Discover the Magic of Insomnia Cookies
Have you ever experienced the heavenly delight of an Insomnia Cookie? These irresistible treats are known for their buttery, chewy texture and crisp edges. I still remember the first time I tried an Insomnia Cookie. I was out of town and decided to give it a shot. When the cookies arrived, I was taken aback by the absence of frosting on the sugar cookie. But let me tell you, it turned out to be the best cookie I had ever tasted! The sugar cookie is perfectly sweet, incredibly chewy, and has a mouthwatering buttery crispness that melts in your mouth. If you’re eager to indulge in this cookie magic, worry not, for I have you covered. Let’s get baking and experience the wonders of Insomnia Cookies together!
The Ingredients that Make Insomnia Sugar Cookies Special
You might be wondering what makes Insomnia Sugar Cookies so exceptional. Delving deep into the recipe, I managed to uncover the secret behind their allure. Here’s what you’ll need:
- Salted Butter: This recipe calls for salted butter. If you only have unsalted butter on hand, simply add a pinch of salt to the dough.
- Margarine: Margarine might seem like an unexpected ingredient, but it’s the key to achieving that delectable buttery crispness.
- Granulated Sugar: As you would expect from a sugar cookie, only white sugar is used in this recipe.
- Egg: Just one egg is needed for this delightful concoction. If you want to halve the recipe, whisk an egg in a small bowl and measure out 1/8 cup.
- Corn Syrup: Corn syrup plays a crucial role in giving these cookies their chewiness.
- Vanilla Extract: The star flavor of these cookies.
- Butter Extract: While optional, adding a touch of butter extract elevates the cookies with an extra hint of buttery goodness.
- All-Purpose Flour: No need for any fancy flour here.
- Baking Soda
Let’s Make Insomnia Sugar Cookies
Making these delightful cookies is a breeze, whether you’re a seasoned baker or just starting out. Here’s what you need to do:
- Preheat your oven to 350°F and line your baking sheet with parchment paper.
- In a large bowl, combine the salted butter, margarine, and granulated sugar until well blended and no visible chunks of butter remain.
- Add the egg, corn syrup, and extracts. Mix until the egg is fully incorporated.
- Stir in the all-purpose flour, baking soda, and salt until the dough comes together.
- Using approximately 2 1/2 tablespoons of dough for each cookie, shape the dough into thin discs, about 4 inches in diameter, and place them on the prepared baking sheet.
- Bake for 11-13 minutes, or until the cookies flatten, spread, and the edges turn a beautiful golden brown.
- Allow the cookies to cool on the pan for 5 minutes before transferring them to a wire cooling rack.
Storing Leftover Insomnia Sugar Cookies
If you somehow manage to resist devouring all the cookies at once, here’s how you can store them:
- Room Temperature: Store the cookies in an airtight container to keep them fresh for up to 3 days.
- Freezing: To enjoy these delectable treats for a longer period, freeze them in an airtight container or zip-top bag for up to 3 months.
Freeze Baked Insomnia Cookies to Enjoy Later
To prevent your cookies from sticking together when freezing, follow these simple steps:
- Arrange all the cookies on a baking sheet in a single layer.
- Place the baking sheet in the freezer for about 1 hour, allowing each cookie to freeze individually.
- Transfer the frozen cookies to a zip-top bag, and you can take out one cookie at a time whenever you desire.
Reheating Insomnia Cookies for a Warm Treat
If you crave the comforting warmth of freshly baked Insomnia Cookies, reheating them is a piece of cake:
- From Room Temperature: Pop a cookie in the microwave for 7-10 seconds.
- Multiple Cookies: Reheat them in a 350°F oven for 3-5 minutes. You can do this whether they are frozen or at room temperature.
