France Cookies: 100% Festive

These France cookies are wonderfully moist and will keep in the freezer from some time so can be made ahead. Just wait until the last minute to drizzle the chocolate on top.

Though if you aren’t careful, they may disappear from the freezer before you have the chance.

An easy way to drizzle the chocolate over top of any cookie is to finely chop the chocolate and place in a heavy duty resealable bag and submerge in boiling water. After chocolate has melted, carefully knead until smooth and then snip off the very corner of the bag.
