Cookie Cake

This is a Valentine’s Day celebration for my little ones. My girls (9 and 5 years old) Love celebrating Valentine’s Day, it is a tradition to celebrate it as a family. My husband cooks dinner and me and the girls make dessert, and as much as I love a luscious, fancy chocolate dessert my kids not so much. They love my chocolate chip cookies and that’s all they want! but this time, I wanted to them extra special. For this recipe I used Mexican Vanilla and added just a pinch of cinnamon to elevate the flavor of my regular cookie dough recipe. I added Valentine M&M and heart shape candy to the dough and baked it in a round baking dish. They were so happy with the result! The cookie cake (as they called it) turned out beautiful. I added a dust of powder sugar before cutting it because powder sugar can only make things better. I hope you enjoy your weekend! Stay warm, and Happy Valentine’s Day.

About

Hello, my name is Marisol Chancellor. I was born and raised in Monterrey Mexico. I’ve been living in Texas for 12 years and even when I love barbeque, fruit cobblers and sweet tea, there’s something that has the power of transporting me right back to my mom’s kitchen and gives me a little piece of home, cooking. I grew up in the kitchen and for me, memories are always linked to food, and behind the food, well, there’s always a story that comes along. So, please let me share with you my love for cooking and while we are at it, let’s share some memories, because let’s be honest, we are also hungry for nostalgia.
