Red, White and Chewy All Over Cookies? I think I just started the Holiday Season…Cookies and Bars / November 8, 2016
I’m not sure about Christmas music right after I throw my Jack O’ Lanterns in the trash can, but it’s happening anyway. Why, my leaves are still on the trees! And yet, the whole world is ready to jump in with tinsel, bows, and 30% off on decor. I suppose I must do something to officially throw my Santa hat into the ring as well, yes?
Maybe you’ve been searching for the right recipe to signal your entrance into the holiday of all holidays? Go no further. After being inspired by a recipe in one of my many Food & Wine cookbooks, I was struck when reading a recipe which suggested browning the butter before adding it to the dough, as noted by Lori Baker from Baker and Banker, for her ultimate Chocolate Chip Cookies. But why couldn’t I add something different to the dough as well? And maybe change up the look and taste of these to fit with the celebrations to come?
