There is something very satisfying about having a batch of home made cookies in your cookie jar! I must admit, I am almost always on "diet" so I try and give my baked goods away as soon as possible so I don't scoff them all - but I really like the idea of having a "stock"* of baked goods in my grocery cupboard :) These are very similar to the white & pink chocolate chip cookies I made recently - the basic recipe is my favourite chocolate chip base recipe, its got the perfect balance of cruchiness and chewiness (if that even makes sense!)
* I ended up giving these away to save myself getting a new pair of bigger jeans :)
I used my stand mixer to mix the basic ingredients together (whatever is easiest usually works best for me!) and then I mixed in the white choc chips (you can use any colour you like) and some very cute and colourful mini marshmallows I found, by hand.
When the marshmallows and chocolate chips were evenly mixed in the cookie dough, I prepared my baking sheet (which I should have done in the beginning!) and used a cookie scoop to make evenly (clearly these were very even cookies ;) ) sized balls of cookie dough to drop onto the baking sheet.
Then the tray got popped into a pre heated oven, and baked until golden brown (about 9 min). After taking them out if the oven, I left them to harden up a bit before I took them off the baking tray to cool.
And that's it! Easy peasy! I guess that you could add whatever you like and make these your own using the simple cookie dough, having said that: WHAT WOULD YOU TRY/ADD?!
