Although Christmas is over, I am still playing catch-up when it comes to updating my blog with the Christmas cookies I managed to make this year. My goal was 12. I’ve got a few more to post, but I’m not sure I quite made it to 12. Still, I made lots of other desserts this year, so certainly no regrets.
Cookie Candy Cups
Original Toll House Cookie Dough:
- 2 1/4 Cups Flour
- 1 tsp. Baking Soda
- 1 tsp. Salt
- 3/4 Cup Butter, softened
- 3/4 Cup Sugar
- 3/4 Cup Brown Sugar
- 1 tsp. Vanilla
- 2 Eggs
- Peanut Butter Cups
- Hershey Kisses
Preheat oven to 375. In large bowl combine butter, sugars, and vanilla, beat until creamy. Beat in eggs. Gradually add dry ingredients.
Roll teaspoons full of dough into balls and place in mini muffin tin lined with paper liners. Bake 12 minutes.
Remove from oven and immediately press unwrapped chocolates into center of each muffin cup.
These were a big hit with the kids as well as the adults that visited our home this holiday season. Definitely a cookie I’ll be making again throughout the year, and for this I am — Simply Grateful.
