Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Cookies

Here is another recipe from a blog that I follow. The Picky Palate probably has the best treat recipes I have ever seen! This is definitely only one of many. I even use this recipe minus the cookie dough bites for good ole' plain chocolate chip cookies. Try them either way... They are the best!

Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Cookies

2 sticks softened butter

¾ Cup brown sugar

¾ Cup sugar

2 eggs

1 teaspoon vanilla

2 ¾ Cup flour

1 teaspoon baking soda

¾ teaspoon salt

1 Cup semi sweet chocolate chips

2 6 oz boxes Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Bites

1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. In a stand or electric mixer, cream the butter and sugars until well combined. Beat in eggs and vanilla until well mixed. In a separate bowl sift the flour, baking soda and salt. Slowly add to wet ingredients along with the chocolate chips and cookie dough bites until just combined.

2. With a cookie scoop, scoop onto a parchment or silpat lined baking sheet. Bake for 9-11 minutes or until cooked to your liking. I usually take mine out right at 9 minutes for a softer cookie. Let cool on baking sheet for 3-5 minutes then transfer to a cooling rack. Makes about 36 cookies

Skor Cake

This cake is so good... and so simple! I got the recipe from a ward cookbook that my Aunt Wendy gave me for Christmas. It is jam packed full of tasty recipes, and when Nate's mom said I could make dessert for family dinner today, I knew this was my pick! I did substitute a Heath bar for a Skor bar today; I couldn't find a Skor bar at Target. But that's okay, it was still toffee-ish and good none the less. This picture needs no introductions because for once I did not borrow it from someone elses blog, I took it myself...which is why it is not nearly as good a picture as the others I have posted in the past. Try this cake out, you'll love how easy it is! Enjoy!

Skor Cake

1 Box Devils Food Cake Mix
1 Carton Cool Whip
I Jar Mrs. Richardson's Caramel Butterscotch Sauce
1 Skor Bar, chopped

Bake cake according to package directions. While cake is still warm, poke holes all over cake with a straw, and cover cake with the caramel sauce. Let cake cool completely. "Frost" with Cool Whip, and top with Skor bar. Yum!
