Here you go, one batter and any type of flavoring you can come up with. I got this from the New York Times. I like this because you are not stuck eating a lot of cookies of the same type. Also you add your favorite ingredient to it. I made three different flours, lemon, peppermint chocolate chip and peanut butter. I made these to be more cake like by keeping the temperature of the oven at 350F and letting them bake for about 13 mins. The cookies were soft and not crunchy but were delicious. I hope you enjoy them.
