Soft chocolate chips cookies with salted pretzels baked on top of a crunchy honey graham cracker. A cookie has never looked so good.
We all have cherished food memories:
- helping out our grandparent/parents in the kitchen
- the first time we baked cookies (or in my case, slightly burnt and salty oatmeal raisin cookies)
- making your first bowl of instant ramen
- spending an hour stringing green beans for the Thanksgiving feast
One recent memory that still lingers on my palette are the Mackels’more cookies I had 3 months ago in Seattle. It’s difficult to forget eating a buttery chocolate chip s’mores cookie baked onto a graham cracker served with Earl Grey ice cream on a balmy autumn evening. All this alongside my friend’s adorable dog. She’s a bit of a showstopper. When she was still a young pup, she had everyone eating off
the palm of her hands her paws with her cuteness. I can talk about this dog forever.
Inspired by those scrumptious Mackels’more cookies from Hello Robin, I baked a batch of chocolate chip cookies with pretzels on top of graham crackers. Then, I gave them away!
This is my first year being part of the Great Food Blogger Cookie Swap, and I wanted to share a type of cookie that evoked scrumptious food memories. I ogle over other bloggers’ delicious recipes all the time, but I’m always sad that I never get to taste any of it. These blogger food swaps are definitely made for people with hungry stomachs like mine. Lucky me, I got these delightful Deep Dish Peppermint Hot Cocoa Cookies (plus silver paper straws that I’ll use for my photos!!) from Our Full Table, Graham Cracker Snickerdoodles from Big Flavors from a Tiny Kitchen, and Gingersnaps with Eggnog Glaze from Cheap Recipe Blog. MAJOR YUM!
But aside from the delicious food, the Great Food Blogger Cookie Swap also partnered with Cookies for Kids’ Cancer, a non-profit that raises money for the research and development of treatments for pediatric cancer. Good cookies, good cause, good feelings all around.
Wish I still had more of these cookies around to share with you all!
Guess how I enjoyed my cookie:
