So I thought I would update you all on my cookie extravaganza. I posted links to all my pinterest finds.
vanilla orange cranberrry cookies: These I will definitely be making again next year! http://www.kingarthurflour.com/blog/2011/11/16/soft-and-chewy-vanilla-orange-cranberry-cookies-homerun-for-the-holidays/
red velvet cream cheese cookies: I HATE creamcheese so refused to try them but Fiance loved them. He said these make the must bake list. http://www.twopeasandtheirpod.com/red-velvet-cheesecake-cookies/
chocolate cookies with peanut butter chips: These I make every year and will never leave my must bake list. I created my own recipe after much trial and error. Should anyone ever want the recipe just PM me.
peanut butter cookies with chopped reeese’s p.b cups on top: These are to die for! Oh my I adore them. I did fiddle with the recipe but wow! http://realmomkitchen.com/2227/over-the-top-reeses-peanut-butter-cookies/
malted milkball cookies: These were not so good in my opinion. I would only make them if Whopper’s are your favorite candy in the whole world. http://www.chef-in-training.com/2012/10/malt-whopper-pudding-cookies/ They were very malty.
apple cider caramel cookies: This I nominate as the best cookie of all time! My DDs hated them but they really made me curse being gluten intolerant. Amazing! http://www.sixsistersstuff.com/2011/11/apple-cider-caramel-cookies-recipe.html
chocolate chip cookies: I lost my favorite recipe and still want to wail! I did find a recipe that is ok but no where near as good 🙁
oatmeal raisin: This is my secret family recipe. People request that I mail these all over the world! These will NEVER get cut. Unfortunately I can’t share this recipe 🙁
sugar cookies: EVERYONE loves sugar cookies!
gingerbread men: I love this recipe! So many times I have had people say “I hate gingerbread men” then bite off his head, “I love gingerbread men”. Definitely the gingerbread recipe for kids. I doctor mine up to be extremely high calorie for DD. She eats them year round and it keeps her out of the feeding clinic. Yay! Undoctored version:http://allrecipes.com/recipe/gingerbread-men/
monster cookies: I couldn’t find a link that matches my recipe but this is a favorite of all my hunters. Good deer stand food!
white chocolate macadamia cookies: oh yeah love them! I have no recipe for them I don’t measure just eyeball it. 🙁
rolo cookies: These were only so so. I had never eaten a rolo or a snickerdoodle so I may just not be a fan. http://rachelschultz.com/2012/07/20/rolo-stuffed-snickerdoodles/
raspberry & almond shortbread thumbprints: These are still in the works: http://allrecipes.com/recipe/raspberry-and-almond-shortbread-thumbprints/detail.aspx?lnkid=7172
pumpkins cookies with maple icing: These I will be making tomorrow while I ice my gingerbread. http://www.delightfully-tacky.com/2012/10/pumpkin-cookies-with-maple-icing.html
cran pistachio: I found these to be a decent cookie. Not fabulous but decent and very pretty. http://www.the-girl-who-ate-everything.com/2010/12/day-1-of-12-days-of-christmas-cookies.html
andes cookies: I need to play with these some more. It has potential just was to flat and runny. http://www.sixsistersstuff.com/2011/04/andes-mint-cookies.html They were simple to make though!
Just thought I would share as I LOVE getting recommendations for good recipes. 😀
