I’ve been craving chocolate chip cookies lately. And when I say lately I mean always. They’re my “I need a chocolate feel-good fix.” But I wanted to mix something else in with them this time so I thought I’d crank them up a bit with cranberries and walnuts. And try to tell myself at the same time I’m eating healthier. It worked for .0001 seconds.
Dried cranberries. Chocolate chunks. Walnuts. Who’s ready?
Just cream, combine, mix and stir the ingredients together. Easy. as. that.
The other reason I love chocolate chip cookies. So customizable. It’s fun to just play with different combinations. What’s your favorite cookie mix in? – there’s chocolate … semi-sweet, milk, dark… and in different sizes … mini, regular, chunk or wafer-sized yum. There’s peanut butter, butterscotch, mint and other morsels. Then there’s nuts, fruits, coconut, oats, m&m’s and much more. It’s endless what you can make with a simple cookie base.
And then you end up with dough to play with. Play dough.
Scoop or roll into 1 1/2 inch balls.
Bake and eat.
That was easy.
And if you want, drizzle the tops and dress them up with a little melted white chocolate.
