A friend brought something similar to a get-together not long ago. I decided to see if I could make it without a recipe as when I asked her for her recipe, she told me she had purchased it.
Kids and adults both enjoyed it!
This is my Aunt Dorothy's recipe. She would always serve these melt-in-your-mouth,unbelieveable tasting cookies. Aunt Dot, also my Godmother, always made hers with peach preserves, as do I. They are easy to do and prep time includes chilling. My original copy is in pretty bad shape, so I wanted to post here for safe keeping, and even though she is gone now, I know she would be thrilled I posted her recipe for all to enjoy.
From "Pots & Pipkins," which is older than my daughter and from Virginia. A Christmas must have for this family...similar to a Mexican wedding cookie or a pecan sandy. We prefer the almonds (I have used both slivered and whole) to save the pecans for other Christmas desserts!
I've seen this recipe on several food blogs and was obsessed with them. Being a big fan of Snickerdoodle cookies, I knew the moment I saw these I had to give them a whirl. What impressed me most about this recipe was that it was super basic, no need to run out and buy anything special, just raid your fridge and pantry and bake away! These are super easy to make and will have your house smelling heavenly in 10 minutes. These bars go great with a cup of piping hot coffee! Now get obsessed with these bars and get to baking! My hats off to Julia of Dozen Flours who I adapted this from and tweaked to create this new favorite of my family and friends :) Now everyone asks me for the recipe! I have not seen a recipe on Zaar like this, so I am posting it here to share!
These coconut peanut cookies were named for a Grand Dutchess of Russia after her wedding. The cookies are popular all over the world, but particularly through Spain and South and Central America. From the Food Network.
These cookies have been served for over 75 years in the quiet village of Orkney Springs, VA. We have stayed in this retreat center called Shrine Mont where people come for rest, devotion, and fellowship. A couple of things set these cookies apart: butter and shortening ensure a thick cookie, soft in the middle, with a touch of almond extract.
This recipe brings back memories of G'ma's cookie jar. We didn't care what kind of cookie was in there , but these were one of our favorites because it was different and you couldnt buy them. I love dates to me they are like candy. I hope you enjoy these "blasts from the past". These are a very moist cookie so don't overbake.
My 11 year old invented this recipe for a "older" woman. She is in 8th grade and he was trying to woo her with his cooking. I don't know if it worked but the cookies were fantastic! This uses a brownie mix as a base.
These snickerdoodle cookies are so delicious, and they have the best texture. They are so fast to put together too! I actually got it from an old recipe that my Great Grandma had clipped out of a newspaper. Grandma always knows best!
