Everyone loves Chocolate Chip Cookies. It’s the world’s most popular cookie! Last week I shared the recipe for The Neiman Marcus Chocolate Chip Cookie. It is one of my favorites! But sometimes I get a craving for more chocolate and that’s when the Triple Chocolate Chip Cookies come in handy. They are simply delicious!

I’m sure you’ve seen them at Starbuck’s and other retail bakeries. I think there are even some packaged ones by Pepperidge Farms. But nothing comes close to my Triple Chocolate Chip Cookies. They’re definitely chocolaty but the white chocolate morsels I add give it that extra yum! They like crunchy brownies with a kick of delicious white chocolate. They go great with a cold glass of milk!
Another tip for making bakery quality cookies is to have the proper tools. In this case to make really good looking (and tasting) cookies you’ll need a measuring cups and spoons, mixing bowls, an electric mixer (a standing mixer is easier but costlier so a hand mixer works too), a 1 Oz. Scoop (they make the cookies all the same size) and a Silicone Baking Mat (or you can use parchment paper, either one works well, but the mat ends up cheaper in the long run and is definitely more eco-friendly). I know it seems frivolous to buy these things specially if you don’t bake often. I remember back in the day when we really didn’t have the extra money to spend on them (they were much more expensive then) I used to make do with whatever I had. But these days with online shops and big box stores baking equipment has become much more affordable!
But you don’t have to rush out and buy mats, scoops, and whatever. Use what you have or borrow from a baking friend or your mom! Just make sure you use the best ingredients that you can find, that’s the most important thing!
Snowball Cookies are also called Mexican Wedding Cookies and Russian Tea Cakes. What I love the most of these cookies is the texture and the fluffiness, not too sweet powdered sugar coating. My mother baked snowballs during Christmas, New Year and other special occasions.
Snowballs comfort me whenever I’m sad, my mom gave me those when I’m upset and crying. It makes me feel better and happy.
This is my version of Snowball Cookies also called Mexican Wedding Cookies and also called Russian Tea Cakes. Enjoy!!!
2 cups butter “2 sticks”, soft. I used salted
4 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup powdered sugar
+ 2 cups powdered sugar (for coating)
2 tsp. vanilla extract
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
Mix butter & powdered sugar together using a large mixing bowl and add in vanilla extract.
Add the flour & mix until soft dough ball formed.
Roll the dough into 1″ balls & place on ungreased cookie sheet (I used a nonstick baking mat).
Bake for about 9 minutes or until cookies are set but not brown.
Remove from oven, let cool for a few minutes then roll in a bowl of powdered sugar.
Place on cooling rack to cool and roll in powdered sugar again.
When my daughter and I had 24 hours to organize and set up a cookie buffet we racked our brains on what cookies to serve. We didn’t have time to bake several different types of cookies and had to settle for cookies we could run to Walmart and buy.
Luckily Oreos now come in a variety of flavors, we grabbed a package of every flavor they had at the neighborhood store and decided to make our own “homemade” cookies to toss into the mix.
We made these sandwich cookies using store bought chocolate chip cookies and a can of ready made frosting. It took my daughter all of 10 minutes to assemble them and they were a big hit.
It makes a great snack or addition to any party. Best of all it has only 2 ingredients and is super easy to make. We used chewy Chip Ahoy cookies and vanilla frosting. You can use any kind of cookie and any flavor frosting. Oatmeal or ginger snaps would make good alternatives.
We cut the corner off a large ziplock bag to pipe the frosting on the cookies.
1 package of chewy chocolate chip cookies
1 can ready to spread vanilla frosting
1. Pipe about a tablespoon or more of frosting on to half the cookies in the package.
2. Cover the frosting with the rest of the cookies. Gently push down on the top to spread the frosting to the edge to make it look like a sandwich.
3. Arrange the cookie sandwiches on a pretty plate or tray.
I usually like to line the tray with a doily, but we couldn’t find doilies at the local Walmart or Party City, so we had to make do without.
Super Easy Sandwich Cookies
Great cookie for a cookie buffet or cookie exchange. Fast and easy using only 2 ingredients and no baking involved. Wonderful for non-bakers!
