Cookie Day

It snowed like crazy yesterday and so I am inside and baking cookies today. I like a nice cookie with my morning cuppa, and nothing store bought is the same. When I bake, I figure I might as well make a day of it and make a boatload of varieties, since I use the same utensils, and will only have to clean up once.
Here's my planned bake-list
Oatmeal raisin chocolate chip walnut coconut cookies,  or the Kitchen Sink cookie.
Peanut Butter cookies. Peanut Butter Cookies
I reduce the amount of sugar in this recipe and use crunchy peanut butter. Forget the three hour wait in the frig, just squash and bake. Yummo.

Russian Tea cakes or Mexican Wedding Cakes. Same recipe, just different names. So buttery and melt in your mouth.
Cranberry, Orange and Pistachio Biscotti Cherry Almond Biscotti, (OK, I am substituting ingredients, but the rest is the same) which are hard and crunchy and dunkable. These are a recent addition to my standard list, but the ones I most want to make.
After all this baking I will be wiped out but satisfied.


  1. I make the Kitchen Sink cookie's for my DH. He loves a couple cookies in the morning with his coffee, too. The peanut butter ones are "scrummy" and melt in your mouth :) I don't refrig. them either.

  2. I do the same thing with my peanut butter cookies. You got lots accomplished! I was snowed in today and just managed Christmas pudding. It was an easy recipe too.

    Your cookies make me want to get up and start baking....but no, I'll get up and go exercise...

  4. Your cookies look yummy!!!! I wanted to let you know that I posted my quilt I made in your class, in Jacksonville, FL. I'd love to hear what you think. Hugs

  5. Ooh, can I come to your house for those peanut butter cookies? I just made my chocolate crinkles rolled in powdered sugar and I ate so many that I may have to do a second batch. Happy Baking!

  6. My DH is diabetic, so I limit my baking and use Spenda when I do. Trouble is... then I end up eating a lot of them, so he's relegated to buying store-bought for his stash which I can say no to. But yours look so yummy, I may have to try one of your recipes!

  7. It didn't snow over here on my side of the mountains, but I am the same way when it does! I gotta bake and put something in the crockpot! Do you think we're genetically wired to think, "Snow-cold, make hot food now?"
