Red Velvet White Chocolate Chip Cookies

I found this Red Velvet White Chocolate Chip recipe on Pinterest. You can find basically anything on Pinterest..especially recipes, if you just don’t know what to make for that special occasion.

Many of the ingredients that this recipe calls for can be found at home (for me, at least). But if not, they can be found at the local grocery store.

I mixed all the wet ingredients together.

Then, incorporated the dry into the wet.  (I cut back on the sugar, as I find the recipes tend to be really sweet. So I used a total of 1 and 1/2 cups of sugar.) And added the chocolate chips.

The recipe makes 24 cookies, but I used a standard ice cream scoop for even sized-cookies. And that made 10 large-even cookies.

Because the cookies were bigger, I baked them for 14 minutes.

Why I recommend this recipe?
1. The ingredient are plain and simple
2. It doesn’t take long to prepare and bake
3. These cookies can be made and brought to a party/ event on the same day, if you’re having trouble finding something to bring

Salted Caramel Pecan Chocolate Cookies

Two weeks ago, I was invited to an Easter Dinner. Knowing me and my excuse to try something new, I decided to take a risk and bake something way out of my comfort zone. (And, I already had bought all the inrewidents weeks ago because I had the urge to make this after having Tim Horton‘s version of this cookie, but without the chocolate.

Whipping the butter and sugar first. Always (almost) a first when baking cookies.

It looks like a chocolate chip cooke dough. And that’s exactly what is it at this stage.

After having an hour to chill in the fridge, add the pecans and bits of caramel. Scoop wit a spoon or use your hands to roll them into a ball. I would pat the dough flat, at this stage, because if the cookie is in a round ball shape, the inside might not be fully cooked. And no, they do not flatten once baking. And also, make sure the caramel is not peaking out from the sides.

If the caramel pieces ARE on the sides, they’ll turn out like this (picture above, left side). Doesn’t look too appealing.

ENJOY!
