Cookie Recipes?
December 10, 2009 at 1:41 PM

Hi Ladies.

I know that there are so many of us on here that maybe someone might have a few good recipes for cookies. I want to make several types of cookies not just the standard chocolate chip cookies.

I have been searching the web and asked around in two of the groups I belong to for one particular cookie recipe. I want to make it because it was my kid sister's favorite cookie growing up and she will be coming to my house for Christmas.

The cookie recipe includes whole Spanish peanuts. It is the only thing I remember about the cookie.

Well hope you all are getting your Holiday Planning and Plans done. Happy Holidays!

    It was not a spice cookie but thank you I am going to add this one to my list of cookies to make. My husband loves cookies and any that have spices like the ones listed will win him over.

    Thank you for posting your recipe.

    Happy Holidays to you and yours!

    Red Velvet Cookies

    This red velvet cookie is so easy to make and is great to serve any time, but especially for holidays like Valentine's Day, Fourth of July, and Christmas. Serve them plain or with the cream cheese frosting.

    1 Box Duncan Hines Red Velvet Cake Mix

    2 eggs

    1/3 cup oil

    Mix all ingredients together. This will make a cookie dough. Roll into balls and place on a lightly greased cookie sheet. Flatten down slightly (depending on the thickness you desire). Bake at 375° until the tops crackle (about 8-10 minutes) or until desired doneness.

    Cool and then frost with basic...

    Cream Cheese Frosting

    1 8 ounce package cream cheese -- softened

    1/4 cup stick margarine or butter -- softened

    2 teaspoons milk

    1 teaspoon vanilla

    4 cups powdered sugar

    Beat cream cheese, margarine, milk and vanilla in medium bowl with electric mixer on low speed until smooth.

    Gradually beat in powdered sugar on low speed, 1 cup at a time, until smooth and spreadable. Frosts one 13 × 9-inch cake generously, or fills and frosts one 8- or 9-inch two-layer cake. Refrigerate any remaining frosting.

    Chocolate Cream Cheese Frosting: Add 2 ounces unsweetened baking chocolate, melted and cooled, with the margarine.
