Franken-cookies! Peach amaretto w/white chocolate chip & Chocolate chocolate chip marshmallow

Gooey marshmallow chocolate chocolate chip cookies
Peach amaretto cookies with white chocolate chips
Spurred on by my non-failure at Franken-chicken yesterday, I decided to try my luck at cookies, using ingredients that needed to be used up from the pantry. These were purely experimental, but my fiance´, the cookie monster, gives the 2 thumbs up. So I'm sharing!

I started with a standard recipe for chocolate chip cookies (minus the chocolate chips) and built up from there (this one is for roughly a dozen cookies).
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp. hot water
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 1/2 cups All-Purpose flour
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. Mix the softened butter, sugar, brown sugar until smooth.
  3. Add egg & vanilla.
  4. Dissolve the baking powder in the hot water, and add to the mixture.
  5. Add salt and flour.
For Peach amaretto cookies, add:
  • 3/4 cup Peach Amaretto jam
  • 1 cup white chocolate chips
I found this Peach Amaretto jam at Fresh Market and finally found a use for it!
OR for Chocolate chocolate chip cookies, add:
  • 4 tbs. cocoa powder
  • 1 cup chocolate chips (I used a mix of dark, milk, & white chocolate)
  • Top with marshmallows
I used 1 big marshmallow per cookie because that's what I had, but I think mini marshmallows would work well, too!
Spoon onto greased baking sheets and bake for about 15 minutes. Let cool.
I sprinkled the Peach cookies with a little powdered sugar for even more sweetness.
