Cookie Friday!

You'll see alot more cookies in the next few weeks, even some of my own creation ;) But to start off, I've got two types for you....

First up is a classic, witches hats or peanut butter blossoms. I made these using Nicole's flourless recipe and topped them off with Meltaway Kisses. While you can put all sorts of things in the base of the cookies, I love the simplicity of ingredients and how these melt in your mouth!

Flourless PB Blossoms


To play with some of the last apples from the orchard, I adapted a recipe from Maria to come up with Apple Oatmeal Scotchies. From her recipe, I swapped out cinnamon chips for butterscotch chips. I also made my usual sub's of WWW flour instead of AP and Smart Balance 50/50 sticks instead of butter.

Do you like to make favorites over the holidays or try new things? I'm doing a bit of both this year (or planning to). Now if only I could find the time...

I don't have old favorites, since I'm still a new cook, so I guess that means I'll be trying new things. Looking forward to our cookie swap party. You know how much of a sweet tooth I am :)
Weekend plans - attend Adam's xmas party and bake some cookies!! :D
Oh yeah, there will probably be some exercise in there. I think I'm going to skip the weekend run. It's SO cold out and I'm being a baby ;)

I desperately want some of those apple butterscotch cookies. Sound delicious.

I am all about the old favorites. Something about the holiday season just makes me want to go back to my roots. Hence all the comfort food I've been eating lately!

Megan said...

There are always favorites we have to make, but I like testing out new things every year too. Love PB blossoms -- especially when the cookie is barely bigger than the kiss!

chrystad72 said...

yum!!! looks awesome!! I like to make old favorites. Since I dont eat cookies a whole lot during the year its something I look forward to. I do try to sneak in a new recipe or two though. It is fun to experiment a bit!
