This is a quick and easy not-too-sweet cookie, shaped by rolling into balls rather than rolled out and cut. The dough will keep in freezer for up to a week. The baked cookies will keep in an airtight container for up to 5 days.
An attractive fudgy cookie with a crackled appearance. I received the recipe from a male co-worker who makes these every year for the whole building. These are my friend Roo's favorite cookies. She calls them clouds of love because she knows I only bake these for special people.
Beautiful delicate sugar cookie with red swirls of raspberry/coconut/walnut filling. I've been making these since I was 11, and I can't count how many times I've been asked for the recipe. I usually toast the coconut and walnuts for the raspberry filling. I love to make these as gifts or for cookie exchanges around Christmas. I think these came from a magazine, maybe "Southern Living."
I love maraschino cherries and coconut. These are so easy that the kids can prepare them and they are great to have in the fridge for a pop in the mouth snack! We usually double this and use a cookie scoop do depending on how big (or small) you make them is how many you will get. Cooking time is chilling time.
I recently found this recipe on my computer and sadly did not keep the source of this delectable treat. Decided to add them to my trays this year. The cookies are quite large so you can always roll them out a bit more to increase your yield.
From Martha Stewart. These are YUMMY! And unlike some of her recipes, they are really easy. I make them in big batches as fall gifts (great for Thanksgiving teacher's gifts). Be sure to use real maple syrup- none of that fake junk
If Santa's elves grew citrus trees, these sparkling lemony bites would surely be among the branches. Sugared dough balls should be chilled before baking for 30 minutes or frozen 5 to 10 minutes to preserve their round shape. Keep chilled after baking.
A few suggestions - These are great with lemon extract added to the dough - in addition to the vanilla. They are also good with oranges and orange juice. I have heard it suggested but have not tried - lemon curd instead of buttercream and peppermint sprinkles with chocolate filling.

This is based on a Paula Deen recipe, so it's quite rich ;) This is by far the most luxurious cookie I make. They never last long. They're painfully easy to make, which may be bad news for your waistline.
These delicious cookies are like snowballs in that when they are left out they disappear quickly. No, they don't melt, but it seems that they attract little menehune (Hawaiian elves) that just love to gobble them all up when you're not looking!
Cooking time includes 30 minutes for cookies to cool off.
Also feel free to play around with the extracts. I have used pineapple extract with coconut extract, coconut and banana, and butter, rum and vanilla. All have come out well!
This is my mom's recipe that she has been using since she was first married 60 years ago. I have searched thru all of the popular recipes here and this one is just a bit different.....most use only brown sugar or have both sugars but then don't use both baking powder and baking soda. I've never had these cookies turn out wrong and they freeze so well. Whether they get reviewed or not, I know I'll be making them for years to come and now I know they are safe here.
My friend would absolutely kill me if she knew I was putting this online. It took me 3 years to get this from her. They are so moist and almost cake like, I think this has to do with the amount of sugar. I dont even like sugar cookies but these are my second favorite cookie (my first is always the pumpkin chip cookies that my grandmother made).
These are a little on the special side for Christmas because the ingredients might not be something you keep on hand. However, they are beautiful in a jar and delicious out of the oven. Giving this gift will get smiles all around and make you look like Martha Stewart!
The combination of tender cake flour and sturdy all-purpose flour produces delicate cookies. The dough will be crumbly after you've combined all the ingredients but will hold its shape once molded in a tablespoon measure and turned onto a baking sheet. You may need to add one to two additional teaspoons of ice water to the dough to achieve the crumbly consistency. **Edited to add for a "moister" cookie you may decide to add an additional 1/4 cup applesauce or butter.
