One Dough Three Cookies: Easy Holiday Baking Recipe
I find the Anything Goes Cookie Dough recipe is the ONLY cookie recipe which is no fail. Seriously. This recipe turns out soft and chewy every single time.
It is simple to #BakewithHeart and gift with love this holiday season using Becel Buttery Taste margarine and customizable Anything Goes Cookie Dough. Put finished cookies in a tin as a homemade hostess gift. Or bring them to the office holiday party. Or wrap them in parchment paper and ribbon for a neighbour. Or even have your kids write the recipe (in their own handwriting) and layer the dry ingredients in a mason jar to gift to their teacher.
And do what I do — make a double batch and freeze half in an airtight container. That way you have homemade cookies on hand for drop-by guests, and you bake now, when it’s a pleasure, rather than bake the night before Christmas when you are stressed and frantically prepping for holiday guests. (Stressed baking is never good baking).
