    baking tips: always use real vanilla and real butter.

    oh, and if making an apple pie...use cold apple juice to make the pie crust instead of water..

    Re: Holiday Cookie Exchange!

    hadn't heard about the cold apple juice one! great idea!...some of those obvious things escape us sometimes don't they? lol

    okay...here's my one of many recipes :-)

    Mmmint-Chip Toffee Cookies

    2 1/4 cups flour
    2/3 cups unsweetened cocoa powder
    1 tsp baking soda
    1 tsp salt
    1 1/3 c unsalted butter, softened, not melted
    1 c sugar
    2/3 c packed light brown sugar
    2 large eggs
    3 tablespoons strong coffee
    1 tablespoon vanilla extract
    1 1/2 cups coarsely chopped pecans or peanuts ( i prefer pecans)
    4 chopped Heath Bars
    1/2 cup vanilla or chocolate chips
    *variation....one day my son got the brilliant idea to take some of those chunky 'Hershey's Treasures' candies, cut them in half and use them instead of the chips...they were decadently outstanding!

    preheat oven to 350
    combine flour, cocoa poeder, soda, salt. set aside
    Cream together butter and sugars until smooth, add the eggs and mix well. Add the coffee & vanilla extract. Carefully combine the flour mixture and beat thoroughly. Stir in the pecans, Heath Bars and chips. Drop by rounded teaspoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheets. Bake for 10-12 minutes.
    Makes about 3 dozen cookies.

    Re: Holiday Cookie Exchange!

    Great idea!!! i'll have to find a few recipes.
    Good morning, son
    In twenty years from now
    Maybe we'll both sit down and have a few beers
    And I can tell you 'bout today
    And how I picked you up and everything changed
    It was pain
    Sunny days and rain
    I knew you'd feel the same things...

    Re: Holiday Cookie Exchange!

    Chocolate Caramel Bars - A gal I used to work with would bring these in during the Holidays. Super rich and delish.

    2 1/3 c. flour divided
    2 c. old-fashioned oats
    1 c. packed brown sugar
    1 t. baking soda
    1/4 t. salt
    2 sticks melted butter
    2 c. chocolate chips
    1 1/2 c. walnuts, chopped
    1 c. caramel ice cream topping

    Combine 2 cups flour, oats, brown sugar, baking soda and salt in large bowl. Stir in butter. Reserve 1 cup, press remaining mixture in ungreased 13X9 baking pan. Bake in preheated oven at 350, 15 mins or until browned.
    Remove from oven and sprinkle with chips and walnuts.

    Combine caramel topping with remaining 1/3 c flour, drizzle over base. Sprinkle with reserved crumb mixture.
    Bake at 350 for 20-25 mins, or until lightly browned.

    Re: Holiday Cookie Exchange!

    Ok, this isn't a cookie recipe but it's great to add fudge to your cookie tins.

    This recipe is super easy! Forget the pain of having to wait for the sugar dissolve or using a candy thermometer.

    Festive Fudge

    3 c. semi-sweet choc chips or milk choc
    1 14 oz can sweetened condensed milk
    dash of salt
    1/2 - 1 c chopped nuts, optional
    1 1/2 t vanilla extract

    In a heavy saucepan, over low heat melt chips with sweetened condensed milk and salt. Remove from heat, stir in nuts if desired and vanilla. Spread evenly into wax paper lined 8 or 9 inch pan.

    Chill 2 hours or until firm. Turn fudge onto cutting board, peel off paper and cut into squares. Store covered in fridge.

    Other flavors you can make:
    Choc Peanut Butter Chip Glazed Fudge
    Proceed as above, stir in 3/4 cup peanut butter chips in place of nuts.
    Glaze: Melt 1/2 cup peanut butter chips with 1/2 cup whipping cream; stir until thick and smooth. Spread over fudge.

    Marshmallow Fudge
    Proceed as above, omit nuts and add 2 Tbs butter to mixture; fold in 2 c. mini marshmallows

    1 cup butter or margarine
    1/3 cup granulated sugar
    2 teaspoons water
    2 teaspoons vanilla
    2 cups sifted all-purpose flour
    1 cup chopped pecans

    Cream butter and sugar; add 2 teaspoons water and vanilla; mix well.
    Blend in flour and nuts; chill 4 hours. Shape into balls or fingers.
    Bake on ungreased cookie sheet at 325 about 20 minutes. Remove from pan; cool slightly; roll in confectioners' sugar. Makes about 3 dozen cookies.
    Good morning, son

    And I can tell you 'bout today
    And how I picked you up and everything changed
