Anyone in the mood to exchange cookie recipes? I have a few, but would love to have something more.. Unique… Anyone want to exchange?? I’ll put up my recipe for Cherry Cordial Creme Cookies!! (I have made these already and they went FAST, so I have to make more! I have tweeked it a bit from the original Hershey recipe)
- 60 Hershey Cherry Cordial Creme Kisses (Unwrapped and Frozen)
- 1 box (yes I cheated) Original Hershey’s Supreme Brownie Mix (the one with the syrup)
- 3/8 Cup Hershey’s Cocoa
- 1/4 Cup Water
- 2 Eggs
- Powdered Sugar
Directions: Heat oven to 350°F. Line cookie sheet with parchment paper, or coat with grease and flour. Mix brownie mix, syrup pouch, cocoa, water, oil and eggs until well blended. Drop medium sized drops onto cookie sheet. Bake 8 minutes or until set. Cool 3-4 minutes; sprinkle with powdered sugar. Immediately after sprinkling press frozen kiss into the center. Remove and put on wire rack until cool. (Yield about 60 cookies [5 dozen])
edt: I have recipes for many other cookies if anyone wants them.. (Classic Peanut Butter/Peanut Butter Blossoms, Classic Chocolate Chip, Sour Cream Softies, Banana Drop Cookies and Chinese Almond cookies to name a few)

Ooh, I want to play! I make Butterscotch Oat Drops (from Company’s Coming) but I make tweaks to the recipe:
- 1 cup/250 mL Butter or margerine, softened
- 1/2 cup/125 mL Granulated sugar
- 2 Eggs
- 1 tsp./5 mL Vanilla
- 2 cups/500 mL All-Purpose Flour
- 2 cups/500 mL Rolled Oats
- 1 tsp./5 mL Baking Soda
- 1 tsp./5 mL Baking Powder
- 1 tsp./5 mL Salt
- 2 cups/500 mL Butterscotch Chips*
- 1 cup/250 mL Chopped Nuts (optional)
Combine butter and both sugars in bowl. Cream well. Beat in eggs 1 at a time. Add vanilla.
Measure in remaining ingredients. Mix together. Drop by spoonfuls onto ungreased baking sheet. Bake in 350 F (180 C) oven for 8-10 minutes**. Makes 6 dozen.
*I usually do 1 cup butterscotch chips and 1 cup white chocolate chips and I always get rave reviews from people. I’ve also done white chocolate, butterscotch, milk chocolate, semi-sweet chocolate, and raisins in the same batch of cookies and people loved them! Just play around with it. You can add up to 3 cups of chips, etc but I normally do 2 cups.
**I find that I have to reduce the cooking time as I go along because the oven just gets hotter and hotter or something. Start low and work your way up if necessary.
Edit: I forgot. I almost always add extra vanilla to the dough because I love vanilla.

@ScottishMrs: AWESOME! Same here, I LOVE vanilla (or almond) in my cookies, I ALWAYS ALWAYS add extra if it’s called for in the recipe, in fact, I think in the recipe I posted, I added like a teaspoon of almond extract

These are my absolute favorites:
1.5 C butter
1.125 C brown sugar
1.5 C ground pecans
1.5 tsp vanilla
4.125 C flour
.75 tsp baking powder
.75-1 C melted chocolate (melts better with shortening)
Mix everything except half a cup of nuts and the chocolate into a dough. Shape the dough into an acorn shape with a spoon. Bake at 375 F for 12 minutes. When the cookies are cool dip one end into the chocolate and then into the ground nuts to make them look like acorn caps. You can also dip them into jimmies if you want, but I find them harder to eat that way.

@Eckle: How do you shape it like an Acorn with a spoon?

@hiroshymatetrastar: the dough is a bit crumbly but basically the texture of playdough. I just grab a glob of it and press it into the spoon (like a teaspoon that you eat with) it’s kinda an elongated acorn unless you have the sugar spoon.

1 3/4 Cup Flour
1 Teaspoon of Vanilla
1 Cup of Sugar
1/4 tsp. Baking Powder
1/2 Cup of Butter
3 tsp. Pumpkin Pie Spice

Combine dry ingredients in a bowl and wisk together then set aside. Cream together butter and sugar then add pumpkin and vanilla. Mix well. Add dry ingredients a little at a time until sticky. Add chips to your liking and bake at 375 for 12-15 minutes.
