Throw-in Ideas

  • Chocolate – Try adding chocolate chips into the batter or drizzling melted chocolate over the top after the cookies have baked.
  • Nuts – Peanut butter is another delicious paring with these cookies. Whole nuts, such as almonds or walnuts, can also provide a tasty crunch with each bite.
  • Coconut – To create a coconut macaroon-like cookie, add in a small handful of shredded coconut to the batter.
  • Cinnamon Apple – Cut an apple into small pieces and add them to the batter with extra dashes of cinnamon for cinnamon apple cookies.
