Cookies are among the most versatile and comforting snacks going. These are not as indulgent as cakes and they don’t require you to go to the effort of cutting a slice and getting out plates – they’re ideal finger food that you can enjoy anywhere and dip into as you please.
At the same time though, cookies are also just as comforting and indulgent as cakes and a range of other desserts. They’re thick, they’re rich, and they have an incredibly satisfying bite. After a hard day at work, or when you’re dealing tired and hard-done-by, cookies can be the ideal antidote.
The best part? Cookies are as easy and fun to make as they are to eat. Especially if you happen to have a simple cookie batter or mix. In this post, we’ll take a look at 15 delicious cookie recipes that you can make from any basic cookie batter. Let’s go!
1. Dark Chocolate, Pistachio, and Sea Salt Cookies
For the most part, creating your cookie recipes is going to be a simple matter of taking the ingredients you want, mixing them in liberally, and then beginning your bake. The real skill then comes in making fantastic combinations that will be unique, adventurous… but also of course tasty! The mistake is to try and get too creative, ultimately at the expense of tasty cookies!
When you make these cookies, you’re going to be adding dark chocolate with pistachio and sea salt. This is a combination that works perfectly – the different flavors all compliment one another, and the result is something that is really memorable and very moreish!
To make your cookie batter, you’re going to get a medium bowl and then mix together some flour and salt, along with some butter and sugar. You’ll then add an egg, and then some almond or vanilla extract to add the flavoring. From here, you’ll be adding in your dark chocolate chips, your pistachio, and your sea salt (just a pinch!). Alternatively, you can buy sea salted chocolate.
Either way, this is the basic process you will use time and again for all these recipes.
