a swirl chip cookie? don’t mind if I do…
Now where to begin? Swirl Chip Cookies. Swirl Chips. Those cakey-cookie things. They will answer to any of the above. There are similar recipes out there, but my family’s version came to us via my Grandma L., and let me tell you, we ate these puppies by the handful. Still do, actually.
When it was time to bake Christmas cookies my mom would ask us what cookies we wanted her to bake and we’d all insist ‘swirl chips!’, just to be shot down with ‘Those aren’t Christmas cookies, pick something else’. Well, I’m picking them now.
Cake mix, egg, oil, chocolate chips. Simple, right? Don’t let the humble ingredient list fool you. These cookies are soft, slightly gooey, and their rich cakey-fudginess wraps itself around you like a warm sweater. I love sweaters. And I love these cookies. And now I pass them to you. So what are you waiting for? Go. Go make them. Right now. You won’t be sorry.
