Amish Friendship Bread Basic Cookie Recipe

Several years back when I was in my creative phase of creating new Amish Friendship Bread variations, I wondered if cookies could be made with the Amish Friendship Bread Starter (if you don't have a starter click the link to get yours started! It is so easy!). Guess what? With a few kitchen experiments, cookies were created! I have several that I will share with you and I hope you give them a try. 
This is a soft and chewy cookie. It isn't as fluffy as the Brown Sugar Cookies that are so popular on my blog and Pinterest but they are soft! This is the perfect basic cookie recipe which has flexibility to allow you to add in your favorite ingredients. Go experiment and let me know what you created. 

Amish Friendship Bread Basic Cookie

Kitchen Notes
Use this recipe to create any type of Amish Friendship Bread cookie. Add up to two cups of nuts, chips and/or fruit and 1/2-1 teaspoon of your favorite spices. Use a small cookie scoop for bite size cookies or two scoops for a larger cookie. Recipe will yield up to 100 small cookies. Amazing, right? This is the perfect cookie for bake sales!
