So today’s #MeatlessMonday post is a holiday cookie recipe. Tis the season right? Totally not focused on eating healthy right now, especially after indulging this past weekend in the Berkshires. I promise I’ll get back to my healthier options once the new year starts!!
Magic Squares, also known as Seven Layer Cookies are so incredibly easy to make!
When I was younger, I loved making these because they weren’t complicated. You literally just layer each ingredient on top of each other. If you have small children, these would be great to make together. Or if you’re not into baking at all, but want to dabble in it- these would be a great option. There are minimal instructions & you really can’t mess these up.
To make sure these pieces cut perfectly, I always like to pop them in the refrigerator for about an hour after baking. Make sure to cut them into small pieces- you won’t feel as guilty when you have 3 or 4!
These layered cookies just melt in your mouth.
I always put more chocolate chips than called for because why not? The more chocolate the better- that’s my motto!
