Ongoing Cookie Quest

Filed under: Real Good Food — by InterstellarLass @ 10:01 am

So far Leanne from Artist By Nature has shared her yummy-sounding Egg Nog cookies! I was also pointed toward some Dirty Snowballs, a family recipe from MichaelM at Smoke & Mirrors. Coyote Mike also gave me a recipe for meat pies. They sound…interesting. But I don’t know about mixing my meat with raisins and dried fruits. Throw some carrots and peas in there though, and then you’ve got something. Rather like Shepherd’s Pie in a convenient carry-all crust.

Nancy suggested the peanut butter kisses cookies, which I love. I do have the recipe and have made them several times before, including for the first cookie exchange I went to. KaraMia has pointed me to Iced Pumpkin Cookies. I actually have a slight pumpkin phobia, but Zed will drool over these, so they will definitely be made.

Doing a little of my own research, I’ve found Black & White cookies, Chocolate Waffle cookies and Chocolate Espresso cookies. Hmmm. I’m starting to see a theme here. Martha Stewart’s Holiday Cookie Glossary also has a lot of possibilities. My problem is that I can’t choose! I want to make them all. Drown myself in cookies. That sounds like a good way to go, right?

Gypsy left me my 5,000th comment on my request for cookie recipes, and so she has won a batch of cookies. Any cookie she wants from any of the links above! She also has a post today with tons of good links, and had one for a food site that is making me hungry.

Help me pick a recipe, please! What sounds good?


  1. Cookies for me, cookies for me!! *clapping hands* Oh, such joy. I think I’m gonna have to go with the peanut butter kisses cookie. Yum!! Thanks so much, too. I can’t believe you’re doing this AND that I won. Mmmmmm… cookies.

  2. My mom would make the waffle cookies and they were kind of a pain in the butt (the waffle iron has to be just right, so the first few you put on there are grody) but they were soooo good – especially with some chocolate frosting.

  5. I have so many cookie recipes and would have to dig them out. I did see Paula Deen from the Food Network make some freaking awesome pecan something or others today. They had a shortbread crust of butter, sugar, flour and cream cheese with pecans on the top. Bake it, the cover it in whipped cream with pecans sprinkled through. Holy crap!!

  7. I’m pitching the dirty snowballs, they seem so unique. As for classic cookies, those chocolate lace cookies are to die for but take patience.

  8. Hmm- well, I just came by to catch up before running off to the zoo to learn about primate viruses and here’s all this delicious food! Cookies I haven’t gotten to yet. I usually do a gingerbread, a russian tea cake, an iced sugar cut out cookie, green and white merangues (sp!)and chocolate cookie press cookies. If time allows, raspberry thumbprints. All the usual. Whatever bking you do, enjoy! Tis the season for flour and sugar everywhere.

  9. By the time I’m done trying out everything here I’ll have to make a trip to Staples because I won’t be able to cram my fat ass in my current chair! 😉
    Thanks for the link, Lass.

  12. Ack! I forgot you were doing this, sorry! Have you decided yet? If not, check out my butter cookie post from yesterday because there are a LOT of good cookies on there, with pictures.
    Like the chocolate cherry ones, mmmm.

    Also, what about Can’t go wrong with their recipes. I’ve made a lot of paula dean and really, i’m lukewarm about her recipes. They always look great…in print. I’m sticking to tried and true!
