I don’t think we’ve ever stood as close to one another as when we are all reaching into the bowl of cookie dough at once. No one wants to be left out of that!
Cream cheese is one of my favorite things ever. I’ve never made a recipe with cream cheese that I didn’t like. Even things I don’t like taste better with cream cheese.
These cookies were inspired by one gorgeous bag of dark brown sugar. They are soft, chewy cookies with a rich molasses flavor. Match made in heaven, if you ask me.
I can tell you one thing, I was not not NOT going to use the oven. Or the stove. I was even apprehensive about using the air popper to make popcorn. So, we ate muddy buddies. Hooray!
I like the idea of this cookie bark. Since there’s no eggs and no leavening agent, they are flat and crispy, making them easy to transport to whatever crazy activity might come up.
This blog is dedicated to cookies. All types of cookies. But let’s face it, when it comes right down to it, it’s all about chocolate chip.
I had been wanting to make some caramel-stuffed cookies anyway, and since it was my niece’s birthday, I decided to use Rolo candies instead of caramels to stuff the cookies.
The idea of this cookie dough dip really appeals to me. It’s all about the chocolate chips. The dip, and whatever you dip in it, is just a delivery system for the chocolate chips.
This is not my first time baking with graham crackers. In fact, adding some graham cracker crumbs to the chocolate chip cookies is just SO fantastic. It gives a little unexpected oomph to the cookies. I figured some marshmallow frosting would put these right over the top.
I used butterscotch chips, nuts, coconut, m&m’s, and of course oats. However, I think they would be fantastic with some raisins or dates, maybe a little orange zest and cinnamon, or peanut butter candies. Honestly, you can just use whatever you like, or whatever you have in your pantry.
Even if you don’t have an egg allergy, you might want these anyway, because the substitute ingredient makes these so soft, so rich, and so flavorful, you literally will not miss the eggs in these chocolate chip cookies.
When you’re just the tiniest bit uncomfortable with the latest situation life threw at you, it helps to have something constant to comfort you. Something you recognize. Something that’s exactly what you expect.
I have a strong belief that there is no discomfort which cannot be softened by baked goods made with buttermilk and chocolate chips.
I suppose some teens would not be amused by something as simple as a chocolate chip spider on a cookie, but I can count on my kids to find some enjoyment in this. Although, to be fair, I’m pretty sure the boys enjoyed the cookies more than the spiders.
I almost didn’t post this recipe. Almost. My son, The Lizard, convinced me to do it, between bites. The thing is, this recipe didn’t turn out exactly the way I planned it in my head. But it tastes so marvelously, fantastically decadent, I knew I had to share it with you.
