Nutty Chocolate Dollop Cookies Recipe:
A buttery cookie covered in walnuts and almonds with a dollop of Chocolate on the top.
The Santa Claus is coming tonight riding on a sleigh… So let’s just, jiggle bells jingle bells jingle all the way. Oh! What fun it is to ride in a one-horse open sleigh…
I know that’s not how the jingle goes,I’ve mixed two of my childhood favourite Christmas jingles there. Christmas has always been special to me, although being a Hindu it wasn’t really a festival in the family, but I went to a missionary school where I was always quite fascinated by all the lights and glitter that adorned the little church in our school. I remembered by heart every jingle and poem that our Sisters taught us and was without fail a part of the Choir and sung with all my heart during the masses. My enthusiasm as a matter of fact very soon got this festival an inclusion into the list of our family festivals. Every year Mom would cook us some special dinner, bring a small Christmas tree and often we’d have our dinners sitting around a bonfire that Dad would arrange. Good old days they were, but look now how times have flown and I can’t have my mom do all those arrangements for me anymore. Now that I am doing it all myself, I do realize she must have been a supermom, for how otherwise could she have done it all without a frown to perfection. I am still struggling to make sure that I can put it all together by Christmas dinner. The special Christmas cookies are done and are looking absolutely beautiful as they are cooling off on the wire rack. I’ve made a nutty cookie topped up with a dollop of melted chocolate and as I write these lines there comes Mr. H walking with my cookie in his hand and says “Hmm Yumm”. That’s a relief; hope fully Santa likes it too. I shall talk no more and leave you with the recipe and some pictures to droll over.
