Double Chocolate Cookies
These are the perfect fall cookie for Thanksgiving and to #fillthecookiejar this month.
What could be better than adding pecans and cranberries to a chocolate cookie for the perfect Thanksgiving dessert cookie.
It is not an overly sweet cookie and the pecans and cranberries are a nice compliment to the chocolate.
Since we are serving these for Thanksgiving dessert, I made sandwich cookies with a white chocolate cream cheese filling and added more pecans for a double crunch. Why not drizzle more white chocolate on top! This cookie is doubly delicious and even grampy couldn’t stop eating them.
This is a very easy recipe to make and clean up is a breeze. Everything is in one bowl of the stand mixer – I prepped, baked, and cleaned up in 1 hour with a yield of 3 1/2 dozen cookies. Now that’s a keeper!
The sandwich cookie filling I made was just a quick and easy melting of white chocolate chips, a bit of cream cheese and a teaspoon of marshmallow fluff for just a bit of sweetness. I mixed it all in one small bowl with my itty bitty spatula and it was perfect.
Sprinkle on a little bit of chopped pecans for more crunch and this is a Thanksgiving cookie your guests will enjoy. This is also a great cookie for the dessert buffet as they do not need to be refrigerated – unless you are having summer weather.
