Spreads…

Spreads – I was inspired by the Pioneer Woman making these on her television show and decided to give her Spreads Cookie recipe a try for myself.

I love watching cooking shows on television to give me recipe ideas and things that I can try in my own kitchen. I literally could spend all day watching the creative things people are able to do on cooking shows. One of the shows that I usually find myself watching on the weekend is The Pioneer Woman.

I really enjoy watching her put a spin on recipes that you can use each and every day. Last weekend she shared her recipe for ‘Spreads’ which is a quick and easy cookie that you simply make by spreading the cookie dough onto a sheet pan instead of using a cookie cutter or forming individual cookies. This spreading method makes this recipe super fast to make and most of the ingredients you probably already have in your kitchen which makes it even better.

Spreads Ingredients:

  • 1 cup Brown Sugar
  • 1 cup Margarine
  • 1 whole Egg
  • 2 cups Flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon Salt
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla
  • 6 ounces, weight ( To 8 Ounces) Chocolate Chips

    I don’t watch cooking shows, I usally get all my recipes from blogs or Pinterest. The Pioneer Woman sounds good though. I’ll have to try to find it. I like this recipe. Pinned it.

    Here in Oklahoma the Pioneer Woman has been popular for years. Have you picked up her cookbook yet? She has a recipe for an olive spread that she bakes on French bread that’s a family favorite at my house.

    Hello from SITS comment love! Cookies don’t get any faster than this. I find that the texture is softer and chewier when I use this method. The hubs loves cookie cakes so I have been spreading dough on cookie sheets for years. Never thought to ice them, though. Maybe that’s a good thing. haha

      You are so right! I like the texture of spreads and it does make them softer. The topping gives it a little something extra and you can literally top these cookies with anything…I love these! Thank you so much for stopping by from #SITSBlogging

    These look so yummy! I almost always burn the last pan of cookies because I’m tired of baking them, so I love this idea for getting them all done at once.

      They turned out pretty good. I like the idea of spreading the cookie dough instead of making individual cookies.
