Thursday Treasure - Cookie Love

This is one of those days where I'm not posting about what I had originally planned to talk about. I know I'm not the only one who falls into this mind-changing category, so don't give me that look. ;-)

Today's treasure popped up last night as I was preparing to fulfill a cookie request. My instructions were to make just any kind of cookie. Say what?? I mean, I received absolutely NO, el zippo, nada. So in traditional TSE fashion, I stood looking into the pantry waiting for something to fall into my hands to help me make a decision. Sadly, that didn't happen--I actually had to REACH into the pantry and this is what I pulled out.

The red chips are cherry flavored. I discovered these little red goodies in January while stalking the shelves at Super Target and thought I'd add them to pancakes for Briana, my four year old great niece or possibly use them for Valentines. A cookie never occurred to me, since I'm more of a Plain Jane cookie type. Well, I've officially changed my mind. Anywho, I thought the cherry chips would go well with white chocolate and pecans, so that's where I went with it. I must say, I am quite pleased with the outcome. Just the right balance of flavors. Since I'm not enamored with chocolate, I'm not a fan of the old school chocolate chip cookie and I wasn't sure if I'd actually like this one. Give me a simple shortbread, vanilla or lemon cookie and I'm a happy girl...until last night. This cookie is now on my Cookie-With-Stuff-In-It list. I'd like to introduce you to my friend. Her name is Cherry-White Chocolate Chip Pecan Cookie.

The recipe is super easy and you can find it here. If you've ever followed the Nestle Toll House Cookie recipe, it'll look extremely familiar, because it's the same thing. I simply used 1 cup each of the chips.

Now that I have a multi-faceted cookie to add to my list of favorites, I've decided to nominate it for the Thursday Treasure Award.

While I'm munching, I'd love to hear about your favorite cookie.

  1. This cookie looks so good! I like many different cookies so it will be hard to decide. I will say a good old homemade chocolate chip never fails!

  2. Thanks Jem! I'm finally joining the ranks of non-plain cookie lovers. Who knows what my next cookie favorite will be?
