A Christmas Cookie Classic

Good morning, my little cookie crumbs!

Wow, I’m seriously impressed with how many of you would consider whipping up anΒ E.L.F FrittataΒ for your next breakfast! If you want some more ideas (and honorary membership to the Weird Foodie Club), be sure to check out the other #strangebutgood link ups over on Laura’s blog!

Now let’s talk cookies!

I don’t know about you guys, but there is just something about the combo of warm chocolate chip cookies you can get at in a Christmas cookie gift box and a cold glass of milk around the holidays…

I may or may not have dunked each bite into my glass of milk…and licked my plate clean.

Sorry Santa, you’ll have to get your own! πŸ˜‰

  1. Oh MY. I want them NOW. The look SO good! I love chewy cookies and I love them even more topped with an almond butter and honey-mix….sorry, I have to go, I need that now. Happy Sunday!!!

  2. Yea, those look amazing! You cannot go wrong with a chocolate chip cookie (or in this case, chocolate chip cookie pancake). While I never turn down a cookie, I think I prefer chewy chocolate chip cookies best!


    I’m off to the kitchen. Now. Not kidding.

    I just had to pin this, first πŸ™‚ Now off to go see if I can get mine to look half as good! I’m using chocolate protein powder, let’s see how that turns out…

    By the way, you won my Pretzookies in a Gift Box giveaway! I was like ‘wait, I think I know that name…’ YAY!!!

  4. These sound amazing! A great excuse to eat cookies for breakfast!

  5. Ah, a classic! No one will ever be able to touch your pancake queen title miss heather. You are the reigning champion!

    How do you get your pancakes to look so pretty? Mine are always tasty, but a mess. Do you do multiple ones per pan or just one?

    Also, chewy chocolate chip cookies for sure.

      I never had much luck cooking them all in one pan…before I got my electric griddle, I used to use a separate skillet for each cake just to give myself plenty of room to maneuver around the cakes without bumping into the others. The last thing you want is to flip your pancake over onto another one…not that I would know or anything…just figuring! πŸ˜‰

  8. Mmm I wish this post had been up earlier this morning so that I could have made these for breakfast! Chocolate chip cookies are my all time favourite cookie – especially when they’re chewy and just slightly crunchy.

  9. Mmmmm… I love fancy flavors, but at the end of the day the classic chocolate chip is my favorite. Same with cookies. I like them just a little underdone in the center.

    Pretty ‘cakes. πŸ™‚

  11. Delicious!!! I hope you mean serves 1! πŸ™‚

  12. YUM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Love cookies & this is good too! πŸ™‚

  13. wow I have to make these on christmas for my family πŸ™‚

  14. YUM! I love Christmas cookies. I plan to do some baking this week but since one of our neighbors dropped some cookies off this afternoon, I was able to enjoy cookies a bit early. πŸ™‚

  17. I like chocolate chip cookies to be chewy…chewier the better.

    Actually, let’s go ahead and say GOOOOOEY.

    I also prefer them not to be buttery, but milder, made with shortening or oil. Just in case you were wondering. πŸ™‚

    • kissmybroccoli says:

      Oh yeah, my favorite is when they’re actually almost raw in the center…served straight from the oven…with a bowl of ice cream…and a side of Lactaid! πŸ˜‰

  18. I want some ooey gooey chocolate chips right now. I haven’t had an appetite all weekend, but these sound amazing right now!
