COOKIES ANONYMOUS

Cookies keep popping up all over the place; and no, I did not search to see if one was already started... :?

Do any of you want to share your favorite recipe here?  One you love, or reminds you of your grandma's kitchen?  It doesn't matter if it's a special holiday cookie; it could even be brownies (which technically aren't cookies, but they are just as good!); or your granny's secret recipe (as long as you're willing to share); a cookie you just can't live without. 

Do you have a secrets you can share?  Love to hear all that you have to say.

Here's one of our favorites to start with:

Chocolate Coffee Crinkles
Sift together:
1 1/4 C Flour
1/2 C Dark Cocoa (Dutch processed, UNsweetened)
1/4 tsp salt (I never put this in)
2 Tablespoons instant coffee
2 teaspoons baking powder

Beat together in another bowl:
1/2 C soft butter (use butter, not margarine or shortening, please!)
1 1/3 C light brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla

Then add 2 large eggs.  Mix well.
Now, add in 8 oz of melted dark chocolate.

Add all the dry ingredients, alternately with 1/3 C of milk.  Mix well.

(this should have a chocolate mousse type consistency, very dark, shiny and dense).

Divide your dough into 4 parts and wrap in cling film/plastic wrap and put into the fridge for 2 hours.

Roll out 1 package at a time into a log (I actually put powdered sugar on the counter and then roll it out).  Cut into 12-14 pieces.

Roll each piece into a ball and then roll in powdered sugar.

Bake on parchment paper on a cookie sheet for 12-16 minutes at 350°F.  Let cool before removing from parchment paper.

lol


Here's one of my favs...

MONSTER COOKIES:
1 Cup Firmly Packed Light Brown Sugar
1 Cup Sugar
1/2 Cup Butter, Softened
3 Eggs
1 Tsp. Vanilla
1 Tsp. Light Corn Syrup
2 Tsp. Baking Soda
1 1/2 Cups Smooth/crunchy Peanut Butter
1 Cup Chocolate Chips
1/2 Cup M&M's
4 1/2 Cups Oatmeal

HOW:
Preheat Oven to 350 Degrees F.

Cream butter and sugars together. Add eggs, one at a time, vanilla, and corn syrup. Mix peanut butter in by hand, then stir in baking soda and oatmeal. The mixture will be very thick. Lastly, stir in M&M's and chocolate chips. Using rounded teaspoonfuls, place cookies on ungreased cookie sheet and bake at 350 degrees F for 10-12 minutes.

Cool a little and indulge with satisfaction!

Re: COOKIES ANONYMOUS

I have never replaced the PB with anything else Mon,we have a certain affinity for it.

I imagine though,that you can replace the PB with caramel or dulche de leche...then leave out the sugar completely.
And sift in 1/2 cup plain flour.
That should balance it out nicely.

Re: COOKIES ANONYMOUS

leche is milk...

kayleigh:
PJ (like PB&J) = Peanut Butter (not a fan). 

So PB&J = Peanut Butter and Jelly (sandwich, of course). 

[don't care for those either, personally].

Re: COOKIES ANONYMOUS

Dulche de Leche is a type of caramel Mon...

It's kinda traditional,I think it has south american influences.

What you do,is take a can of condensed milk,peel off the label,stick it in a pan of water,and simmer for 3 hours,topping the water up occasionally.
Let it cool down completely...overnight would be best.
Pop open the lid...there you have it...dulche de leche!!
The milk would have gone all brown and caramelly.
