Sorry, Tuesdays with Dorie fans. I just couldn't force myself to make the Butterscotch Pudding this week. It just sounded -- well -- gross. But I am anxious to see your recipes and what everyone in the group thought of it!
However, I saw this recipe at Pioneer Woman Cooks last week and knew I had to try it! Her pictures and her cookies look much better than mine, but the taste, the taste is wonderful!!
Have you not met Pioneer Woman, Ree Drummond? Do you like to eat? Do you like to cook? Well, then Pioneer Woman Cooks should be a daily stop for you. She is amazing. And even gives mixers and other cookware away to her readers! :)
I mixed all of the ingredients in my trusty KitchenAid. Yes, it is possible to truly love a kitchen appliance. :)
I was a good girl and let the dough chill for the requisite two hours. But I hate chilling dough. I have no patience. Finally, it was ready to roll into balls.
While I flattened the cookies and popped them in the oven, Mike was busy terrorizing the peppermints.
The finish is a dip in melted almond bark and then a quick swirl in crushed peppermint candies.
And the results -- the results are to-die-for.
If you haven't decided what cookies to leave for Santa yet, I definitely recommend this recipe. Everyone who has tried one has said these are a winner. Amazing cookies! Maybe even the best recipe I've tried all year...
