pizza wedges.


That's what we call these holiday staples in my house.  I don't know man, they're just really good and really good looking.  They add a little geometry to your Christmas cookie plate, you know?

Yaddimean, yadidimsayin though?

Sorry.
I'm so sorry.
Keak just....snuck up on me.

...Right? Right?

I'm sorry, not funny.

Anyway.

Pizza Wedges
adapted from an old Good Housekeeping magazine

6 tablespoons butter, softened
1/3 cup granulated sugar
1/3 cup packed brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 lage egg
1 1/4 cup flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 heaping cup mini M&Ms
2 ounces white chocolate, melted

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.  Grease a large cookie sheet.

Cream butter and sugars with an electric mixer, then add vanilla and the egg.  Reducing the speed to low, slowly add dry ingredients until just incorporated.  Fold in 3/4 of the M&M's.


With floured or greased hands (spraying your hands with PAM like its lotion...a weird thing), turn the dough onto the cookie sheet and separate into two equal mounds.  They round and flatten until they are 5 inches in diameter.  Placing the rounds in opposite corners of the sheet ensures that they will not expand and smush into each other.


Sprinkle remaining M&M's onto to top of each cookie.  Bake for 14-16 minutes.

Allow to cool slightly, and then slice each cookie into twelve wedges.  Transfer to a wire rack and allow to cool completely.


Once cool, drizzle with white chocolate.  Store in an airtight container with wax paper between each layer.
