These cookies are one of my favorites: they’re classic, and the recipe is my grandmother’s (the recipe card is so loved, I had to squint to interpret it). Chocolate Pixie cookies are just the right combination between a cookie and a brownie. And the powdered sugar on top makes them even more irresistible, and a little bit messy!
1. Preheat oven to 300 F.
2. In a medium sized bowl, sift together flour, baking powder, and salt. Set aside.
3. Put the butter and unsweetened chocolate into a microwave safe bowl and melt it in the microwave (heat it for 30 seconds at a time, stirring in between each additional heating). Once it’s melted, stir again to combine, then set aside to cool until lukewarm.
4. In a large bowl, combine sugar and eggs and use a mixer to beat it for one minute. Add chocolate/butter mixture, and mix to combine. Then gradually incorporate the flour mixture.
5. Cover the bowl of cookie dough with plastic wrap and chill in the refrigerator for 15 minutes.
6. After dough is chilled, pour powdered sugar into a small bowl. Using a tablespoon, scoop and shape cookie dough into balls and roll in powdered sugar. Place the dough balls onto an ungreased baking sheet and bake for 18-20 minutes.
***I must add: this particular recipe can also be altered depending on your taste preferences! My grandma likes to make them with 1/2 cup of chopped walnuts stirred into the dough. Around the holidays, adding 1-2 teaspoons of peppermint extract can add a wonderful flavor as well!
Made with quinoa, whole grains and oats, these healthy cookies are perfect to grab on-the-go! Almonds, cranberries, chocolate chips and coconut add a subtle sweetness. After one bite, your taste buds will be partying.
One of my favorite candy bars is the Heath chocolate covered toffee bar. Heath makes a toffee chip for baking. They are very small and mix well for a well distributed flavor. I took one of my old oatmeal cookie bar recipes and tweaked it to include these chips and also some chocolate chips. They are tasty and crispy and even more so after fully cooling overnight. That is, if they last overnight!
Buttery cookies loaded with chunks of white chocolate and a truckload of roasted macadamia nuts.
Nancy is the Coupon Clipping Cook, which means she not only has an astounding number of recipes to share with us (her TK recipe box is busting at the seams!) but she's also got loads of money-saving tips in her blog (she worked at a grocery store for a number of years, so she knows her stuff). She has some pretty amazing creations, like Roasted Garlic Potato Soup and Nutty Coconut Chicken. Go check them out!
