Sometimes you need a freshly baked cookie. I mean really need one. The trouble is, you don’t always have the time required to make one. There’s butter that needs to be brought to room temperature and dough that needs to be chilled before baking. I love to bake, but there are times when I need a recipe that doesn’t require pre-planning or the better part of my day in order to make it on to our dinner table.
This is one of those recipes. These cookies taste delicious, look fantastic, and go from raw ingredients to warm cookies fresh from the oven in less than 30 minutes. They never last long here at 1840 Farm. They seem to disappear almost as quickly as they were prepared.
You can read the I hope that you will enjoy baking a few of our favorite cookie recipes this holiday season and that you will share a few of your own. A flurry of cookies will be baked this week at 1840 Farm. We’ll have cookies for bedtime snack on Christmas Eve and there will have to be a few cookies left over for Santa. I’ll need as many great cookie recipes as I can get my hands on in order to keep fresh cookies in our farmhouse kitchen through next week. Sometimes, you just need a cookie and a great cookie recipe.

- 57I wish that I could take the credit for this recipe. If you believed that I had dreamt this cookie batter up in our farmhouse kitchen, I might be elevated to genius status in the opinion of my readers. Alas, I did not create this recipe. However, I did have the good sense to rip…
- 55We have been baking a lot of cookies lately. No one here at 1840 Farm seems to mind.
