Cookie Recipe Swap anyone?

My kids and I are going to bake cookies this afternoon. I'd like to make several dozen so I can freeze them (so we only need to bake once a week or so... it's SO hot when I have to run the oven - too bad my kids hate those "no-bake" cookies).

So, would anyone like to exchange cookie recipes?

(I'll post one of the one's we are making in the response section)

  • Here's my favorite oatmeal raisin cookie recipe. It's not puffy or cake-y, more like a chocolate chip cookie, crisp and chewy in one.

    Delicious Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

    * 1 c. sugar
    * 1 c. brown sugar
    * 1 c. margarine
    * 2 eggs
    * 1 tsp. vanilla
    * 2 cups flour
    * 1 tsp. baking soda
    * 1 tsp. salt
    * 1 c. raisins
    * 2 cups rolled oats (not instant or quick)


    Cream sugars and margarine in mixer bowl until light and fluffy. Beat in eggs and vanilla. Stir in flour, baking soda, and salt. Add raisins and oats; mix well. Chill, covered, overnight. Drop by teaspoonfuls onto cookie sheet. Bake at 350° for 10 to 12 minutes or until lightly golden. Cool on pan for a minute before removing.

    1/4 cup white sugar
    1 egg, beaten
    1 tsp vanilla extract
    1 cup flour
    1/4 cup cocoa
    1/2 tsp baking powder
    1/8 tsp salt
    1 cup white chocolate chips

    Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Beat the margarine and sugars until fluffy. Add the egg and vanilla and beat again.
    Sift the flour, cocoa, baking powder and salt together. Add to the margarine mixture and beat for 1-2 minutes. Pour in the white chocolate chips and stir until mixed.

    Drop by the tablespoon onto cookie sheets (lightly sprayed with non stick spray). Bake for 9-10 minutes. Let cool on the cookie sheet for 3 minutes before removing to wire rack to cool.

  • Chocolate Crinkles

    * 1 18 oz. box devil's food cake mix
    * 1/2 c. vegetable oil
    * 1 Tbsp. water
    * 2 eggs

    Mix all ingredients together until well blended. Chill 1 hour. Roll into balls and then roll in powdered sugar. Bake 8 - 10 minutes in a 375 degree oven.

    NOTE: I've substituted lemon cake mix for the devil's food for lemon crinkles and they turned out GREAT! Feel free to substitute other flavors!
