Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Truffles. I’ve never liked chocolate chip cookies.

Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Truffles

Go ahead and throw tomatoes at me if you’d like, but I don’t like ’em. They’re just a plain old cookie, after all, with a few studs of chocolate chips in them. They’re nothing special to me, unless you get some cookie dough-action before it meets its fate in the oven. Now you’re talkin’. I’d much rather drown my sorrows in a bowl of cookie dough than nibble a dozen “cookies” dipped in milk. I know there are plenty of cookie-dough-nay-sayers out there… you know, the salmonella scare and all . Chilled dough is rolled into 1-inch balls. Those chilled dough balls are dipped in chocolate and then placed onto waxed paper to set.

Now that it's December, I am officially in the mood for some delicious holiday sweets!

Cravings - Holiday Cookies

I love having lots of sweet little cookies in my kitchen for guests who might pop in at this festive time of year (and of course for myself while I'm working at my little desk!) I used to have a great book of holiday cookie recipes, but somehow it seems to have gotten lost when we moved last year. Every recipe had a little bit of history with each cookie, and I just loved telling the story of where each cookie came from as my friends and family enjoyed each little, teeny bite :) Now that the season is upon us again, I am trying to put together a great little list of beautiful holiday cookies that I can whip up while I'm bored (yea, cause that happens!) Hope you get inspired to bake up a little something! And finally, what good would a whole bunch of delicious cookies be without a fabulous handmade cookie jar??

Seriously. Instead of writing a 1000 word paper, I browse through my bookmarks on my computer and decide what I want to bake. After figuring out my next culinary mission, I get right to it and start mixing my little heart away. Once everything is set and cooled, I figure, “Well… I already have all my materials out, why not bake something else?” Were these cookies worth it? Red Velvet Cheesecake Brownies.

Indianapolis, along with many other states in the Midwest, is coping with a huge ice storm that is supposed to cover us in over an inch of ice. Unfortunately the worst of the storm is supposed to come tonight. Today the school district that I work for was actually closed! With all this ice and wind coming our way, the chance of us losing electricity is very likely.

Yield: 16 large brownies or 24 smaller brownies Ingredients: Chocolate Chip Bars. The cookies in these photos came fresh out of the refrigerator the day after I made them.

Chocolate Chip Bars

That is why they don't look ooey and gooey. Sorry about that folks! Here's another chocolate chip recipe, but in bar form. I saw this recipe on Chocolate Bytes who got it from a youtube video. The recipe reqires shortening instead of butter, which causes the bars (or cookies) to be very soft. These bars were very delicious and remained so for three or four days (that's how long they lasted), but I wouldn't go far as to say they are the best CCCs I've ever had. Anyway, if you're one of those people who tend to shy away from shortening, try using half shortening and half butter to see how they turn out.
