October 1st is National Homemade Cookie Day. What? You didn't know & you missed it? Well...if you're like me, you don't need a holiday to celebrate cookies!
Kelli at Random Thoughts of a SUPERMOM brought this holiday to my attention.
Head over there and check out her cookies - YUMMY!
I'm a big fan of the pull apart and bake cookies
(they are less messy & darn near idiot proof)....
but today I decided to get out the mixer and make 'real' cookies.
My favorite cookies are chocolate chip..we only had white chocolate chips (not a big fan). Next choice was peanut butter (the kids nixed those). We finally all agreed on M&M cookies. I used the chocolate chip cookie recipe from Toll House (pronounced 'Toullll Howsa' - if you watched FRIENDS, you will get the joke).
Instead of chocolate chips..we added M&M's.
* we fancied them up by using the Fall themed M&M's :)
My homemade cookies never look pretty...
Where are all the M&M's?? Oh wait - there they are...at the bottom!
They are definitely homemade. UGH!
None are the same size, some are crispy, some are chewy.
tastes looks better than a stack of fresh baked cookies!!
Want to see how everyone celebrated - head on over to the cookie link party.
Maybe you'll find a new favorite recipe!!
