Pick your Flavour Cookies

I wanted to experiment in the kitchen with some cookies ( again I know) – and couldn’t decide what I wanted . Cacao, Matcha, Turmeric..? So I decided to make a base dough and then split it up and add different flavours. Both turned out so well and meant I didn’t have to make the choice of one flavour ( thank god ) . What else would you add? Maybe some cayenne and cacao to half and walnut and choc chip to another? Play around with the spices and flavours in your kitchen and get creative! Share your flavours with me I would love to see @scoopitup_
