Holiday Deliciousness

These cookies are simple and delicious with hot chocolate made from Nestle and Carnation ingredients.

Fun Rollouts!

This recipe was quick and easy to make. My children really enjoyed rolling the dough out and getting the chance to use their favorite cookie cutters for a chocolate chip cookie! The cookie isn't really sweet, but the frosting makes up for that and gives it just the right sweetness combination.

Holiday favorite

These looked like something fun and new to make for the holidays and they were delicious - but now too sweet. They were easier to make than I thought and so fun to decorate. We will definitely make these again . . . and again!

- Andrea Smith from Pewaukee, WI

lots of fun

I'm always looking for fun ways of dressing up the classic chocolate chip cookies and this is a great idea. Can't wait to try it.

Our Cookie of the Year

I don't know why I've never thought to cut this classic cookie into shapes, but it's the perfect recipe for our family "gift" cookies this year. The kids enjoy cutting them out and everyone enjoys eating them! We will be making lots this year!
