet chocolate.

SHAPE tablespoonfuls of dough into 52 balls. Roll each ball into 3-inch-long rope. Place, 2 inches apart, on baking sheet, bending top of each slightly to resemble a candy cane.

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

Is that magazine not the best?? M ex husband worked for Kraft so I started getting it years ago before they put it out for the public. I have always thought it was very well done!!!

Love that picture of those PB cookies!!! YUM.
