Favorite Cookie Recipes for All!

Hey Everyone!

Hope you all are having a great day!  I did a little facebook post last week about favorite Christmas Cookies, and Since I was making cookies with my kiddos and dear friend Becca this week, I thought we would share some of the fav recipes from both Facebook Followers and US here!! :)

MY ALL TIME FAVORITE COOKIE IS ….

  • 1 Cup of Butter (softened)
  • 1/4 Cup of Sugar
  • 1/4 Cup of Crushed Peppermint Hard Candies (Candy Canes)

  • 1/4 Cup of Corn Starch

Topping of Cookies

  • 1 Cup of 10x Sugar
  • 1-2 Tbsp of Milk
  • 1 tsp of Vanilla

Mix butter, sugar, vanilla, and candy together.  Slowly stir in flour and cornstarch.  Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.  Spoon out cookie dough onto paper and flatten with wet spoon or glass (touch dough as little as possible).  Bake your cookies at 300 degrees F for 20 minutes.  Cool for 5 minutes and then drizzle with sugar/milk/vanilla mixture and sprinkle with crushed candies on top! YUMMY!  (Makes about 2.5 dozen cookies)

GINNI’S CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIES by Ginni W.

  • 2/3 cup butter
  • 2/3 cup shortening
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup brown sugar packed
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 packages (12 oz each) semi-sweet* chocolate chips ½ cup chopped nuts (if desired)Mix shortening, sugars, eggs and vanilla together until creamy. Mix dry ingredients together. Add to shortening mixture. Stir until well mixed. Add chocolate chips and nuts (if desired). Drop spoonfuls onto cookie sheet. Bake at 350 for 8-10 minutes or until done. Makes about 2 dozen cookies. This recipe is based on a Betty Crocker recipe. I ALWAYS use Crisco shortening and REAL butter and vanilla extract. The flavor is just soooo much better that way! * For an added flavor twist, try plain or mint M&Ms, mint chocolate chips or butterscotch chocolate chips.
