I know I’ve already shared these – kind of – but I think they’re worth delving into a little deeper. Because when you think of it, they really are the most perfect Christmas cookie. And they require no icing or sprinkles – all the decorating is on the inside.
My friend (ironically, a decorator) Karl came up with the idea to wrap shortbread dough around Turtles and bake them – it was his (unintentional) gift to me; a perfect Christmas package. I’ve since schemed what else could be wrapped in shortbread dough and baked – anything you might find in your stocking, really. But wrapping something else means you’re not wrapping Turtles, which would be a shame. They truly are little bundles of comfort and joy.
And who doesn’t love a surprise inside?
