@Treejewel19:  I go for Snickerdoodles. Super easy, and always a huge hit. They’re basically a cinnamon and sugar cookies if you’re unfamiliar. You can PM me if you would like my recipie.

Chocolate cookies! This recipe adds peanut butter chips, but you can use any kinds of chips and ad-ins. I’ve used toffee, crunched up peppermints, etc, and they go over like gangbusters.

Macadamia and white chocolate is always a hit!  And shortbread at Christmas time with half of the biscuit dipped in chocolate is very festive too.

@Treejewel19:  I make chocolate chip cookies, but instead of just chocolate chips, I add in white chocolate, peanut butter and butterscotch chips. We call them “all chip cookies.” So if the recipe calls for 2 cups of choc chips, I’ll do 1/2 choc, 1/2 white choc, 1/2 PB and 1/2 butterscotch. They’re really delicious and each bite is a different combination of flavors!

I make chocolate chips, but instead of using all flour, I sub hazelnut flour.

If you don’t want to spend too much time, I’d avoid any roll out cookies

+1 to PP’s suggestion of snickerdoodles. I have a recipe for pumpkin snickerdoodles that I’m going to try this year: https://takeabigbiteoflife.wordpress.com/2012/10/04/pumpkin-snickerdoodles/

I made these egg nog cookies last year and they were SO good! http://www.savorysimple.net/eggnog-cookies/

I’m also going to try these mint truffle cookies this year: http://www.loveandoliveoil.com/2012/12/chocolate-mint-truffle-cookies.html

Another cheap and easy recipe is thin mints made with ritz crackers.. soo yummy, and really taste the girl guide cookies!: http://www.averiecooks.com/2012/07/homemade-thin-mints.html

@Treejewel19:  LOL well yeah if you’re making 6 dozen that’s definitely a lot of nut chopping. But a blender or food processor could fix that for you!

@Treejewel19: 

My easy go-to recipe is for Hershey’s Kiss Peanut Butter Cookies (I think that’s the name, but they’ve been called thumbprint cookies, black-eyed susans, and more by others). They’re gluten-free if you use milk chocolate kisses.

1 cup peanut butter

1 egg

1 cup sugar

24 Hershey’s Kisses, unwrapped

Mix, roll into 1 inch diameter balls, and cook for 9 minutes or so at 350. Remove them from the oven, let cool 5 minutes or so, then place one unwrapped kiss on each cookie and press down a bit (until the cookie flattens out some). Let the cookies rest until cooled (about 30 minutes) or until the kiss has gotten shiny from the heat and then re-solidified.

My uncle asks for these whenever we come around because he has celiac and his wife doesn’t really do fancy baking, so he can’t get gluten free stuff very easily.
