Listening: One Direction’s “Perfect” — For some reason, this one is stuck in my head!

Meltaway Cookies

I finally had some time to bake this weekend! I decided to give these Meltaway Cookies a whirl for my book club meeting on Sunday. These were so so good and a great return to form for me.

This recipe was simple enough, just mix the liquid and dry ingredients separately, then mix together. You then form the dough around a meltaway chocolate and roll in cinnamon sugar. It might seem like a lot of flavors, but it wasn’t. They were great just out of the oven when the chocolate was gooey inside.

These were a hit and I would definitely make them again. In fact, they seemed like a variation on the Peanut Butter Snickerdoodles I made last year that were so so good as well.
