When I was younger, weekend mornings were my favorite. One or both of my parents would cook breakfast, my dad would make either scrambled eggs (which my sisters and I would eat with ketchup- SO gross now) or extra cheese-y omelets, and my mom would make pancakes or french toast, which I loved.
It's been a long time since I've had any of that (I hate eggs now), but I still love french toast and pancakes.
It's been a few weeks since I've baked, and I was craving baking something delicious and simple. I haven't made sugar cookies in a while, but I didn't want to make regular sugar cookies so I switched up the ingredients a bit and they taste exactly like the french toast my mom would make, soooo delicious!
French Toast Cookies
1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1 cup bread flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp cinnamon
2 sticks butter, softened
1 1/2 cups dark brown sugar
1 egg yolk
1 tbs vanilla extract
Line cookie sheets with parchment paper, set aside.
Whisk together flours, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon and set that aside as well.
Beat together the sugar and butter until light and fluffy, at least 3 minutes. Then add in the eggs and yolk one at a time, and the vanilla. Beat until fully incorporated.
Stir in the dry ingredients in three increments, making sure there are no streaks of flour. Chill in the fridge for at least an hour.
Set oven to 350 and spoon dough onto cookie sheets, about 2 tbs per cookie. Bake for about 9 minutes, or until edges are just starting to brown and the center is set. Cool on cookie sheets for 5 minutes, then transfer to cooling rack to finish cooling.
