I found this recipe on foodnetwork.com's 12 Days of Cookies 2008. Giada's Peppermint-Chocolate Sandwich Cookies are built around store bought sugar cookie dough, which makes it a great recipe to whip up with kids. These cookies have a chocolate-peppermint center and then are topped with chocolate and sprinkled with crushed peppermint. Recipe courtesy of Giada De Laurentis. Please note: time does NOT include chill time.
Update: I used a 2" round biscuit cutter and was able to get 20 cookies from the batch. I also found it easier to spread the melted chocolate on the top of the cookies with the back of a spoon than to dip the cookies into the chocolate.
This is a "cakey" cookie recipe that I found years ago in an old cookbook that I bought at a garage sale. According to the book, these are traditional cookies served in Russia for the Christmas holiday.
Another recipe that I found on the Pogo gaming site. These layered tropical bars contain shredded coconut, macadamia nuts and lime juice. I haven't had a chance to make them yet, but I am looking forward to trying these.
Chicken soup gets old fast when you're under the weather. Make Food Network Kitchens' immunity-boosting cookie, instead. These cookies contain ginger, cranberries, oats, walnuts and yogurt. These five powerful ingredients might not cure the flu, but they can help. I found this recipe in the October, 2009 issued of the Food Network Magazine. Time does not include chill time.
