When winter first arrives, it brings with it a sense of excitement and possibility. A quiet street covered with a dusting of fresh snow. Those cheery, red Starbucks cups. New cashmere sweaters and cozy winter boots. And of course, all sorts of holiday treats. But before long, the holidays are over, those once new boots are spotted with dirt and salt, and there's not a red cup in sight. The only thing that remains? The cold weather. And after a week like the one we just had in New York--a week of frigid temperatures and biting winds, a week where the wonder of the holiday season is a distant memory but the promise of spring still feels oh so far off--a girl needs to do something to break out of the winter rut. So I've decided that if the cold weather insists on sticking around past December, then the holiday treats ought to as well. It's only fair. These minty chocolate crackle cookies are rich, pepperminty, and make the dregs of winter just a little merrier.
