Doubletree Cookies with Walnuts & Chocolate Chips
The holiday season is full of surprises but move over Santa—it sure needs a lot of mom-magic to make it happen! I love creating seasonal goodies yet it takes a discriminating palate and a lot of effort to make everything yummy, merry and bright. How do you fuel your efforts? Every year I add to my arsenal of holiday recipes.
The problem isn’t finding something worthwhile; it’s more that there are so many to choose from! These Doubletree Cookies are a favourite. They have just the right amount of chewy texture but it’s the melding of flavours that is so seductive.
Ingredients you can trust make a huge difference in kitchen creations. Fleischmann’s has been inspiring confidence for over 100 years—making them the perfect partner for holiday baking.
I especially like that Fleischmann’s Baking Powder is aluminum and gluten free.
Wouldn’t that add some merry to the holiday?
Meanwhile… do some quality control: Snacking on warm, freshly baked cookies is encouraged. It might be what keeps the mom-magic happening.
