Today is a cookie baking kind of day. I was deeply saddened yesterday that there was not any chocolate candy in this house! How on earth did that happen?!? So, today, I HAD to bake some cookies.
I made M&M cookies first. This is the recipe I used: http://allrecipes.com/Recipe/Robbis-MM-Cookies/Detail.aspx. It is super easy and yummy. Sometimes, I just want a good M&M cookie. Plus, you can make them with the Holiday M&Ms so they kind of fit the Valentine's Day mood.
Next, I went with Ulitmate Chocolate Chip Cookies. I used the Crisco recipe for the regular shortening today. But, I really prefer this recipe: http://www.crisco.com/Recipes/Details.aspx?recipeID=2102. I was out of butter recipe sticks unfortunately. I like to try all sorts of different recipes for CC cookies. I love the recipe in the Williams-Sonoma cookbook but I really love Butter Flavor Crisco. :)
Last but not least, I made Reese's Chewy Chocolate Cookies.
Here's the recipe: http://www.hersheys.com/recipes/5366/REESE'S%20Chewy%20Chocolate%20Cookies.aspx#. It was on the package of peanut butter chips that I had. They taste like Reese's PB Cups. YUMMY!
So, that's what I made today. I plan to find a good home for these cookies tomorrow if weather cooperates.
Also tomorrow, I am making cupcakes or a cake for my friend's bday. She chose Red Velvet so that's what it will be. I already have my recipe set aside.
Until next time...
