I had a baking itch this past weekend. What’s better than a fresh baked cookie? Not much! Butter, sugar, eggs, flour, vanilla, mix-ins. Using your standard chocolate chip cookie recipe (technically it was a mesquite flour chocolate chip cookie recipe), and then assembling extra ingredients to make a variety of different combos.
Gather your ingredients.
Cream the butter and sugar. Add the egg and the vanilla. Slowly add in the flour in batches. Then divide the dough.
- Chocolate chip (classic!)
- Chocolate chip pecan
- Goji pecan
- Oatmeal raisin
- Oatmeal raisin pecan
Using a cookie scoop (or a spoon), place on a baking sheet. Note: I placed them close together so I could freeze them, so I’d have my own “break and bake” - minus the breaking – in the freezer. Fresh baked cookies in a moments notice, but made from scratch? Yes, please!
The key is in a little creativity. Get baking!
