I played around with my family's No Bake Cookie recipe and produced a single portion of this cookie that I feel is healthy enough to eat as a meal. They’re still very good but are much healthier. I keep getting asked for the recipe, so I finally decided to measure out the exact portions and post the recipe. THIS RECIPE IS VERY FLEXIBLE! When I make them I NEVER measure out anything and I often add more or less of ingredients and they still taste great. I sometimes leave out the wheat germ and flax seeds and just add more oatmeal. I have made these replacing the sugar with about 3 tablespoons of honey. I have changed the recipe from 1 tsp. to 1 Tbsp. of cocoa powder.
Everyone I know loves these cookies. I took a batch to a party once and disappeared within 30 min. with people asking for more. I especially like the cinnamon and sugar. I must admit, it is not my creation; I got it from the Pillsbury Complete Book of Baking.
These are delicious cookies that are super-quick to make when you need to satisfy a cookie fix. Even my non-cooking roommates know how to make them, so we have these about once a week.. they never last for more than 24 hours. Try adding coconut, nuts, other dried fruit, etc...
I cut this from the Winnipeg Free Press Food section on February 25, 2004 and decided to post it here for safe keeping! I plan to try this soon! Cook time does not include the 1 hour chill time for the dough.
These are one of the best cookies I have ever eaten. They make up easily, and they disappear fast. I make these every year when we put up our Christmas Tree. I serve them with hot Cocoa while we decorate our tree. I swear the cookies are anticipated as much as the tree!
I found this recipe on a search for lemon zest recipes (I had just gotten my Microplane Zester and had fallen in love with it and was zesting lemons and oranges all over the place). The lemon zest doesn't have a starring role in these cookies, but they are pretty yummy, very apple pie-ish.
I made this adapting the recipe for biscuits on the Bisquick box, and really enjoyed the results. This is not a particularly sweet biscuit recipe, which makes it a wonderful accompaniment for your morning cuppa! You can experiment by adding chocolate chips in the batter for added sweetness, or increase the amount of sugar. This tastes best served warm with a pat of butter or maple syrup.
These are a slight variation of a lovely cookie from a great diabetic cookbook called "Sweet & Natural: Desserts without sugar, honey, molasses or artificial sweetner" by Janet Warrington. I found this cookbook at a thrift store and have been meaning to try something from it. This is my first try. The original recipe lists carob powder as an optional ingredient. I decided to use it, but had to use cocoa powder as that was what I had. So feel free to leave it off. When you look at these cooled cookies the dates look like chocolate chips and my kids were slightly dissapointed when they realized they were fruit, but the enjoyed these a lot. A nice little fruity cookie which is quite sweet without any added sugar. Also, if you have over-ripe bananas which have not been frozen feel free to use those. I just have a bunch of bananas in my freezer.
One of my favorite cookies of all time, these are fabulous warm from oven, but also keep well in an airtight container. My Hungarian/Austrian Grandmom called these "Butterhorns", an aunt on the other side called her version "Schnecken" and I have seen versions of this also under "Rugelach" or "Rululach". It really does not matter what they are called, they are AWESOME!!!! (Chill time not included)
These are definitely not your standard chocolate chip cookies! They are of the "Oh My" variety, which is what you'll say after the first bite! The addition of Rice Krispies may seem odd, but these are great and a favorite of kids of all ages. An extra plus...this recipe make about 7 1/2 dozen cookies :) (Don't worry, you'll have no problem getting rid of them all!)
This is a European version of the snickerdoodle. This cookie has the softest dough and makes a bakery-style cookie that will impress you. (Recipe from Chef Express: Home Baking translated cookbook) Tip: You can make caster sugar by putting granulated sugar in your blender and pulse for about 1-2 minutes. The sugar should be reduced to half. It doesn't take long.. be careful not to turn it into sugar powder. However, most supermarkets do carry 10X sugar aka SuperFine sugar.
