Pure decadence. That’s what I’m talking about.
Chocolate chip cookie dough thumbprints have earned a place on your holiday cookie tray, at your birthday party, and in your mouth because they answer the age old question: What came first, the chicken or the egg? Answer: Who cares, did you know that we can put cookie dough on top of a cookie?! Game = on.
I’ll be honest – I struggle to accomplish my daily tasks. There’s always more to do on my list than there is time in the day. As I learn more about myself (Discover Who You Are – read it!) I’m also finding out that it’s ok to need to sit in front of the tv for a couple hours every night instead of driving myself into the ground trying to get through my to do list.
If you add a holiday in there along with all the regular needs of a house and family, things start to get a little overwhelming. Now I need to shop for presents? Decorate? Make seven different kinds of cookies? How am I going to find time for this?
Luckily I’ve been able to tackle the shopping in the last few weeks, and this week I’m committing to making one treat every day to pop in the freezer or stress eat as I make the next one. I know we all have our favorites (I’ve already tackled the peanut butter blossoms, cut outs are tomorrow!), but sometimes it’s fun to try a new cookie. That’s the beauty of Christmas. You can throw one new cookie on the plate of classics and you know that everybody’s going to be happy.
These cookies are magic. Soft, chewy chocolate chip cookies are baked and then immediately topped with a ball of sweet and salty cookie dough. The heat from the cookie glues them together and makes for a beautiful marriage. Drizzle on a little chocolate and you have one of the cutest cookies you’ve ever seen.
