C is for Copious amounts of Cookies because two of my friends’ birthday’s are coming up, so I mixed together a couple batches of cookies to send them. If you know who these friends are, SHHHH don’t tell! ;)
Linking up with Alphabe-Thursday!
Chocolate Crinkle Cookies
These are your classic crinkle cookies, I can’t remember where I found my recipe, but it’s similar to this one (though, this isn’t quite the recipe I use, it should be fine. I might post my recipe later, if I feel like it.)
“Healthy” Chocolate Chip Cookies
I got the recipe for these “healthy” chocolate chip cookies from Chocolate Covered Katie, it’s her Best Healthy Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe, and you can find it HERE. I substituted water for milk and cashews for the mac nuts (didn’t feel like going back to the store).
As I was wandering around Pinterest the other day I came across a recipe for Lemon Crinkle Cookies.
Check out the Lemon Crinkle recipe here, at laurenslatest.com. (No, really, go check it out. She’s won awards.)
Now, I made Chocolate Crinkle Cookies over Christmas, and they were a hit. So, this version caught my eye.
I made it this afternoon, and I’m hooked. It’s basically the same cookie as the chocolate one (with the obvious differences) but this one seems so much healthier because it’s so light and lemony.
That’s why I’ve dubbed it the ‘gateway cookie’ you eat a few of these, thinking you’re still doing okay, but then you remember what’s actually all in them and BAM! You might as well dig into those Chocolate Raspberry truffles and Chocolate Chips cookie dough balls you made yesterday. Not to say that you shouldn’t eat a few of these, because if you eat one, you will want more.
I think next time I make them I will experiment a bit with the ingredients, for example substitute yogurt for the butter? We’ll see.
If you like lemon, or cookies, or anything delicious, you need to try these. Do it.
