    Have you made them already and what do you plan on making? I like to cook but not as good at baking so I won't do it from scratch so its the Nestle cookie dough already made for me. Im jonesing for them now and plan to head out and get some and bake them tonight. Best just after they cool coming out of the oven nice and soft.

    Dude, you ARE the cookie! I can't imagine anything hotter than you coming out of an oven.

    No cookies here but I did just eat a slice of hot homemade apple pie al a mode. It was yummy.

    Good Luck with the cookies. And I agree with Barrie - you are one hot home slice.

    Chewy~everlasting soft Macadamia and Oatmeal Raisin, from scratch, down to everything really. This is most certainly having an incorrigible impact on other venues of Seasonal "Things to Do" Hahaha

    I am! Homemade chocolate chip, double chocolate chip and some vanilla cut out cookies. I make up little gift bags for my friends for Christmas. Brownies are going in this year's bags too.

    Love to do that for them and I have yet to get a bag back!

    Actually sounds like a good idea. Perhaps Almond Cupcake, German Chocolate, and Candy Cane cookies.

    ill be making fudge and pecan pralines, french great grandmother's recipes - the fudge is with semisweet chocolate so its not too sugary and it comes out very dry which is good because it melts in your mouth, not chewy like most fudge.

    the pralines take a lot of work and time and probably wont turn out...when they do though - heavenly.


    These will be enjoyed over many gin and tonics with my friends coming home from England on Saturday!

    i love grown up christmas icon_biggrin.gif

    I make a mean chocolate chip from scratch!

    I used the urban myth cookie recipe, which is either the Gimbles or Saks or whichever? It's google-able.

    The key is the tiny bit of espresso powder in the mix.

    I made those Jam Thumbprint cookies following Ina Garten recipe, and everyone asked for the recipe. I made those 3 times this month for parties and friends.

    Mmmm, I really miss my grandma's peppermint ammonium cookies at Christmas. Yes, they are made of AMMONIUM, and they are soooo good!!! Apparently the poison bakes off...

    I'll just eat the florentines and gingerbread I bought the other day.

    Yup! and here is my recipe!

    INGREDIENTS: 1 stick butter, unsalted, cold, cut into chunks
    1 cup sugar
    1 cup brown sugar
    1 large egg, cold
    1 tsp. vanilla extract
    1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
    1/4 tsp. sea salt
    1/2 tsp. baking powder
    1/4 tsp. baking soda
    8 oz. chocolate, chopped
    1/2 cup toasted whole walnuts

    DIRECTIONS: In medium bowl of electric mixer, beat the butter and sugars on a medium-low speed till well blended but not fluffy. Add the egg and flavoring and beat again on medium-low till well combined. Do not overbeat, as overbeating creates air bubbles which then deflate the cookie. Add the flour, salt, baking powder and baking soda and mix on slowest speed till just combined. Dough should not be too sticky nor too dry. It should be a stiff dough. Add the whole nuts and chocolate to the dough and let the mixer blend them in, at the same time crunching the walnuts. This will leave some nice big pieces of walnuts, giving the cookie that rustic, lumpy look. Chill the dough thoroughly, at least 2 hours, and preferably overnight.

    When ready to bake, preheat oven to 375F with oven rack in center position. Line 2 large cookie sheets with parchment paper.Measure out 6oz lumps. I used my ice cream scoop for nice rounded scoops of dough and I have no idea what they weighed, but I'm guessing they were 2 oz. Personally, I don't want cookies any bigger than that, but if you have a scale and you like huge monster cookies, go for the 4 or 6 oz. I got 12 cookies out of this batch of dough. Probably the first batch was under 2 oz. and the second batch was over 2 oz. because I had no scale and I was just guessing. (The 2nd batch had some dough left over which I divided among the remaining 6 cookies.) There is much wisdom in owning and using kitchen scales.

    Bake the cookies about 8 minutes, then without opening oven door, turn the heat down to 350F and bake for another 7-10 minutes, or till almost set. The cookies will continue to cook after they are removed from the oven. Better to underbake than overbake. You can also bake them at 350F for the whole time (15-20 minutes). Remove cookie sheet to rack to cool in pan for about 5 minutes, then transfer to wire rack to finish cooling.

    Got Daddy Santa on my ass to make his favorite cookies, which are sugar cookies. Here's the recipe.

    Ingredients
    2 3/4 cups all-purpose flour 1 teaspoon baking soda 1/2 teaspoon baking powder 1 cup butter, softened 1 1/2 cups white sugar 1 egg 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
    Directions
    Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). In a small bowl, stir together flour, baking soda, and baking powder. Set aside.
    In a large bowl, cream together the butter and sugar until smooth. Beat in egg and vanilla. Gradually blend in the dry ingredients. Roll rounded teaspoonfuls of dough into balls, and place onto ungreased cookie sheets.
    Bake 8 to 10 minutes in the preheated oven, or until golden. Let stand on cookie sheet two minutes before removing to cool on wire racks.

    The secret is to refrigerate the dough over night. It makes them so much better. And don't forget to use parchment paper on the cookie sheets when baking. Prevents burning.
