My daughter received an Easter basket from each set of grandparents, in addition to the one the Easter bunny brought. Today I decided to transform the remaining chocolate into cookies, by using the Vanilla Rich Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe on the McCormick website. I used the same quantity of chocolate as required in the recipe, but about a 3rd of it was cookies & creme white chocolate. I also added 1/2 tsp of cinnamon & 1/4 tsp. of ginger, since I like both flavors with chocolate.
I only had a few nibbles of cookie, since I am dropping a few pounds in preparation for summer, but they were delicious. The extra vanilla used in this McCormick recipe was a nice touch, and seemed to sweeten them up a bit. The recipe makes a lot of cookie dough, and it is just my daughter and I here, so I wrapped up several logs of the dough in plastic wrap and popped them in the freezer. Now, I can easily whip up a batch of these yummy homemade cookies, with minimal clean-up whenever I like.
There are a wide array of great recipes on the McCormick website, why not stop over and try one out.
I participated in a campaign on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for McCormick. I received product samples and a promotional item to thank me for participating.
