Twelve Days of Christmas - Christmas Pudding Cookies

The name of these cookies is slightly misleading as apart from appearance, they actually have nothing to do with Christmas puddings. I'm not a fan of Christmas pudding, I don't like any of the fruit or alcohol but they do look so lovely and festive with the holly on top, that I thought I'd try to incorporate them in my own way but with something much tastier. For this bake you can use any cookie recipe you like, it's really more about the decoration. They make such a sweet things to have out for guests that might pop round, or four your own nibbling over the festive period.

-Preheat the oven to 160°C and line two baking trays with greaseproof paper.

- In a large bowl beat together the butter and sugar and then beat in the egg.

- Add your flour, cocoa and bicarbonate of soda and mix until you have a smooth but thick dough. If it's too dry and doesn't come together add a splash of milk to help it along.

- Mix in the chocolate chips and make sure they are spread evenly through the mixture.

- Divide into 12 just slightly larger than golf ball sized lumps of dough and space them well on your trays as they will spread. Give them a press to flatten them out just a little, and then bake for 12 minutes.

-When your cookies are completely cool, melt your white chocolate and start to spoon over one half of the cookies. It doesn't have to be tidy, the messier the better so it give the impression of the cream on top of a Christmas pudding.

- Before the chocolate dries, add any decoration you like. You can use sprinkles or cut out some shapes of your own. Leave on trays for everything to dry and then enjoy...I would recommend with milk. 

They would also make rather sweet last minute gifts if you're still stuck for presents, or just as little extras.
