Recipes I'm planning to try this at some point during a holiday season. (Recipes we have tried and loved are in a companion cookbook.) My family traditionally gives away 2 dozen trays of cookies and candies as gifts, so there's a whole lot of baking going on. The cover picture was taken just before packing up our 2005 Christmas tins.
This recipe is very easy to put together and takes practically no time to make. Try other flavors of cake mixes if you like. When I make them, I use 2 cups (total) of peanut butter chips and chocolate chips mixed together. Very easy to whip up at halftime!
"This must be one of the best cookies I have ever eaten." Yep, that's what my mother said the first time I ever made this cookie. It is a GREAT cookie recipe, and not difficult to make at all. I tripled the recipe and took it to school to sell... I sold all of them with in an 80 minute time span to only 4 people. They are good cookies, I can't resist them whenever I make them. And they turn out so nice whenever you bake them, it's hard to make an ugly snickerdoodle. lol. Enjoy. (prep time is estimated)
These are rich, yummy layered squares that require no bowl or mixing. They are very easy to make and come out wonderful. (I have no idea where the name came from...got these out of a 30 year old women's club cookbook.) 12/23/08: Butter amount changed to reflect the advice and opinions in reviews. Thanks!
Every Christmas my friends and family look forward to this in the cookie tins I make for all of them. They get very upset when I do not make this. It is so easy to make. However, you will want to give them away as soon as possible because they are very addicting.
"What a delectable treat for Eggnog lovers everywhere! These cookies have a wonderful spicy aroma and are great tasting. The fragrance of nutmeg and cinnamon will infuse your home with holiday spirit as you bake these cookies. They make delicious gifts and are a welcome addition to cookie exchanges. "
This cookie is BY FAR my family's favorite cookie that always disappears first on the Christmas cookie tray! They are very simple, but kids and adults alike love this chewy, chocolaty cookie. I usually double the recipe, which will use one 12 oz. bag of M&M's. You can make these festive by using holiday M&Ms, which I love to do at Easter and Christmas
Heavenly is all I can say!! I had these cookies on a trip many years ago while staying at a Doubletree Hotel (they left one on each pillow each day after cleaning the rooms) and always thought they were "THE BEST" chocolate chip cookies I had ever eaten! I have searched High and Low for a recipe for anything similar to what I had eaten at the Doubletree and recently found this recipe (unfortunately I can't remember where I got the recipe from)and have made them several times since. They are a little more time-consuming than regular chocolate chip cookies but well worth the extra time! This recipe makes extra large cookies. I'm not sure as to the exact prep time and I don't always chill the dough overnight) From Even More Top Secret Recipes.
I love these cookies! They are slightly crisp on the outside and so soft and tender on the inside. These are my dad's favorite cookies- I made them for him often. This recipe uses both shortening and butter.
