In anticipation of all the sweets of the season, I picked up the Holiday Cookies edition of Martha Stewart a few weeks ago. Finally this week we found time together to make a batch and we started with Double-Chocolate Cookies with Holiday Stencils (p. 62). Upon the first read through, I didn't catch that only part of the chocolate was to be melted, but fortunately it did not adversely affect the finally result too much. The first few actually had stencils but by the end we were just going for the free-form powdered sugar dusting!
Pretty easy, and very good! (And all gone.)
