These do not look like Mounds or Almond Joys, but the taste is very similar. I make these every Christmas along with my cookies and they are very easy and quick to make. They are very pretty on a tray when placed in decorated mini muffin liners.
This recipe uses a cake mix, any flavor, I love it with Devils Food and semi sweet morsels and or peanut butter chips, even good with cinnamon. The choices are endless .Don't use low fat or fat free sour cream, I tried both and they were disasters!!!
This classic holiday cookie from Southern Living will melt in your mouth. The extra vanilla amount combines great with the almonds. You can divide the dough and tint in different colors before you shape. They freeze wonderfully, too.
Call these cookies whatever you want but there are very small differences... This recipe was given to me by my Slovakian MIL... I must admit that I bought some of the fillings premade one year but I usually make my own. ... but they are delicious anyway... Check the Jewish or International section of your grocery store for premade.. The brand name is SOLO.... This will take several hours to prepare and cook... You can cut the dough recipe in half or quarter if you wish to make less.
This is the best cranberry oatmeal cookie I've ever tasted. Slightly crisp on the outside, but oh so chewy on the inside. I can't believe it hasn't been posted yet! It's from the Crisco site. Note: If you use old-fashioned oats, the cookies will come out crisper and less moist; If you use quick oats, the cookies will be chewier and more moist. Also, bake until cookies are *just* set, where the center of the cookie still looks a little wet.
As far as I can tell, this is quite different than other lemon and poppy seed cookie postings on zaar. Nice to serve at a holiday gathering. You can also freeze the cookies prior to coating in powdered sugar. Then when company is coming just thaw for about 15 minutes and coat in powdered sugar as directed. This recipe comes from Better Homes and Gardens Homemade Cookies book.
These cookies are a Christmas tradition in my household. I look forward to making them every year! I love the old-fashioned flavor. I saw a bunch of spice cookies on Zaar, but none quite like this. Cook time is if you bake about a dozen cookies at a time.
Every Christmas my friends and family look forward to this in the cookie tins I make for all of them. They get very upset when I do not make this. It is so easy to make. However, you will want to give them away as soon as possible because they are very addicting.
This candy is a must for gifts, parties, or special occasions, especially if your time is limited.
NOTE: The butterscotch chips will NOT melt. When they are soft, they look shiney. Do not overcook, as the chocolate will burn.
You may use more peanuts if desired. I usually throw in more to make sure the last pieces have some nuts in them.
This recipe is from the back of an old bag of "M & M's" Semi-Sweet Chocolate Baking Bits. I am glad I saved it, because these are great cookies and the recipe is no longer available, even on their website. This recipe is one of thirty or so varieties that I make every Christmas and it is always a favorite. *Added 12/30/07: I don't add the M & M baking bits AFTER the dough is refrigerated. I never understood why that was necessary and since I stopped doing it I've noticed no difference. I couldn't find the M & M's this year, so used a 10 oz. bag of Hershey Kissables and they came out just as good.* --K
