Easy Christmas Cookies with Salted Butter and Chocolate

two-colored christmas cookies

Making Christmas cookies is one of the best moment of the holiday season: choose an interesting recipe, get to work with the whole family, knead, roll out, and then wait until the sweet smell of the biscuits will pervade your living area.

This Christmas cookies recipe has two ingredients that complement one another: salted butter and dark chocolate, a delicate but provocative combination. Also the appearance of this Christmas cookie is pretty, a two-colored twist that can become a sweet Christams decoration.

Our doses of the Christmas cookies butter recipe will allow you to make 50 cookies. Remember that you have to let the dough cool in the fridge for more than 3 hours and half before kneading it, so be sure to have enough time to prepare them.
