Softbatch Cream Cheese Chocolate Chip Cookies

Replacing some of the butter from a favorite chocolate chip cookie recipe with cream cheese created cookies that are super soft without being cakey, edges that are slightly chewy, and interior that is thick, soft, tender, and moist. Plus there’s an abundance of chocolate in every bite.

The dough can be made in advance, refrigerated, and baked as desired, up to 5 days later.

Brown Butter Salted Caramel Snickerdoodles

These cookies bake perfectly. They were perfectly chewy and the brown butter gave them an amazing flavor. Just when you think they can’t get any better you take your first bite and a gooey caramel surprise is in the inside of the cookie. You’ll also love how they are lightly salted on the top to give the sweet a little balance of salty.

Grandma’s Cranberry Cookies

If you’re looking for a simple, back to basics cookie recipe for the holidays, or really any time of the year, try grandma’s recipe.

We love these cookies because they’re not super decadent or overly sweet, and the sugar coating on the outside gives them a yummy little bit of crunch while keeping the inside really soft. They’re a perfect accompaniment to coffee or tea.

To add a little holiday flair to these cookies, swap out raisins for Craisins (any sweetened, dried cranberry will do). The secret to these cookies is simmering the dried cranberries in water so that they become moist and plump before adding them to the cookie batter. And a surprise ingredient is a little Crisco. If you really want soft cookes, then Crisco is the way to go.
