After the Badger’s amazing win over Ohio State on Saturday, I thought it would be appropriate to make red cookies in their honor.
Ok, I lied. I was planning on making them all day, the win was just an added bonus. 🙂
These cookies are from one of my absolute favorite food blogs How Sweet It Is. If you are ever looking for a great dessert to try, check out Jessica’s blog. I have made several of them (some before I started blogging) including her Pumpkin Pie Spice and Mac and Cheese Cupcakes.
You can find the recipe for these delicious cookies here.
Overall they were not at all difficult to make. I had everything I needed on hand, and they turned out fantastically!
The only thing I’m not sure about is how solid the dough turned out. The cookies did not melt down at all, they basically stayed however they were formed onto the cookie sheet. Is that normal? Should my dough have been more…..doughy?
Luckily the solidity of the dough had nothing to do with the taste. They still tasted like delicious chocolatey cookies. I also love that it only made about 15 cookies. That is the perfect amount for the husband and I to both have some straight out of the oven and have a few leftover for later. Most of the time I don’t need 3 dozen cookies in my house. Although, then I usually end up taking them to work, and other people seem to enjoy that. 🙂
Ease: A+, really simple. Just mix the ingredients, throw some dough on a cookie sheet and you are done.
Taste: A, really solid chocolate chip cookies. Although, I think I would add more chocolate chips next time. You do get a chocolatey flavor from the cocoa powder as well, but I like the gooeyness of the chocolate chips too.
Would I make them again? Most likely. As soon as I figure out if the dough was supposed to be that thick, I would definitely like to make them again……or possibly even for Christmas cookies?
Speaking of Christmas……lets take a poll.
When is the appropriate time to start listening to
I LOVE Christmas music, but I know others are not so keen on listening to it in October. After Thanksgiving is a rule of thumb that I’ve heard from some people. Thoughts?
