Cookies with Creamer Fail

Have you ever used Coffee Creamer in cookies?

Awhile back, I had purchased a small bottle of International Delight's Vanilla Heat creamer, with a $1 off coupon I snagged up. I really wanted to try the new Holiday Limited Edition flavors like the Peppermint Mocha or White Chocolate Raspberry, but they were all gone at that time, which is why I went with Vanilla Heat. It was either that or Pumpkin Spice which didn't sound very good at the time. Vanilla Heat is exactly as it sounds. A Vanilla flavor, with a touch of heat. The taste is similar to the Red Hot Hearts candy that appear around Valentine's Day...so if you like those, you will love this creamer! I found it a bit spicy for my taste buds, in both tea and coffee so I wanted to find a different use for it, that could lessen some of the spiciness. I decided to make cookies with it! I've never done this before so it was an experiment I was willing to try...Because doesn't spicy chocolate cookies sound amazing?

I used an original cookie recipe and replaced the milk with the creamer.  (recipe posted below)
 They turned out really flat and chewy. The flavor was great!  But after they sat for a bit, 
they got so hard, even dipping them in milk didn't help. So that was a bummer. 
But they were great if eating straight from the hot pan! ;)

Cookie Recipe in case you might want to try it ;)
 1 C. Butter
  1/2 C. Sugar
1/4 C. Milk Product (creamer)
1tsp. Vanilla
1/2 tsp. Salt
2 1/4 C. Flour
 1 tsp. Baking Soda
Cocoa for chocolateness.
Bake in oven at 350 degrees until done (maybe 10minutes?)


Now if you do make these cookies, don't blame me if they don't turn out! lol. They will most likely turn out flat and hard like mine, but if you're daring... feel free...
Just let me know how it turns out ;)
