Okay everyone, there is officially five more days until Christmas and right about now you are checking things off your “To Do list” as fast as possible. For those of you with children we know that one of those things on that list is ‘Cookies for Santa.’ We also know that you probably hear “don’t forget the cookies for Santa” 20 times a day because we all know Santa has a sweet tooth and probably needs a snack or two for his long night of work. So, we are here to help! Check out this tasty chocolate chip cookie recipe that will surely have Santa licking the crumbs right off the plate!
1 cup of softened butter
1 cup of white sugar
1 cup of brown sugar (packed)
3 cups of all-purpose flour
2 tsp of vanilla extract
1 tsp. of baking soda
2 tsp. of hot water
2 cups of semi-sweet chocolate chips
½ tsp. of salt
1 cup of chopped walnuts (optional)
Now that all the ingredients are ready, let’s get this party started! Like literally, turn some Christmas music on, round up all of Santa’s little helpers, and let’s get ready for some fun!
First, preheat the oven to 350˚F.
Next, mix together the softened butter, the white sugar, and the brown sugar until it is completely smooth.
Once that is done, beat the eggs one at a time and stir in the vanilla extract.
Then, dissolve the baking soda into the two teaspoons of hot water and add that to the cookie batter along with the salt.
When that is mixed, slowly stir in the flour, chocolate chips, and walnuts (if you choose to add them). Once the mixture is complete take large spoonful’s and place them on your pan. For best results we recommend you use the Cooks Innovations Non-Stick Liner Roll. The liner roll replaces the need to use oil or butter and since it is 100% non-stick there is no need to worry about burning or sticking the pan.
Finally, place in the oven and bake for approximately 10 minutes or until the edges are nice and golden and that’s it!
Now comes the hard part; actually trying to save the cookies for Santa!
