Over the summer, I got to be a part of a really cool vendimia called “Molcajete Dominguero“. It is a monthly gathering in LA where a bunch of small Latinx businesses and artists get together to grind! My good friend Luis invited me to come join one of the dates and sell a few things, and so I did, and I was pretty nervous about it. I signed up super last minute and then quickly panicked trying to figure out what I’d be selling.
I sat down and brainstormed with Billy, and we eventually settled on selling baked goods. The day of the vendimia, I arrived with Abuelita Chocolate Chip Cookies, Snickerdoodles, and brownies. By the time the event was over, everything we had made was completely gone. The Abuelita Chocolate Chip Cookies were the first ones to go, and everyone kept coming back looking for them again and again! Since then, I think it’s been one of my most requested recipes on Instagram by people who got to try them at the event. When the Incredible Egg reached out to me to see how I like my eggs, I knew I just had to share this recipe.
Eggs are one of the most affordable sources of high-quality protein, and a delicious ingredient in many of my favorite desserts. I enjoy eggs many different ways, but I especially enjoy them in cookies.
A skillet cookie is always a good option when you’re entertaining because it’s easy to throw together, it prevents you from inhaling a dozen cookies in one seating (which I’m always guilty of) and you can dress it up with a scoop of ice cream or a dollop of whipped cream. Feel free to double the recipe and use a medium sized cookie scoop for 3 dozen cookies!
