  • My peanut butter cookie recipe is good too - I got it off the jar of peanut butter!
    1 cup of peanut butter, 1/2 cup of sugar, 1 egg, and I add a little bit of vanilla and about a tsp of honey.
    Preheat to 325, mis everything together, and bake for 15 minutes. That doesn't make a lot, so I'd double up, at least.

  • I would buy the cookie dough in tubes and then can add things like m and ms, chocolate chips, peanut butter chips, coconut, nuts. Then just follow recipe on package. Easy and can mix and match a lot of items. Same for brownies but can stir in peanut or nuts. Icing or top with marshmallow fluff. Happy baking

    1 Cream the butter and sugar on high speed for about 3 minutes.

    2 Separate the eggs. Add the yolks and vanilla extract to the butter mixture. If using nuts place the egg whites in a shallow dish on the side and whisk them until bubbly and frothy (the egg whites will be used to keep the nuts on the cookies).

    4 Roll the dough into balls about 1 inch in diameter. If using nuts

  • Palmiers (Elephant Ears) Recipe


    * Lots of granulated sugar
    * Puff pastry
    * Parchment Paper (aka baking paper) or a Silpat baking mat


    1 Preheat oven to 400°F. Sprinkle about 1/4 cup of sugar over your workstation. Roll out the puff pastry to about 10X12 inches. Sprinkle another 1/4 cup of sugar (and spices if using) over the dough.

    2 Roll up the left vertical side inward, stopping in the middle of the dough. Roll up the right side of the dough. The two rolls should be meeting at the middle and touching. Press the two sides together gently and let the dough chill in the fridge for at least half an hour. Repeat with any more puff pastry you may have.

    3 Starting at one end, cut off pieces of the log, in slices about 1/2 inch in thickness. Lightly sprinkle sugar onto each side. Pinch and press the sides of the two rolls together to ensure that they don't unroll d

  • A box of cake mix ( any flavor), 2 eggs and 1/3 cup of vegetable oil. Mix the dry cake mix with the other ingredients. Drop by teaspoonful onto a cookie sheet. My favorite is the yellow cake mix, but the lemon cake mix is good too!!

  • One of my fav cookie recipes uses townhouse crackers, peanut butter, & dipping chocolate. (I use the microwavable containers of Baker's dipping chocolate). Spread some peanut butter on a cracker & top it with another cracker. After your peanut butter crackers are made, dip each into chocoate, covering completely. Let them dry. It's quick. It's easy. And most people think you spent hours baking this "fancy cookie." LOL
