COLD STONE BOWL COOKIES

Cold Stone Bowl Cookies

Not only are these cookies some of the best I have ever had, they are also a great activity to have at a party.  I mean how fun is it to make your own custom cookie?  This idea stemmed from me always wanting a white chocolate, pecan, dried cherry cookie, yet always getting outvoted as the rest of the family always wanted M&Ms or regular chocolate chip.  The idea continued to evolve adding lots of different goodie combinations and the cold stone bowls so that many different cookies could be created and cooked evenly.  We have truly enjoyed perfecting this recipe:)

BASE RECIPE INGREDIENTS…

1/2 cup softened butter

1/2 cup Crisco

1 c brown sugar

3/4 c white sugar

2 eggs

1T vanilla

1 1/4 c flour

1/4 c oat bran

2 c ground oats

1t baking soda

3/4t salt

Cream butter and Crisco.  Add brown and white sugar and cream.  Add the eggs and vanilla.  Add the rest of the ingredients and mix well.  Chill dough 2 hours or overnight.

Chill stoneware bowls or heavy glass bowls in the freezer for 2 hours or overnight.  (We used Salt Glazed Stoneware by Salmon Falls.)  The cold bowls will keep the dough chilled as you mix in your chosen goodies.

Preheat oven to 325 degrees.

Use a 3T scoop to measure dough into a cold stone bowl.  Add lots of goodies, then pack back into scoop and place on greased cookie sheet or greased parchment paper or reusable pastry mat 3″ apart.

Bake 10-14 minutes.  (I like my cookies to be a bit undercooked so I remove cookies before they look completely baked.)  Let cool on cookie sheet 3-5 minutes before moving to cooling rack to keep cookies from falling apart.

 

TIP: Place cookie dough on cooled cookie sheets before baking  to ensure they will cook evenly.
