The perfect combination of crunchy and chewy
I don’t know about you, but I love when my cookies are still a little doughy in the middle. I am team dough eater all the way. Give me all the salmonella.
However, my husband likes his well done, and almost burnt, because he likes to dip them in hot chocolate or milk.
Depending on how you like it, determines how you should bake them. If you like them a little bit more on the doughy side, we recommend baking them for 8 minutes.
If you tend to reach for the more crunchy cookies, we recommend baking them for 10-12 minutes. I watch mine very carefully because they can burn quickly if you aren’t timing them, or keeping a close eye on them.
And if you are stuck in between two textures, bake one pan for 8 minutes and another for 10-11. Debate solved.
The perfect holiday drinks to serve with cookies:
Don’t get me wrong, I love cookies and milk, but there are a few holiday drinks, that only come around this time of year, so you have to take advantage of them.
Here are a few of our favorite holiday beverages to drink with our favorite cookies. They are all alcohol free, and kid friendly, so everyone can enjoy the holidays.
Red Velvet Hot Chocolate: Just when red velvet couldn’t get any tastier, we turned it into hot chocolate, and you are going to love it. It is so creamy, and I love dipping cookies or brownies in it.
Instant Pot Apple Cider: You haven’t had apple cider until you try instant pot apple cider. This will blow you away. It tastes like Christmas in a cup.
Cranberry Citrus Party Punch: This is the BEST holiday punch recipe. It is so light and refreshing, and full of delicious cranberry flavor. You need to try this recipe.
Nutella Hot Chocolate: If you are anything like me, you like the rich with the rich. I don’t care what anyone says, there is no such thing as too much chocolate, and this hot cocoa, and the cookies, complement each other, perfectly.
