    Either now, did, or will before Christmas and what kind are you making? I just got done making two dozen oatmeal butterscotch cookies from scratch...first time ever that I did not use the premade dough. Wow what a difference. They came out great, like them soft and chewy, already downed 3 but anymore will just keep me up all night

    I've made sugar cookies before. But it was premix. I have a crappy oven in my current place. So no baked goodies this year.

    my great aunt used to make those pizelles but she drowned them with powdered sugar

    rugelach...yeah my great aunt also made a variation of those things,....filled with some kind of nut

    problem is she is 97 and pretty much going senile so she no longer bakes which really sucks because my mom and my sister and any other female in the family really do not make the classics...my mom will make chocolate chip cookies but the old school stuff from Europe nobody makes anymore

    I've made a few batches of chocolate chip cookies from scratch in the last couple months. I use big chunks of dark chocolate and coconut oil instead of butter. Delicious!

    I need a good recipe for chocolate chip cookies...

    Not the ones that get really flat in the oven though, the ones that stay fat and are crispy on the outside and chewy on the inside...does that make sense? Can anyone halp? lol
