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).
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
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.
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 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.
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.

Yes, finally a cookie that really does taste just like the ones sold at the bakery! --- the dough amount may be reduced to make smaller cookies be aware that baking times will need to be adjusted --- NOTE do not double the recipe in one bowl it will not have the same texture if your going to double make two separate recipes in two bowls --- you will love these cookies!
This makes a lot of cookies. I got this recipe online and adjusted it for taste. There are many pumpkin cookie recipes here, but I think this one is different. It is all stuff you usually have in your pantry. This is great with chocolate chips and nuts in place of the raisins too. At the listed baking time you end up with a texture like a muffin top, but you can add time for a chewier cookie.
I received this an email from ATK. I substituted dried cranraisins for the dried cherries, semi-sweet chocolate chips for bittersweet chocolate and used my hand mixer. Dried cranberries may also be used instead of the cherries. Quick oats may be used instead but will yield a cookie with slightly less chewiness. These cookies will keep for 4 to 5 days stored in airtight container or zipper-lock bag, but they will lose their crisp exterior and become uniformly chewy after a day or so. I only baked one cookie tray at a time. These were very good. I froze them in individual bags for a sweet treat.
These cookies are so good, and they taste a little bit like pumpkin pie. They have a cake-like texture, but they are moist. I make them for my mother-in-law, primarily, because she is diabetic, and she adores them. We live at high altitude (6,800-ish ft.), and they work fine. *Note*: Do not flatten them before putting them in the oven. They do not change shape (flatten) themselves, but I think that helps them keep their moisture when they're stored.
Even the non-coconut lovers in my house liked this one! I modified a chocolate chip cookie recipe for my daughter who likes coconut. It has a mild coconut flavor...if you want a stronger coconut flavor, try coconut extract instead of vanilla.
This is an adapted recipe from the 1953 Edition of Better Homes and Gardens New Cook Book, although I know this as my Great Aunt Mimi's recipe because she tweaked some of the ingredients. These cookies have a simple yet extraordinary flavor.
