EVERYTHING DELICIOUS [Chocolate Chip, Reese's Pieces, Caramel Bits] COOKIES5:00 AM
It's beginning to finally feel like fall-ish around here in the Phoenix area.
That means that the highs are starting to be in the lower 90s to 80s instead of near the 100s, and our lows in the mornings are in the 60s.
Yep. That's fall here.
So while it's not sweater weather whatsoever, it is a time to start baking the fall goodies. Because if not now, we'd have to wait until about December when it actually feels like FALL here.
These cookies were a cure to feeling SAD about the weather. And I know they'd go perfectly with some apple cider, coffee, or tea-- or beverage of your choice. They basically taste good with everything.
- 1/2 C butter, softened (one stick)
- 1/2 C sugar
- 1/2 C brown sugar
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 1 egg
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/2 tsp baking soda
- 1/2 baking powder
- 1 & 1/3 C flour
- 1/3 C chocolate chips (I used semi-sweet)
- 1/3 C baking Reese's Pieces
- 1/3 C caramel bits
Note: If your dough feels a bit dry, add a splash of oil: canola, olive, coconut (melted) all work! This will help the cookies not be too cake!
- Preheat your oven to 350 and prep a baking sheet with parchment paper or cooking spray. If you have two baking sheets, prep them both. This makes between 18-24 cookies.
- Blend together your butter and sugars. Add your vanilla and egg to the mix.
- Work in your dry ingredients (not the sweets just yet) until everything is well combined and there are no flour streaks or anything like that!
- Fold in your goodies: chocolate chips, reese's pieces, and caramel bits.
Note: You can just do chocolate chips to make the perfect chocolate chip cookies, or basically add anything that you would like! This is a good base cookie recipe, so I've tested & learned.
- Use a medium cookie scoop (about 2 TBSP of dough per cookie). Bake for 9-12 minutes, depending on your oven. Let cool on baking sheet for 2 minutes until the cookies have caved in. Then remove to cooling rack.
Ready? OK. Now devour them.
