10 Unusual & Delicious Cookie Ingredients

One of the fun things about baking cookies is the variety of flavors you can make. There are an amazing number of possibilities. Sometimes it is as simple as using dried fruit instead of chocolate chips. Or, sometimes it is more fun, like adding avocado in lieu of some of the butter. Even the simplest change can make a routine cookie feel bright and new again. For example, one of my recent favorite things is to add pumpkin and pumpkin pie spice to my favorite chocolate chip cookies. The difference is amazing. Here are some unusual and delicious cookie ingredients I highly recommend you try!
