I think cookies are my favorite of all the sweet treats. I mean, let me clear, I love them all. But it's hard to top a perfectly chewy, buttery cookie with chocolate chips and other delights inside (I like my cookies with a lot of stuff in them). For a long time I really struggled with from scratch cookies, they always came out too cakey. But now I've found a fool-proof recipe and my life is so much better. I always start with the same base dough, but I keep changing the stuff I put inside and it seems to not matter. Because they always turn out awesome. This past weekend I made dark chocolate and oatmeal cookies for the Super Bowl, and they were a hit. Here's two of those guys. I would highly recommend adding this cookie recipe to your arsenal. I basically use this recipe from Martha Stewart. -The only change I make is that I only use three cups of flour, not three and half cups like the recipe calls for. -I also just add 3 cups total of whatever combination of delicious thingys I feel like in that particular batch of cookies. Be it, chocolate, nuts, coconut, oatmeal, toffee, butterscotch, raisins, you get the idea.
