Comfort Cookies

Pin It


You know how some food is just so comforting? These cookies have such a comforting quality to them. Maybe it's the hint of cinnamon that wafts through the air as they bake in the oven. Maybe it's the happy surprise of honey roasted peanuts - a favorite of mine. Maybe it's the familiar chocolate chips that melt in your mouth. 

Whatever it is, these cookies will fill you with warm fuzzies. Take a bite and you will feel like you're being hugged. Yep a cookie hug. It's a real thing. Go put on some comfy clothes and start baking...and eating :)

Comfort cookies - you ain't lying! All of my favorite add-ins are in these cookies. I love the combination. And adding cocoa powder for that extra chocolate kick really takes these to the next level. You are a cookie queen my dear. :)
