This is a recipe I found on the back of the wrapping for a cookie sheet. I have not tried it yet, I'm just storing it here so I don't lose it.
The time is a guess, because it doesn't specify. I also have no idea how many cookies this makes, because it also doesn't specify that.
The first time I had these at my friend's house I almost devoured the whole platefull. She thought it would be a better idea if she gave me the recipe. These are really amazingly delicious, and very addictive.
I know... Not ANOTHER chocolate chip cookie recipe... BUT, you'll find that these are sheer perfection, large bakery-style, thick and chewy, cookies that taste as good as they look with a fool-proof set of instructions. It was pointed out to me that this recipe is from Baking Illustrated, perhaps so as I wrote down the ingredients from a morning show years ago! Thanks for letting me know.
You would never believe that a cookie without butter and whole eggs could be this good. I have made these several times and each time I get a "mmmm...these are really good mom!" I came across this Chocolate Chip Cookie (CCC) recipe in Cooking Light. being an AVID CCC lover I knew I had to try. These were almost as good as the original Tollhouse recipe and without the worry of added fats (ie butter, whole eggs) I feel better about eating these. The result is a thick, chewy Chocolate Chip Cookie. Oh - the original recipe didn't call for butter extract - that was my own addition...I've also skipped the chilling and everything worked out just fine! The original recipe called for corn syrup - but honey works just as well and is not nearly as bad for you as HFCS...**UPDATE** I also wanted to add that recently we have been using organic virgin coconut oil instead of canola and it gives it the yummiest, most subtle "something" flavor. We also like to use these for ice cream sandwiches - because there is no butter the cookies dont get rock hard and they keep their nice chewy consistency. You can also try my oatmeal cookie recipe, also low fat & yummy! #300761
This is my husband's grandmother's recipe that is cherished by the family. They are the best cookie that melts in your mouth. They don't have the normal peanut butter fork crossing...but more of a crackled sugar type cookie... My husband comes from a huge family - and these are one of the cherished recipes!!
These are my absolute favorite cookies. A friend in college had received a huge tin of homemade cookies from her mother and a version of these cookies were inside, along with many other types of cookies. I had never heard of black pepper cookies before and loved the unique flavor-sweet & buttery, with a slight kick from the pepper. I searched for years to find the recipe and finally found it in a Watkins spices cookbook several years ago. I make these every year for the holidays and everyone always wants to know the secret of my "vanilla flecked" butter cookies. Update: Eggs sizes seem to be shrinking, so depending upon the size of the eggs in your area, you may need to use an XL egg rather than a large. Regarding the pepper: fresh ground will produce huge grains of pepper and make things far too peppery and savory tasting. Please use finely ground pre-ground black pepper in this recipe, carefully measured using a measuring spoon and leveled off.
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.
These have a wonderful texture - buttery, melt-in-your-mouth soft, yet a little crunchy. The cornstarch makes this shortbread especially tender, while the addition of oatmeal give it a bit of crunch. Using old-fashioned oats instead of quick-cooking will provide more crunch. Recipe by Elinor Klivans. These can be made ahead and frozen up to 3 months. Wrap them tightly with plastic wrap, then seal in a clean plastic/metal container.
