These are chewy, fudgy, SUPER EASY cookies that you can probably make right now! I have watched these disappear time and again and everyone is always asking for the recipe. It is almost embarrassing to give it out, it is that easy :) Enjoy! (12/14/06: I wanted to add that Betty Crocker has updated this recipe by adding 1 tsp. vanilla extract, but I don't want to change the original recipe.) *12/22/07: Please see my tips at the end of the recipe! **12/23/08: Betty Crocker has now added a version of the same exact recipe in which the cookie dough balls are rolled in granulated sugar instead of powdered sugar. I've tried this and they're also very good.
One of my favorite cookies of all time, these are fabulous warm from oven, but also keep well in an airtight container. My Hungarian/Austrian Grandmom called these "Butterhorns", an aunt on the other side called her version "Schnecken" and I have seen versions of this also under "Rugelach" or "Rululach". It really does not matter what they are called, they are AWESOME!!!! (Chill time not included)
One of our family favorite cookies for the holidays-- these are sooo melt-in-your-mouth delicious! These cookies go by many different names. If you desire, you may sub walnuts or hazelnuts for the pecans. I hope you enjoy!!!
This recipe came from a magazine page in Good Housekeeping, and I remember making them in the early '80's with my mom, so this recipe is at least that old. I've made this with several different Jell-o flavors and they've all been good. If you have trouble handling the dough in the cookie press chill it a bit.
This recipe is reported to work well in the Proctor-Silex Super Shooter or Super Shooter Plus cookie press. It will also work with other cookie presses if the dough is refrigerated first. I lost my recipe book for the Super Shooter and found most spritz cookie recipes to be too stiff to work in my machine. I found this recipe through Google searches at www.christmas-cookies.com.
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.
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.
My mother in law has been making these for Christmas for years and years. I make them for all holidays, using different cookie cutters for whatever occasion. They are the best when they are frosted, but sometimes I just sprinkle on colored sugar before baking. I call them "Play Dough" cookies because that's what the dough smells like to me! (Don't worry, they don't taste like Play Dough :) Chilling time is not included.
This is my husband's grandmother's recipe that is cherished by the family. They are the best cookie that melts in your mouth. They don't have the normal peanut butter fork crossing...but more of a crackled sugar type cookie... My husband comes from a huge family - and these are one of the cherished recipes!!
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.
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.
