  • Here's a no bake cookie everybody I know loves. You know those super expensive Mint Chocolate Girl Scout Cookies???

    1 - package of Chocolate Almond Bark ( found on the flour isle at Walmart near the semi-sweet chips)
    1 - box of ritz crackers (yes, this is the cookie, TRUST ME!)
    1 - bottle of peppermint extract.
    wax paper
    cotton balls

    Melt your chocolate in a microwave safe bowl according to directions on package. (Be careful not to scorch.) Dip the crackers in chocolate and allow to dry on the wax paper. Once fully dry, place all cookies in a plastic sealable dish. (An old ice cream tub will do.) Depending on the amount of cookies you make, soak 2-4 cotton balls with peppermint extract and place the cotton in the container with the cookies. Close the lid and let stand overnight. If the cotton balls touch the cookies, it will change the dark color of the chocolate, but they are not hurt.

  • Snickerdoodles
    2 cups all-purpose flour (I use whole wheat pastry flour)
    2 tsps cream of tartar
    1 tsp baking soda
    1/4 tsp salt
    1 cup (8 ounces) unsalted butter, softened
    1 1/2 cups sugar
    2 large eggs
    1/4 cup sugar
    4 tsps cinnamon
    preheat oven to 350 degrees. combine the 1/4 cup sugar and 4 teaspoons cinnamon in a bowl and set aside. in another bowl, sift together flour, cream of tartar, baking soda, and salt. set aside. using an electric mixer, beat the butter and 1 1/2 cups sugar together until well blended and fluffy. add the eggs and continue beating until well blended and smooth. beat flour mixture into butter mixture until smoothly incorporated. pull off pieces of the dough and roll between the palms to form generous 1 1/4-inch balls.

  • cont.
    roll the mixture in the sugar and cinnamon mixture and place on
    cookie sheets, about 3 inches apart. bake, 1 pan at a time, in the upper third of the oven for 8 to 11 minutes, or until cookies are light golden
    brown around the edges. rotate cookie sheet halfway through baking for even browning. transfer sheets to wire racks and let stand until cookies firm up slightly, 1 to 2 minutes. then transfer the cookies to wire racks and cool thoroughly. cool cookie sheets between batches or cookies may spread too much. store cookies in an airtight container for 10 days or
    freeze for up to 1 month.
