Hey everyone! HAPPY TUESDAY!
Thanks for stopping by again! Today I’m sharing some of my favorite (and super easy) cookie recipes – perfect timing for Christmas! Can you believe it’s only 5 days away?! I haven’t turned off 93.9FM since the day after Thanksgiving sooo… I’m definitely in the Christmas spirit! I didn’t go all out with decorations this year because I got busy and kinda lazy but the tree is lit up and stockings are hung by the mantle. I could put up the icicle lights but in this weather, I think I’d turn into an icicle before finishing the lights so I don’t think I’ll be doing that!
Okay ON TO THE COOKIES. My favorite cookies of all time are regular old chocolate chip cookies. To me, there’s nothing better than fresh-baked chocolate chip cookies that are chewy, and slightly underdone, in the center. So the other weekend, I decided to do a bit of baking and came up with a few different cookies: chocolate chip, white chocolate cranberry, peanut butter, snickerdoodle, s’mores, and caramel & chocolate brookies. The chocolate chip, white chocolate cranberry, and s’mores cookies all have the same base (or at least they do when I bake them!!) so I’ll be sharing that recipe below the pictures 🙂 My snickerdoodles turned out AMAZING but I’m still perfecting the recipe to get a little more flavor.
In a mixing bowl (I have this one but recommend the smaller one to save on counter/storage space!), mix together eggs, softened butter (seriously, it needs to be soft), vanilla, and brown sugar until creamy (these are your “wet” ingredients)
In a separate bowl, mix together remaining ingredients (your “dry” ingredients)
Working in small portions, add dry ingredients to wet ingredients until mixed well – continue to do so until you’ve mixed all dry ingredients into the wet ingredients
Add mix-ins until well mixed
Scoop small portions of cookie onto a baking sheet and bake cookies for 9-11 minutes or until desired doneness
You’ll get about 3 dozen, or 36, cookies more or less depending on the size of your scoops!
What are YOUR favorite cookies? Favorite Christmastime desserts?!
