When I think about treats for Valentine’s Day, generally, I aim to have a sweet for the girls and something savoury for G. I thought this year would be no different.
As you might have guessed from the photo, sweet wins. I’m a victim of my chocolate love.
Now, while we all know that white chocolate isn’t exactly chocolate (there are no cocoa solids in white chocolate), there is still room for its cocoa buttery creaminess. White Chocolate-dipped strawberries? White chocolate lattes? White chocolate truffles? Yes, yes and yes.
Let me introduce you to these White Chocolate Cinnamon Cookies: your soon-to-be new favourite way to enjoy white chocolate. A combination of spelt flour for nuttiness, cinnamon for subtle spiciness and white chocolate for sweet creaminess form a trifecta of flavour perfection.
Valentine’s Day is around the corner and say I love you with these cookies for your sweetheart. Consider these a subtle Valentine treat – no pink or red but still perfectly sweet. Be warned: it’s hard to keep these around for long when the girls see them at our house. You may want to hide away the ones for your Valentine!
Tips and Suggestions:
- Only have salted butter on hand? Substitute it and use only a pinch of salt rather than 3/4 teaspoon as specified above.
- The unbaked, wrapped cookie dough keeps in the refrigerator for weeks and in the freezer for months. Have homemade cookies ready when you want them!
- If you haven’t tried it, the paper towel tube trick will keep your cookies perfectly round. I’ve used this when making pinwheels with this cookie dough, round chocolate chip cookies with this recipe and with shortbread.
