Every year I try at least one new recipe. This year I tried a couple new recipes – but I also tried a new way of baking.
As part of the Allrecipes.com Allstars brand ambassador program that I belong to, Reynolds recently sent me some parchment paper to use in my cookie baking.
I should tell you that I have never understood the appeal of liners for cookie sheets – parchment paper or silicon mats – but then I have also never had any problems with cookies sticking to my baking sheets.
To try out the parchment paper, Reynolds gave us a choice of several recipes. I am partial to chocolate cookies so the recipes I chose reflect that taste.
These cookies are fast and easy – so if you are looking for some last minute selections to leave out for the big guy or to just have some treats to serve up for guests who pop by in the next several days these are both great choices.
I love the combination of mint and chocolate (especially at the holidays) so these Chocolate Mint Crinkle Cookies were an obvious choice for me.
And they are just like magic when they flatten up in the oven to create that crinkled look.
But they are a wonderful choice for displaying on a platter at the holidays because they are so beautiful.
So when I saw these Chocolate Peanut Butter Blossom Cookies I just knew I had to make them.
I could not have been more wrong! They are just perfect! And the dark chocolate kiss (instead of the milk chocolate) is a welcome change since, personally, I much prefer the taste of dark to milk.
These are definitely a keeper!
The cookies baked up perfectly and kept the trays so clean. And the sheets of parchment just slid right off the baking pan.
