The best cookies are... (Read 416 times)


Muddling through

    How can I tell which of these cookies are the best unless you all send me samples for taste testing? Better make that two samples of each since I may not be able to tell on first taste.

      Sorry George, I've sent cookies in the mail before and it doesn't work that wellSad. Walnut tarts however, can easily last a week in the mailBig grin.

      In the words of my late-coach : Just hang in there, relax... and at the end of a race anyone you see.....just pass them


      not lazy, just tired

        I am drooling into my coffee now. 

         

        I remember when I was a kid whenever I went to the bakery with my mother, they would give me a big rectangular hermit cookie. Pretty tasty, but my all time favorite cookies were my grandmother's chocolate chip cookies. They were fat (did not spread out flat) and had nuts in them and were oh so good. Unfortunately, my grandmother was a great cook who never followed or wrote down recipes. I have searched for chocolate chip cookies like hers my whole life (yes I'm a boring person) without luck.

        Sad

        Not if it makes sense.

          Oatmeal chocolate chip.  And don't try to fool me with those disgusting raisins.  Because I'll know.  And I'll kick you in the shins.

           

          Oatmeal chocolate chip cookies for the win. Now that you reminded me, I should make some today.

            I heard Mandy's cookies were the best.

             

            I have not confirmed because she has this rule that unless you FE, you won't get cookies....

             

            I hear she had a visitor and made cookies recently. Wait, maybe that counted as FE. I have not seen pictures, though.

              Sorry, Cris.  I don't think you'll get to see pictures.  He likes for people to think that he's actually furry and blue.

                    "C" is for cookie.  That's good enough for me.

                      Technically these aren't cookies, they are biscotti, but they were damn good.

                        That is easy.

                         

                        Any cookies that are handy.

                         

                        This thread is making me gain weight.  I'd better go for a long run....

                            Her website is my go-to for all things recipe-related. Amazing.

                             

                            ETA: They were delicious.

                              I'm not that into cookies. I prefer baklava.

                                I love homemade oatmeal raisin cookies - just the recipe from the Quaker Oats container. Also chocolate chip with toffee chips, so good. I never ever bake either of these anymore because it's just too much calories. Now maybe I'll go to The Buttery for one pecan sandy tomorrow, those are awesome!
