you have to try chocolate marshmallow cookies. They are so good and so easy.

1/3 cup cocoa
½ tsp salt
½ tsp baking soda
1 can chocolate frosting
18 marshmallows cut in half
1 cup sugar
½ cup Crisco
1 egg
¼ cup milk
1 tsp vanilla

1)Mix dry ingredients, except sugar.
2)Mix sugar and Crisco until smooth. Add egg, vanilla and milk. Mix well
3)Add flour mixture and mix.
4)Place spoonfuls on baking sheet. Bake 8 minutes at 350 degrees. Do not over bake.
5)Place ½ marshmallow cut side down on each cookie. Press slightly. Bake 2 minutes longer.
6)Cool. Then frost.

I make them every year and they are gone in two days.

My family's favorite cookie is one made with a Lemon cake mix. I have to google the recipe each time, because I can't remember how much goes in. "Lemon Cake Mix Cookies" pretty easy! And yummy!!!

I love to bake cookies...especially around the holidays! One of my most favorites is Mrs. Sigg's Snickerdoodles from allrecipes.com. They are different than just a regular chocolate chip cookie...and they are so yummy!

Kelli said...

You know what I'm making for my exchange...chocolate chip cookies. Why, because everyone loves chocolate chip cookies. I'm going to used color chips to make them festive. Last year I made a frosted sugar cookie:
Jam thumb prints are always a hit too. Now I want some cookies!
I have my project almost ready for Thursday. I can't wait!

Hi Heidi. A cookie swap. How fun!!
I really like Coconut Oatmeal Chocolate Chip. Double Chocolate Oatmeal is good. I also love classic ginerbread cookies(not cutouts).I also tasted some chocolate cookies with those little Andes mints baking bits and they were really good. Let me know if you want any of these recipes. The coconut oatmeal choc. chip is on my blog if you're interested in that one.

These are Alex's favorite. My new sister-in-law requested them for the Thanksgiving we did at her parents' house so I made them. Adisyn unwrapped the chocolates and put them in the cookies when they were done. Kept her quite busy as I'd tripled the batch!

Peanut Butter Temptations
½ c. butter
½ c. peanut butter
½ c. brown sugar
½ c. sugar
1 egg
½ tsp. vanilla
1¼ c. flour
¾ tsp. soda
½ tsp. salt

1- 9oz package of mini peanut butter cups (or Hershey’s kisses)

Cream butter, peanut butter, and both sugars together. Beat in egg and vanilla. Sift together: flour, baking soda and salt. Blend into creamed mixture. Shape into 1” balls and bake in ungreased 1½“ muffin tins. Bake for 8-10 minutes at 375 degrees. Right from oven, press peanut butter cup into center of cookie. Let cool 10 minutes before removing from pan.

Makes about 3 dozen.

Girl...these cookies are the best.

Bark chocolate
tablespoon of crisco
peppermint oil
melt in bowl in microwave til liquid

Dip ritz crackers in the chocolate goodness until the cracker is covered. Dry on wax paper. YUM

They taste like Girl scout Thin mints only not as rich because you use a cracker instead of a chocolate cookie:)

Try them...so good for real.

I have to tell the truth, I am not a really good cookie maker. I usually find all my cookie recipes at tastofhome.com. In fact I need to start searching for cookies for Trey's Christmas party.
Good Luck!

How fun! I'm actually hosting a cookie exchange in a few weeks. I've never even attended one yet! I'm making red velvet shortbread cookies. Not as easy as some cookies, but not super hard, either. http://www.bhg.com/recipe/cookies/red-velvet-shortbread-cookies/ I am going to tweak it a little bit, though. This Friday is National Cookie Day, after all! :)

How fun - I love cookie exchanges! I used to have a whole cookbook of Christmas cookie recipes but I lent it out to someone and never got it back. Have you ever made the cookies that look like mice? It is always a huge hit. Or I love making the cookies that are shaped like candy canes. It is basically sugar cookie dough. Then you divide the dough in half, color one half red and then roll out two equal portions of dough for each cookie and then twist them together and sprinkle crushed candy canes over them before you bake them. They are very festive. Have a great time at your exchange!

This recipe is soooo easy an d so yummy!!

Graham Wafer Toffees

24 graham crackers
1 cup dark brown sugar
1 cup butter
1 cup chopped pecans

Place graham crackers on a cookie sheet with edges. Place a second layer of graham crackers on top.

Boil the brown sugar and butter for 2 minutes then pour over crackers. Sprinkle the nuts all over the top and pop into a 325 degree oven for 10 mins. Let cool before cutting.

Just make sure you have extra ingredients, because after you make these 2 things could happen...
you'll eat the batch you just made or you'll taste the batch you just made and show great self restraint and need to make another batch for the family immediately.
