Cookies and Milk Cookies

For this month’s Penotti Canada recipe, I chose to work with Duo Penotti Cookies & Milk spread.  I mean, it’s the summer holidays in Canada which means there will be a lot of kids with a lot of time on their hands. What could be better than have them help make their own snacks? And who doesn’t like an easy cookie recipe? This one has only a handful of ingredients so if you have a jar of Duo Penotti in your pantry, you’re probably set. They only take a few minutes to whip up and bake so you can literally have a warm cookie in your hand (and in your glass of milk) in under an hour.

Duo Penotti Cookies and Milk spread on eatlivetravelwrite.comThe Duo Penotti Cookies & Milk spread tastes exactly like a certain chocolate cream sandwich cookie that I used to enjoy when I was younger. It’s is made with real cookies (50%), organic milk, UTZ certified cocoa (supporting sustainable cocoa farming) and RSPO certified sustainable palm oil. It’s not too sweet which I really like in a spread and it’s great to bake with because it’s not too sweet. It makes for a soft cookie, yet sturdy cookie that’s perfect for dunking. To get your cookies perfectly round, I suggest using a cookie scoop – less mess to clean up as well!

    I definitely have some kids who love to bake, with some time on their hands! This looks like a great solution. My fave cookie to dunk is anything chocolate, but I LUV LUV the grown-up version of that activity- dunking biscotti in coffee!

    Yum! They look irresistable those cookies! Especially with a nice warm glass of milk! I’m due for some break of that eternal diet…
