I used to bake cookies for Christmas but I have a bad habit of eating stuff while sleeping.
Its hard to tell a buddy you made stuff for him,only to wake up with an empty wrapper that was his.

I like the oatmeal raisin cookie recipe on the Quaker oatmeal box. You can use any dietary substitutes and it still tastes great.

I like light and delicate cakes and biscuits rather than stodge fest, one of my favs is lavender shortbread. I buy food grade lavender by the kilo and use it in drinks, puddings and cakes, it's great for healing sore stomachs and colds, it has to be food grade though and used lightly for a mild flavour. Here is a picture of some easy lavender shortbread that I made.

Look we invented the Biscuit to go with our cups of tea so biscuits are like your cookies.
A scone goes with cream and strawberrys...not gravy we drink that by the pint up north.




Oh and here is something funny while we are thinking about Biscuits.



lol...northern humour.

Use the basic chocolate chip recipe but throw in chopped up frozen peanut butter cups.

Little off topic unless you can consider a S'more a cookie......

Use your graham cracker and marsh mellow but substitute a reese cup instead of the chocolate bar...

Get a bag of chocolate chips. It has a good recipe on it for cookies. Use real vanilla though, not the stuff with propylene glycol in it. Use real butter too, it makes them a lot better. Adding a little bit of coconut oil with the butter does improve the taste too. You can make a half a batch too, you do not need to make a whole batch each time. We do that often.

Cookies last a long time in a cookie jar.

How about some Chocolate Salty Balls?



Ingredients 2/3 cup salted butter 1 1/2 cups sugar 1/4 cup brandy 4 cups semisweet chocolate chips 2 teaspoons vanilla extract 4 eggs 2 tablespoons cinnamon 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour 1/2 teaspoon baking soda 1/2 teaspoon table salt Coarse sea salt, to taste Directions In a saucepan, bring the butter, sugar and brandy to a boil, stirring constantly. Remove from the heat. Stir (with a wooden spoon) in 2 cups of chocolate chips until melted. Remember to give that spoon a lick! Cool mixture slightly. Stir in vanilla. In a large mixing bowl, beat the eggs. Gradually add the chocolate mixture and mix well. Combine the flour, baking soda, cinnamon and salt, then gradually add the dry ingredients to the chocolate mixture. Stir in any remaining chocolate chips. Spread into a greased baking pan. Bake at 325 degrees for 35-45 minutes or until a fork inserted in the center comes out clean. Careful not to burn your balls! Let cool just enough that it won't burn your hands. Meanwhile set up a small plate or cutting board with some of the sea salt on it. Scrape up the brownie mix, working around the edges. You don't want to use the hard edges for the balls. Begin shaping 1″ balls out of the mix, give or take in size. Roll the balls in the salt. Do this very lightly (I suggest you do NOT try to emulate the picture), a little sea salt goes a very long way. If you do happen to oversalt, just brush the excess salt crystals off. Too much salt is bad, mmmkay? You're done, put 'em in your mouth and suck 'em!

Yes, you bet, start with these...

Nestle Tollhouse Chocolate Chip Cookies

Mecca



ETA: Baker's trick: leave the chocolate chips out of a half-dozen or so, that way you can taste what a superior base recipe you are working with. tweak from there.

That's truly lovely; looks and sounds like something eaten in Rivendell.

Thanks, yes it's yummy, shortbread is often good but the lavender makes it better. I googled Rivendell, looks like somewhere I might like!
