We Should Cocoa #39 November 2013 – Cookies!

We_Should_Cocoa_V3 This month, I am happy to have the honor of hosting the We Should Cocoa challenge group!  The We Should Cocoa challenge, managed by Choclette of Chocolate Log Blog, is a great excuse to be creative and make a chocolate treat each month.  We can use any sort of chocolate or cocoa substance and use any ingredient that we like, but we must include the special ingredient or theme selected by the host.  Last month’s challenge was hosted by Ness of JibberJabberUK and the special ingredient was Vegetables.

Since fall marks the beginning of what I like to think of as the home baker’s favorite time of year, I have decided to make the theme this month one of my favorite holiday treats to bake and eat – Cookies!   Cookies (a.k.a. Biscuits in some regions) are a sweet treat that I have been making as long as I can remember.  I love cookies in all forms – drops, bars, rolled, molded, decorated or filled.  They can be as fancy as the imagination allows or as simple as need be when time is an issue.   I always bake lots of cookies for holidays as gifts and I like to try out new recipes in addition to my annual specialty cookies, but chocolate is always a favorite ingredient.

I look forward to seeing all the cookie recipes you have to share with me from your family favorites to regional specialties!

The usual rules apply:

  1. Ooh biscuits, how lovely. I have phases of making them and then go for months without. I must be in another phase as I made some chocolate biscuits this morning. I won’t be using them for this challenge though and will now get my thinking cap on for something chocolatey and delicious. Thanks for hosting Rebecca 🙂
