These biscuits (cookies) are easy to make, taste delicious and keep well. They also look lovely with their centres of sparkling red jam. They're perfect for afternoon tea, after-school or picnics. Yes, they're a bit fiddly to make but believe me, they're worth the effort!
These cookies come from Camilla Saulsbury's Cake Mix Cookies book. My son (age 9) actually made these and they are VERY rich. Kinda a cross between a chocolate cake and a brownie. Perfect for your chocolate lover and very easy to do. Uses a chocolate cake mix.
These are like traditional peanut butter cookies, but unique in that they are flavored with maple! This was Judith Korbey's of Methuen, Massachusetts contribution to the 1958 Pillsbury Bake-Off. I got the recipe from the 50th Anniversay Best of the Bake-Off Cookbook.
My grand-daughter sent me this recipe she says they are delicious. These cookies work very well using Splenda or Splenda for Baking,in place of the white sugar. (note, I have been trying different ways to cut down on sugar, using 2 tablespoons molasses in stead of the brown sugar works good and using the splenda for baking, I have also used all butter instead of shortening & butter with good results)
These are wonderful soft and chewy ginger cookies. They make a lovely afternoon treat or could be put in a lunch box. They are originally from "Hey, Mom! I'm Hungry!" by Susan Powter and were supposed to be cookies to use to make ice cream sandwiches. Honestly, though, they never last long enough in our house to put ice cream between them! They are gobbled up as soon as they are cool enough to hold!
These cookies are a chocolate lovers dream! When you make these cookies you will know why I have named them the best! To achieve the perfect texture both margarine and butter should be used and the dough has to be chilled for a minimum of 5 hours. These cookies have both flavor and the perfect texture! This will make quite a lot of cookies depending on the size that you make them, I make mine very large so I use about two tablespoons of batter for each cookie. Make certain to sift the cocoa powder first! Yield is only estimated depending on the size of cookies.
Something i found from the kahlua website (www.kahlua.com) which turned out really well. And man...who can refuse M&Ms and kahlua!! Turns out a nice brown colour, with brightly coloured candy bits. I think the wonderful texture came from the grounded oatmeal. Try this for something different.
This cookie is BY FAR my family's favorite cookie that always disappears first on the Christmas cookie tray! They are very simple, but kids and adults alike love this chewy, chocolaty cookie. I usually double the recipe, which will use one 12 oz. bag of M&M's. You can make these festive by using holiday M&Ms, which I love to do at Easter and Christmas
This is my very favorite gingerbread cookie recipe. The dough is so firm and nice to work with and is so wonderful smelling that it is almost like a stress reliever. These disappear in lightning speed in my house! This recipe is adapted from a recipe in the Joy of Cooking and according to the entry they only have 3 grams of fat per cookie! If you want crisp cookies roll out very thin. Thicker cookies = softer cookies, thinner cookies= crisper cookies. If the dough is too sticky, chilling should help.
**I noticed a lot of people have been having some sticky dough issues. You need to make sure you let the dough rest at LEAST two hours. For some reason this helps make the dough more workable. I live in FL and we have terrible humidity, but I have never had a problem with sticky dough in this recipe.
I got these from a co worker and she told me they tasted like Girl Scout Cookies so I tryed them. I am do have to say they taste as close to the Girl Scout cookies as you can get. Prep times includes the chilling.
