These are basically a soft ginger snap. I made them for my 8 year olds class and they were fighting over the extras. I also made them for a very sweet older friend who said she hadn't tasted these since her mother made them when she was little, They make a ton and stay fresh for quite awhile. This works perfectly for Christmas or large amounts of company!
These are the most amazing cookies. They are crispy on the outside, soft on the inside and freeze so well. You can't even tell they were frozen! The best part - they are drop cookies, no shaping necessary. If you love nuts, use crunchy peanut butter and add the nuts, if not, use creamy PB and 2 cups of peanut butter chips. Cook time is for one batch. Dough keeps well in fridge so you can bake a batch every day and have fresh cookies!
A friend brought these to a picnic. After one taste of the warm-from-the-oven cookie, I knew I had to have the recipe. These are now the most requested cookie by my family. The recipe makes a HUGE batch of big cookies, but they do freeze very well. The 5 dozen amount is a guess, I've never counted! We love these and hope you will too!
This was printed by The Montreal Gazette. Every Wednesday they printed recipes and recipe ideas, and many of them come from cookbooks or chefs. This one comes from chef Michele Fireman. I've tried this several times, and it's always a hit in the house.
I love this recipe because it is so easy to roll out, and the taste is great. This is our favorite Christmas cookie recipe to make, but I also make them for Easter and Halloween. Sometimes I ice them or just sprinkle with colored sugar while they bake. I always double this recipe for us.
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.
