Felice’s all purpose Stress-Free Holiday Shortcuts– these make great cookie bars as well.

  • Cream 1/4 cup of butter with 3/4 cup of coconut oil and 3/4 cup of white sugar and 3/4 cup of brown sugar
  • Add two eggs and beat well
  • Add 1 teaspoon of salt, 1 teaspoon of baking soda and 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
  • Slowly add 2 1/4 of unbleached flour (if the dough is very sticky, slowly add up to 1/4 of a cup of flour)

You can use this basic dough to make:

  • 2 cups of White chocolate cookies with macadamia nuts
  • 2 cups of Chocolate chip cookies with walnuts or pecans
  • 1 cup of oatmeal with walnuts or pecans

Use this for cookies or for a short-cut use a pan and make pan cookies. Bake at 350 degrees.
