I have had this recipe for so long that I can't remember where it came from, but I think I got it out of a magazine or newspaper. I like it because you can use the dough in so many different ways. For the Holidays, you can press half of a candied cherry in the center of unbaked cookie, and then after baking drizzle with either white or dark chocolate, melted.
The perfect Christmas cookie! A MUST for eggnog lovers! A soft, buttery, eggnog cookie with a luscious dollop of creamy, pudding-like eggnog filling. Please note: cook time does not include chill time.
This is a family favorite that I have been making for years. It's the most requested oatmeal cookie recipe I've ever made. I found it somewhere years ago, but have lost the source. The secret is soaking the raisins which makes all the difference.
This is one of the few recipes of my mom's that I have in her own handwriting. My husband was scarfing these one Christmas at my parents's house, so she sent home the recipe. She states this makes 5 dozen cookies, but she made them bigger, so got about 30.
A very tasty recipe from my archives. It's a giant cookie that's topped with coarsely crushed peppermint candies and melted white chocolate, then broken into irregular pieces.
*Note: The recipe asks for a baking time of 30 mins. I find that far to long, it's going to burn at that time. Start checking it at 12 mins. I'm happy with the results at 15-16 mins.
This is my "go to" cookie recipe! I got it from Pamela Lanier's Bed & Breakfast website. I love them because they are delicious! They have oatmeal in them which I put through the blender until fine-this way I can slip it to my picky eaters!!!
These are really fun to make for a party or informal get together. I made them for New Years' Eve this past year and wrote my own fortunes. The guests were totally impressed with them! They are a little tricky to work with--you have to be fast and shape them while they are still warm so they don't set. Recipe courtesy of Gale Gand's show "Sweet Dreams."
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...
This recipe is a great one to make for Christmas Cookie Exchanges. These colorful cookies add a real festive treat to any holiday platter. I made these for the first time for a cookie exchange and I made a double batch of green and a double batch of red.
