Serious Eats: Sweets
A Cookie A Day: Buffalo Chip Cookies
Note: Welcome to our third annual Cookie Month! Every weekday in December we're going to be sharing a cookie recipe with all of you, just in time for holiday baking. So let's get those ovens preheated and get started on our first batch!
Our first cookie recipe of the month comes from Sugar, Sugar, a compilation cookbook from Kimberly "Momma" Reiner and Jenna Sanz-Agero a.k.a the "Sugar Mommas," two ladies with a shared goal to preserve America's sweet traditions.
With recipes and stories submitted from all over the country, Sugar, Sugar is filled with sentimental sweets, among them these Buffalo Chip Cookies, a crisp-chewy take on the kitchen sink cookie. The base of the cookie is similar to a classic chocolate chip with equal parts butter and shortening, but when it comes time for the add-ins, you can really go wild.
The recipe calls for cornflakes, chocolate chips, rolled oats, and pecans but that's just the tip of the iceberg. Feel free into improvise your own Buffalo Chip Cookies with toasted coconut, dried fruit, nuts, butterscotch and peanut butter chips, or even other breakfast cereals. The batter can stand up to pretty much any sweet or salty tidbit that you'd like to mix in.
