You'll Drop Everything To Taste These Divine Drop Cookies!




Though we love nicely shaped cookies made with fancy cookie cutters, drop cookies always have a rustic charm that makes every bite irresistible. Make a batch of drop cookies on a week night and you'll surely have enough spirit to make it through till Friday.

To make cookie baking easier, use a silicone baking mat. This innovative kitchen tool allows you to make evenly-baked cookies without burnt edges.

Chocolate Chip Cookies (The Wright Recipes)


"TIP: Want to add a slightly fancy touch to these cookies? I happen to have some vanilla beans hanging around from catering gigs, and like to throw in the scrapings from 1 pod when creaming the butter and sugar together for the cookies (keep the extract in there, too). Instead of throwing the empty pods away, I have a tip for you to make their flavor go a bit further in the kitchen."

  • 1/4 cup cornstarch
