Another one of my favorite cutout recipes. I find this dough to be very easy to work with....especially when cutting out small or intricate shapes. I like to make these cookies thicker than my other cutouts. They're great for decorating and icing, too!
Prep time does NOT include time for dough to chill. Makes about 4-5 dozen; depending on size and thickness of your shapes.
I found this recipe on the back of Andes Crème de Menthe Baking Chips. I made a few small changes and am really pleased with the results! These cookies taste very similar to the Girl Scouts Thin Mint Cookies!
This is a great gingerbread cookie recipe. A little less strong than the traditional recipes, this contains no molasses and has butterscotch pudding mix in it. Goes great with the light lemony decorating icing.
These are absolutely the chewiest, moistest, fudgiest brownies ever! I have tried adding so many different things to the batter, and they ALWAYS comes out great. They are also great without ANY add-ins! BUT by varying the add-ins, you can make different brownies every week (or day!!) SUPER EASY PREP! So, add "whatever floats your boat" and you will not believe how yummy they come out :) Oh, and the recipe doubles just fine--use a 9 x 13 inch pan instead and add a few more minutes of baking!
I started making brownies from scratch a couple of years ago and this one is easy and yummy. :) It is a versatile recipe! I put a variety of different chips or nuts in or on top of it. I use it for any recipe that calls for brownies.\
Rich, tender, fudgy brownie that those chocolate lovers just can't resist. For a "mocha" experience, substitute coffee for the water. My family just can't help themselves, even when they're already "stuffed" when these are around.
I got this recipe from Martha Stewart Living a long time ago. These cookies have everything (except for peanut butter - I guess Paul Bunyan didn't like peanut butter) :-) I won a blue ribbon at the county fair for these, under the "cookie with the most ingredients" category.
I love biscotti of all sorts, and this recipe, packed with walnuts in a double chocolate dough, is just delicious. Adopted from Mean Chef in September 2006, I have left the original directions intact, but added my comments and notations in parentheses. As presented, this yields about 30 six inch long cookies. If you want smaller biscotti, divide the dough into 3 logs, and reduce your baking time accordingly.
These chewy granola bars were adapted from recipe #73754 from Kittencal. My changes were to add coconut, dates, and walnuts. I also used butterscotch chips in place of chocolate chips. You'll see that your own options are endless - just substitute the ingredients that your family prefers!
