Cookie recipies that don't fail to please.

Well BSD it is that time of year again. Our beloved team is in bowl prep, the holidays are right around the corner and there is plenty of baking of cookies to be done. Jessedotsmom has requested that I post a few cookie recipes here so that all can enjoy them. So here are two recipes for rather simple cookies but are well worth the effort to make them. I have made these for several years now with my 90 year old grandmother, who to me is the best baker in the world and have offered to fight people over that claim.

The first one is called Snicker Surprise (not snicker doodle, which everyone asks when I tell them what it is) it is rather easy, just takes a little time to make them. Every time I make them, I am asked for the recipe, so here it is.

I only ever use real ingredients, so real sugar, real peanut butter, real butter (unsalted, so I can control the level of salt) never anything that is low or reduced. It’s a damn cookie enjoy it!!

What you will need:

2 Sticks butter

1 cup peanut butter smooth

1 cup light brown sugar

1 cup sugar

2 eggs

1 tsp vanilla

3 ½ cup sifted flour

1 tsp baking soda

½ tsp salt

Bite sized snickers

Cream Butter, sugars and peanut butter

Add egg and vanilla

Mix in flour, salt, baking soda

Once it is all mixed together thoroughly chill dough at least 2-3 hours. Do not skip this step, if you do the cookies will not bake properly.

Using bite sized snickers, or fun sized cut in half, cover the candy with dough, just enough dough to cover the chocolate, not too much. Also make sure that you do not see black since it will melt and run out of the cookie.

Bake 325 for 10-12 minutes, until the bottom is lightly brown. They will not look very brown when done, just check the bottom of the cookie, if they are brown they are done.

Makes about 6 dozen cookies. I have experimented with different candies, and Snickers and Milky Way work the best. Three Musketeers does not, it does not have enough texture to withstand the dough. Pretty much any candy that has some texture to it will work.

Double Crunchers

What you will need:

1 cup sifted flour 1 cup semi sweet chips

½ tsp baking soda ½ cup confectioners’ sugar

¼ tsp salt 1 tbs water

½ cup butter 3 oz cream cheese

½ cup sugar

½ cup brown sugar

1 egg

½ tsp vanilla

1 cup crushed corn flakes

1 cup oatmeal

½ cup coconut

Cream butter and sugars

Add egg and vanilla

Add flour, baking soda, and salt

Add cornflakes, oats and coconut

Roll the dough into a small ball and a large ball (the small cookie will sit on top of the large cookie) make them as big or small as you like, they will spread in the oven. I like to have 2 sizes of scoopers, one slightly larger than the other to make mine.

Bake 350 for 8 minutes.

Then in a double boiler, mix the chocolate chips, confectioner sugar water and cream cheese. Mix until all is melted together smoothly. I have found that you will need to add a bit of hot water little by little at times, but not too much.

Then add some of the chocolate to the larger cookie and top with a small cookie.
