Milk and Cookies.
I think I gained a pound just typing out the word "cookies," but, no one can deny the fact that milk and cookies definitely take center stage this time of year. Not only is it tradition to leave Santa milk and cookies on Christmas Eve, but it seems like cookies are everywhere! Luckily, Lehigh Valley Dairy Farms is making sure we have cold, fresh milk to pair with our favorite cookies.
Did you know, according to a study done at Cornell University, milk begins to lose essential nutrients, such as Vitamin A, in as little as 2 hours after being exposed to light. It also begins to have a noticeable difference in flavor. But, Lehigh Valley’s new Pure Protect bottle protects your milk and carefully preserves both flavor and nutrients so every serving of Lehigh Valley milk is as good as the first sip. My family really enjoyed this milk.
So, I've been testing out different recipes, trying to come up with the perfect cookie to pair with Lehigh Valley Milk, and I think I've got it. These Chocolate Marshmallow Cookies are the perfect combination of chewy, flaky, chunky, delicate and delicious. They are an ideal match for a nice, cold glass of milk.
Here's the Recipe for these Chewy Chocolate Marshmallow Cookies:
* 4 tablespoons butter
* 1 cup micro-mini marshmallows
* 2/3 cup white flour
* 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
* 1/2 teaspoon salt
* 2 large eggs
* 3/4 cup light-brown sugar
* 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
