Nothing says "Mom's having PMS" like the foreboding smell of chocolate wafting from the kitchen. When my family sees these these treats on the cooling rack, they know to head for the hills. The recipe yields 2 dozen (if you don't eat half the dough before it's cooked...) but as far as my family knows, it makes four.
The first time I made this I ate the whole pan. The second time I made this I ate the whole pan. The third time I made this I told my friends to keep me away from the darn pan and they ate the whole thing. Now we are all really fat and I need 3 new baking pans... =)
These are big delicious cookies. It's also wholesome because it's made with pumpkin. The kids will love making up different faces on each cookie. Make these cookies with your favorite goblins, and they'll gobble them up before you can say BOOO!
Since I'm not a native New Yorker, I can't say how these compare to the full fat version. Nevertheless, these are delightful, soft cookies with just a hint of lemon. They are wonderful when in the mood for something a little different. Recipe taken from Cooking Light.
These are a very rich, bar type cookie. Easy to prepare, a favorite with young and old alike. Great for picnics, potlucks, holiday cookie trays or any get together. Warning!! They can become "addictive" ;)
this makes 12 huge cookies..with an abundance of chocolate chips...some chips are melted and mixed in the dough and some are chips...the result is a dark chocolate cookie with a heap of chocolate chips..from Elinor Klivans...
Butter tarts are a Canadian tradition. Waaaay back in the 1970s, a national contest here in Canada concluded that these butter tarts, originating from Wilkie's Bakery in Orillia, Ontario, were the best. I certainly think so and it's the only recipe I use. Add a sprinkle of toasted walnuts when you add the raisins, if you wish, or use only walnuts if you don't like raisins.
