What I love about this cookie recipe is that it can be customized to your tastes. Once you’ve mixed the basic dough, you can add in whatever flavor combinations appeal to you. Like chocolate? Make them chocolate chip cookies. Like maple and nuts exchange the vanilla extract for maple and add in toasted walnuts. Presto! You’ve got Maple Walnut Cookies. How about raisins and chopped almonds? Delicious! The combinations are endless and only limited by your taste buds.
My favorite combinations? I like chocolate but I go crazy for golden raisins and toasted pecans. Something that flavor combination that makes my day.
