The holiday season is here, whether we want to admit it or not! Two of my favorite things about the holidays are cookies and pie. And at our house one of my favorite holiday activities is our annual Cookie Baking Day with my girls and friends. Today I’ve got a recipe I’ll be using at our annual cookie baking day and one that combines my two favorite things, pie and cookies. Apple Pie Cookies are the best of both worlds.
To help simplify the process I love having one easy cookie recipe that I can dress up or down and today I’m sharing Country Crock® Make It YoursTM Cookie Recipe which makes the perfect base cookie dough. All you have to do is add in 1-2 cups of your favorite mix-ins. The possibilities are really endless.
For today’s cookie I added in white chocolate chips, toffee bits, dried apples and cinnamon.
After mixing up the cookie dough, just add in the mix ins of your choice. I loved the flavor and the texture that the dried apple pieces gave the cookie.
Along with Country Crock®, I believe in having fun in the kitchen and putting together fun, new creative combinations the whole family will love is fun!! Put together your own favorite combination, share it on Social Media and be sure to share it with the hashtag #MakeItYours.
You can find lots of inspiration for your mix in combination by visiting Country Crock®. I’ve got lots of mix in combination ideas on my list that I can’t wait to try. It would be a fun family night activity too. Mix up a batch of the Make It YoursTM Cookie Recipe and then let each family member add in their favorite mix ins into part of the dough. Have a cookie bake off and see which combo you like the best!
Country Crock® spreads gives you a fresh taste made from ingredients you can pronounce. I like that!
The possibilites are endless with the Make It YoursTM Cookie Dough Recipe so I’m going to tag my friend Chrissy over at The Taylor House to see what fun combination she comes up with! Be sure and pay Chrissy and check out her combination.
