I made the White Chocolate Chip version (but substituted mini chocolate chips). My cookies turned out very flat almost like a crisp. The taste is great but they don't look like your photo. Any suggestions as to what I might have done wrong?
Unknown: The ingredients that you use are going to make a big difference in this and most cookie recipes. I recently tried a different brand of all purpose flour which should have produced the same results as the other brand but all of a sudden all of my cookies were super thick and cake-like. It's unfortunate but once you get used to the flour, butter, sugar, etc that you are using it gets easier. I would suggest adding 2+ tablespoons flour and/or replacing some of all of the brown sugar with granulated sugar.
I’d like to include the candy on top with the chocolate drizzle that I see in the photograph but the recipe doesn’t indicate that step. Do the candies get added once the cookies come out if the oven? And how is the drizzle made?
The candy is crushed candy canes that were sprinkled on the cookies when removed from the oven. The chocolate drizzle was chocolate chips (or a chopped chocolate bar) that was melted in a double boiler and drizzled over the cookies. To melt the chocolate, bring some water to a simmer in a pot, place the chocolate chips or chopped chocolate in a bowl and place it on top of the pot and let the chocolate melt. Choose a smaller pot to simmer the water and a larger bowl for the chocolate, so that the bowl forms a seal when on top of the pot without the bottom of the bowl being in the simmering water.
You are the BEST!!
