What's Your Favorite Cookie Recipe?

First of all, I hope this is in the right forum.

Secondly, in the spirit of the eating season I think it would be nice to gather different cookie recipes. I know I get stuck in the same rut year after year. This year I did find a new one I really liked well. I'm going to post two. And I cut and pasted Prin's from the TJT to get us started.

(Prin speaking) Brandy, here's mine:

1c butter
1/2 c white sugar
1/2 c brown sugar
1tsp vanilla
1.5-2 c flour

Cream butter and sugars, then add vanilla. Gradually mix in flour. Serve chilled with a spoon.

Ok, Here's my first one:

Crisper Cookies

6 Tbsp. butter 1 1/2 cups flour
1 cup sugar 1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
2 eggs 1/4 tsp. salt
1 1/2 tsp. vanilla powdered sugar
2 cups chocolate chips, divided

Combine butter and sugar in large bowl. Add eggs 1 at a time, beating well after each addition. Add vanilla. Beat until smooth.
Heat first amount of chips in small heavy saucepan on lowest heat, stirring until almost melted. Don't overheat. Remove from heat, stir until smooth. Add to butter mixture. Beat until smooth.
Combine the flour, baking powder and salt in a small bowl. Whisk together. Add to chocolate mixture in 2 additions, mixing well after each addition. Add second amount of chocolate chips. Mix well. Roll dough with 2 spoons into 1 1/2 inch balls. Arragne about 1 inch apart on greased sheets. Bake in a 350F (176.6C) degree oven for 10 to 12 minutes until edges are firm. Centers may be soft. Let stand on cookie sheets for 5 minutes. Dust with powdered sugar.

Yields: 30 cookies

Here's number 2.

Oatmeal Scotchies

1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour 1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1 cup (2 sticks) butter, softened 3/4 granulated sugar
3/4 cup packed brown sugar 2 eggs
1 tsp. vanilla extract 3 cups quick or old-fashioned oats
1 2/3 cups (11oz) package butterscotch morsels

Combine flour, baking soda, salt and cinnamon in small bowl with whisk. Beat butter granulated sugar, brown sugar, eggs and vanilla in large mixer bowl. Gradually beat in flour mixture. Stir in oats and morsels. Drop by rounded tablespoon on greased cookie sheets.
Bake in preheated 375F (190.5C) oven for 7 to 8 minutes for chewy cookies; 9 to 10 minutes for for crispy cookies. Cool on baking sheets 2 minutes; remove to wire racks to cool completely.

Yield: 4 dozen cookies

This is one of my favorite recipes. They're super easy to make. Frenchy--you could MAKE these--honest. ;)




Pignoli cookies

1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 cup confectioner's sugar
1/4 cup flour
1/8 teaspoon salt
1 (8 oz) can almond paste
2 egg whites
1 jar pignoli nuts
extra confectioner's sugar for dusting the cookies

Sift together sugars, flour and salt. Set aside

In a medium bowl break up paste with a fork.

Add egg whites and beat on medium.

Add flour/sugar mixture on low. Refrigerate 1/2 hour.

Drop on to greased cookie sheets 2" apart. Press pignoli nuts gently onto top of cookies--about 5 or 6 on each-prssing the cookies down gently but not too flat.

Bake at 300 for 20 minutes. Cool on wire rack. Dust with confectioners sugar.

This doesn't make a lot of cookies. Just about 2 cookie sheets. I nearly always double the recipe.

I make them with semi-sweet and dark chocolate too. I like the idea of the white chips. I love white chocolate.

I already posted mine in the tjt...:D It's basically typical cookie dough, but without the eggs and baking powder/soda, and then you chill it and eat it.:D

I love chocolate chip cookies with milk chocolate chips... I also love anything with lindt chocolate in it... Sometimes I buy a big lindt bar and chop it up for stuff... mmm chocolate...:offtopic: :D

I put both of them in together. It worked out great. I love experimenting with food, recently I make Turtles bark. Yummy.

Ingredients:

1 cup of water lemon juice
1 tsp baking soda 4 large eggs
1 cup of sugar 1 cup nuts
1 tsp salt 2 cups of dried fruit
1 cup of brown sugar
1 bottle Jack Daniel's Whiskey

Sample the Jack Daniel's to check quality. Take a large bowl, check the Jack
Daniel's again, to be sure it is of the highest quality, pour one level cup and
Drink.

Turn on the electric mixer...Beat one cup of butter in a large fluffy bowl.

Add one teaspoon of sugar...Beat again. At this point it's best to
Make sure the Jack Daniel's is still OK, try another cup just in case.

Turn off the mixerer thingy. Break 2 leggs and add to the bowl and chuck in the
Cup of dried fruit, Pick the frigging fruit off floor... Mix on the turner.

If the fried druit gets stuck in the beaterers just pry it loose
With a drewscriver. Sample the Jack Daniel's to check for tonsisticity.

Next, sift two cups of salt, or something. Who giveshz a sheet.

Check the Jack Daniel's. Now shift the lemon juice and strain your nuts.

Add one table. Add a spoon of sugar, or somefink. Whatever you can find.

Greash the oven.

Turn the cake tin 360 degrees and try not to fall over. Don't forget to beat off
The turner. Finally, throw the bowl through the window, finish the Dack Janiels
And make sure to put the stove in the dishwasher.

I wonder if I'll ever get the urge to bake, or cook for that matter. I love Christie's :cloud9:
