First Monday Favorites – November 2017

Combine chopped store-bought golden sandwich cookies with homemade cookie dough to create the perfect chocolate chip cookie.

Many of y’all probably noticed that I didn’t post a whole lotta recipes last month, mainly due to The Nightmare Before Christmas. Don’t fret, I promise that I’ll be cooking and baking much more in the next month or so. As a little hint, I’ll give you a heads up that you may get really sick of seeing cookie recipes, which makes it all the more interesting that my favorite recipe of last month was for these Golden Sandwich Cookie Chocolate Chip Cookies from #Choctoberfest. Sure, it may seem odd to make a homemade cookie out of a store-bought cookie but I promise you that it’s a good thing, a really good thing. Don’t believe me? Try out this recipe for yourself and tell me what you think. And, if cookies made with cookies aren’t your thing, perhaps you could give this Creamsicle Bundt Cake with Orange Cocoa Glaze or these Fluffy Peanut Butter Nougat Chocolate Brownies a try. They’d be the perfect dessert treat after a steaming hot bowl of Virginia Ham & Bean Chowder or Vegan & Gluten-Free Sweet Potato Crockpot Soup.
