Moms View Message Board: General Discussion: Cookie Recipes
Me and my DD want to do alot of baking this holiday season, and are looking for some cookie recipes.
Could you guys share some of your favorites.
I always do the same ones every year. Need some new ideas
You can post them on the recipe board if you would like.
I am making a bunch of my mil's cookies with the dks in memory of her for the holidays. She was a wonderful cook and I have her recipe box. I will put some on the board when I get a sec.
1 1/4 cups packed light brown sugar
1 cup granulated sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 12-ounce jar creamy peanut butter
1 stick butter, softened
1/2 cup multi-colored chocolate candies
1/2 cup chocolate chips
2 teaspoons baking soda
4 1/2 cups quick-cooking oatmeal (not instant)
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Line cookie sheets with parchment paper or nonstick baking mats.
In a very large mixing bowl, combine the eggs and sugars. Mix well. Add the salt, vanilla, peanut butter, and butter. Mix well. Stir in the chocolate candies, chocolate chips, raisins, if using, baking soda, and oatmeal. Drop by tablespoons 2 inches apart onto the prepared cookie sheets.
Bake for 8 to 10 minutes. Do not overbake. Let stand for about 3 minutes before transferring to wire racks to cool. When cool, store in large resealable plastic bags.
- A few things I changed were I used 1/2 the butter and cut back on 1/4 cup white sugar and brown sugar and substituted it with more oats instead to make them healthier.
Enjoy! They are so delicious!
(I use the big multi coloured m and m's not the little m and m's. They're such fun cookies. I haven't made them in a couple of years but I remember them taking a long time.)
I also love short bread cookies
oops! I cut out the line that said 1/4 cup of raisins. The recipe I used when I was younger never called for raisins but it might be good.
I have quite a few at home. I'll see if I can't post some this weekend.
One of my favorites....I'll spare you the urban legend
Neiman Marcus Cookie
2 cups butter
4 cups flour
2 tsp. baking soda
2 cups granulated sugar
2 cups brown sugar
5 cups blended oatmeal (measure oatmeal and blend in blender to a fine powder)
24 oz. chocolate chips
1 tsp. salt
1 8 oz. Hershey bar (grated)
2 tsp. baking powder
3 cups chopped nuts (your choice, I use walnuts)
2 tsp. vanilla
Cream the butter and both sugars. Add eggs and vanilla; mix together with flour, oatmeal, salt, baking powder, and soda. Add chocolate chips, Hershey bar and nuts. Roll into balls and place two inches apart on a cookie sheet..Bake for 10 minutes at 375 degrees. Makes 112 cookies
1 c. butter
3/4 c. powdered sugar
2 c. flour
1 tsp. vanilla
1 c. chopped Almonds
Mix all ingredients and roll by hand into small balls. Place on baking pan. Bake for 10 minutes in 325 degree oven. Roll in powdered sugar while hot and repeat when cool.
1/4 c. packed brown sugar
1/4 c. butter, softened
1/4 c. shortening
1 egg, separated
1/2 tsp. vanilla
1 c. flour
1/4 tsp. salt
3/4 c. finely chopped nuts
Heat oven to 350 degrees. Mix brown sugar, butter, shortening, egg yolk and vanilla. Stir in flour and salt. Shape dough into 1 inch balls. Beat egg white slightly. Dip balls into egg white; roll in nuts.
Place about 1 inch apart on ungreased cookie sheet, press thumb deeply in center of each. Bake until light brown, about 10 minutes. Immediately remove from cookie sheet; cool. Fill thumbprints with jelly. About 3 dozen.
Note: If using self-rising flour, omit salt.
This can be used in a cookie press, dropped by spoonfull, cookie cutter or pressed the bottom of a pan and used as a base for bar cookies. We recently used them for a vendor fair and I used different flavors of cakes some with sprinkles and some I changed the color with wilton's icing color. We have also made some red and some white and rolled them together as candy canes.

You need to buy the Funfetti cake mix and on the side of the box is a recipe to make into cookies. They are soooo good, and then you can frost and decorate them. Humm think I will make some tonight my son has friends here they will like that.
Thank you so much! We can't wait to start baking
