I made them this weekend, and they were so darn good.. I couldn't wait to share them with all my lovely viewers..
With Christmas right around the corner, and this wonderful holiday season, its so fun to bake something new once awhile.. I used a Betty Crockers recipe but added a few twists of my own, like the salt and the Snickers instead of chocolate chips. My kids were going crazy after them, they were so hyper and so happy, asking what Santa was going to do with the cookies.. They started arguing about who's going to leave a card with the cookies for Santa.. It was totally hilarious, made me laugh so much, and think about my childhood, when we were younger, looking so forward to all the gifts, and presents surrounded under the Christmas tree..
Well now its even going to be better, warmer, and sweeter with my 3 little munchkins.. Wishing all of you a Warm, loving and Blessed Christmas This Holiday Season..
Prep Time 15 minutes
Bake Time: No Longer than 10-12 minutes
Chill From 1 hour up to 1 day
Makes about 22 Thick Chewy cookies
1 cup of butter (unsalted) If you use salted butter then cut of half of the measurement for salt)
3/4 cup of Brown Sugar
1/4 cup of sugar
2 teaspoons of vanilla extract
2 cups of all purpose white flour (maida)
2 teaspoons of cornstarch (corn flour)
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup of snickers candy cut into pieces
1/2 cup of almonds (optional)
Now there are some important Facts about this recipe in order to achieve the perfect chewy cookies....
1.Make sure all your ingredients are at room temperature.
2. The baking time for these cookies are No longer then 12 minutes. Normally the recipe calls for 10 minutes, but not everyone has the same oven.. so no more than 12 minutes.. You don't want them to over cook ( I don't even move from the kitchen when I'm baking these baby's).
3. The cookies might feel soft, or look undone when taking them out of the oven after 10-12 minutes but don't panic they will still cook on the baking sheet. "Don't Touch the cookies For at least 10 minutes when their out of the oven LET THEM COOL
In a large mixing bowl add your butter sugar, and brown sugar. Mix well for about 1-2 minutes incorporating all the lumps of the brown sugar.
Add your egg, and Vanilla Mix again until your mixture is nice and smooth.
In a separate mixing bowl, add your flour, salt, baking soda, and cornstarch. Mix well using your hands or a whisk.
Add the wet mixture to the flour, and mix together adding in the candy, and the nuts if desired.
Once you have all the flour in the bowl, you can use your hands to mix it around because it can get kind of hard using a hand mixer.
The dough should be dry and crumbly. Let the dough chill for about 1 hour.
Preheat your oven to 325 and grease or line your baking sheets, or trays
Now using the palms of your hands, putting the dough together make about 2 inch balls and place on the cookie sheets about 2 inches apart. Place in your oven on the middle rack, and bake for no more than 10-12 minutes, depending on your oven. (Use a timer so you don't over cook the sweet little bundles of joy)
Let the cookies cool on the tray for upto 10 minutes. Using the help of a knife or spatula gently move the cookies of the cookie tray ( the cookies are usually very extra soft for upto 10-15 minutes)
Enjoy with your loved ones, on CHRISTMAS EVE, and Don't forget to leave some for SANTA:)
