As you’re reading this the hubs and I are in NYC. I’ve pre-written this post so you’d have something to read while I was away. Today I’m talking cookie exchange! Does anyone have a cookie exchange party to attend this season? I’ve never participated in one, but they sound so fun! You bake one type of cookie and come away with a bunch of others + recipes. Here are some of the cookies I think would be the talk of the town.
This counts as a cookie right? It’s technically cookie dough and candy and is brought to you by The Pioneer Woman. Make a lot, these never last long. Ree shows you variations, but my favorite is peanut butter cookie with Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups.
I took advantage of a quiet Sunday afternoon and got back in the kitchen to bake. I was craving a warm chocolate chip cookie. When I traveled for work I often stayed at Hyatt Place hotels and one located in Dallas would heat up a chocolate chip and peanut butter cookie for me almost every night. It was a simple comfort of home that made hotel living easier to handle. I hope you enjoy this recipe!
1. Preheat oven to 350°
2. Beat butter and sugars until creamy. Add vanilla and egg, beat until incorporated
3. Add flour, baking soda, and salt. Mix well. Add chocolate chips until incorporated
4. Drop by the spoonful onto greased baking sheet. Makes about 12 cookies.
5. Bake for 13-18 minutes, until edges are slightly brown
6. Let cool and serve
Until next post…xoxo Becca
