I made a batch of sugar cookie dough for my Pizza Charity Lunch, since it is a-ok to pre-make and freeze the dough for future usage (aka emergency). Well, it turned out that siren day arrived earlier than expected. I wanted to send some home-baked goodies to my cousin from afar and being that it was mid-week and I had no time away from work, I thawed the sugar cookie dough and got creative with it. Using it as the base, you could practically incorporate any additional add-ins to make the final product interesting and unique. In my kitchen, I had a bag of pretzels that is about to expire and some wafers that my mom found too sweet. Using my ninja chopping skill, I crushed all these ‘leftovers’ together and mixed them into the dough. And the result? Both savory and sweet, a wonderous combination rather than a one note flavor.
Being that they are kitchen sink cookies, the sky is the limit. Here are other suggestions:
chopped jello beans
nuts & seeds
Just do not use chewing gum 🙂
