Unlike some of my friends who have somehow recently managed to eat too many cookies, I'm going through cookie withdrawal. I only made two kinds of cookies this holiday season, and since I love to bake, I've desperate just to make more.
So tonight, I'm making my favorite: Onion Cookies. Well, they're actually Hershey's Toffee Bits Cookies, but they've been affectionately named "Onion Cookies" by my sister who once was making them and renamed them to prevent me from indulging. Although I hate onions, the name failed to detour me. I know better than to think my fellow onion-hating sister would add the foul vegetable into cookies! Now they're my favorite!
Here's a cookie baking tip: I always use parchment paper. It helps the cookies keep their shape and makes cleaning the cookie sheets a cinch!
Also, I've recently stopped eating dairy because of an allergy, so I substituted the butter with Crisco butter flavored shortening. The cookies still tasted great!
