Thanksgiving Leftovers Cookies

Thanksgiving Leftovers Cookies | Faith, Hope, Love, and Luck Survive Despite A Whiskered Accomplice

All right, so I know Thanksgiving hasn’t taken place yet this year, but I’m surrounded by Christmas in my house, and I need to make some room in my pantry for upcoming projects. I tend to overbuy when it comes to holiday candies, especially seasonal M&M’s, as I’ve mentioned to y’all before. What better way to get rid of everything than to dump it all into one cookie? These cookies tend to be a little hard to get to stick together because they are overflowing with so many goodies, but it means they taste absolutely freaking amazing, and now that I have some room in my pantry I can start focusing on Christmas goodies. Even Brenna’s ready for Christmas this year; she managed to break two ornaments while I was baking this batch of cookies. I’m always amazed just how many tiny little pieces a glass Christmas ball can break into, and how a few of those pieces will always manage to elude Mr. Dyson, eventually finding a home in the bottom of my foot.

Suggestions: 

  • Cooking time may vary depending on your oven’s temperature accuracy.
  • This recipe makes approximately 4 1/2 dozen cookies.
  • Lock your animals safely away when baking to avoid annoying distractions.

Improvements:

  • Use whatever leftover seasonal candy or nuts you have available. Toffee bits, pecans, chocolate chips, caramel bits, or cinnamon baking chips; pretty much anything goes. Just make sure that your ingredients will taste good when mixed all together.
  • Serve with a huge glass of milk.
