My little top chef has returned to the kitchen. He has been making breakfasts and helping me with dinners. But his preference now is to bake. For MY birthday, he gave me a cookie cookbook for us to use together. Of course we are using the recipes as guides and adapting as we see fit.
We started with a simple triple chip cookie (semi-sweet chocolate, milk chocolate and peanut butter) using a basic toll house dough. These were shared with neighbors and some were set aside in the freezer to go in Arielle’s Hanukah care package.
Next, mini chip snowball cookies. We wanted ours to look like real snowballs, so there was a powdered sugar blizzard in our kitchen!
Last up was double chocolate chunk cookies. These were surprisingly good, most people’s favorite, with just the right level of sweetness (meaning not too sweet). Cam will brought these to share at the Tae Kwan Do holiday party – they disappeared pretty quickly.
Plans for the next cookies – oatmeal scotchies. And I am supposed to be losing weight before the next running season, uh oh!
