Whether soft and gooey, crisp and crunchy, or fruity with sprinkles, cookies are wonderful -which is why October is dedicated to their glory.
When baking cookies, a few staple ingredients exist – sugar, eggs, butter, milk, and chocolate chips.
For those looking to spice up this classic treat, there’s one ingredient you would never think to include for a unique, mouth-watering cookie – Colman’s Prepared Mustard.
In honor of National Cookie Month, Colman’s Mustard, known for its distinct zesty flavor, has provided a must-try recipe for Sweet and Spicy Chocolate Cookies.
These sweet and spicy chocolate cookies are the best of all worlds, chocolaty, sweet with a kick of spice.
