Thursday is our monthly "fill the cookie jar" post and I created two recipes. I could not decide WHICH one I wanted to link up. I finally decided on the...well you'll see Thursday. So today I'm sharing these, my July 4th cookies, a small recipe as it only makes 1 dozen. Why you ask, because I don't need more than that laying around. My husband will argue that, but he's not the one with another 70 lbs to loose. I am.
So with it being the first of July and the fourth just a few days away, what better thing to create than...
July 4th cookies; Red, white and blue
Dried cherries - red
white chocolate chips - white
Dried blueberries - blue
and a few candied walnuts for good measure, because I like "crunch" in my cookies.
My husband is not a fan of white chocolate but these are not packed with chips, I only used a small amount of each ingredient so that each one can be found, tasted and one does not overwhelm the others.
July 4th Cookies
1/2 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1 1/4 cup all purpose flour
In a stand mixer cream the brown sugar and butter. Slowly add your egg and then dry ingredients. Once this is mixed well, shut it off and stir in by hand 1/4 cup each of:
white chocolate chips
Stir well and place a large tablespoon of mix on a baking sheet or SilPad.
Bake for 9-12 minutes in a 350 degree oven.
This is a small recipe, makes 1 dozen.
