Cookiefest, what's your favo?

again, good morning...
this must have surely been done by now.
but if not, I'd love to print out recipes from you seasoned vets regarding your favorite cookies. In hopes of being able to make/bake/freeze/send for various holidays, could you send love via a recipe here of your favorite cookies oh please!

I'd start with my own but am not at home and don't have access to a recipe folder.
I will print out and try those that are chewy and stay that way, extra tender and/or special in flavor, pretty and/or make a nice presentation and/or any other reason they tantillize me. I am thanking you in advance because as you all know, Christmas IS coming and want to get a jump on things

These were a big hit when I made them for Christmas last year. They're nice and soft with great flavor:

Ricotta Cheese Cookies
1 c softened butter
2 c sugar
1-15 oz container ricotta cheese
1 T vanilla
1 t salt
1 t baking soda
4 c all purpose flour

glaze:
1 c powdered sugar
milk
sprinkles

Preheat oven to 350 F.

Mix all of the cookie ingredients well until the dough sticks together into a big ball. It will be sticky. Drop by teaspoonfulls on an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake 10 minutes or until the bottoms turn golden brown. Let cook for 1 minute and then transfer to wire racks to cool completely.

In a small saucepan slowly stir milk into powdered sugar until it creates a glaze thin enough to be spread over the cookies. Stir over low heat then spread over cookies. Quickly top with sprinkles.

Makes approx 36 cookies.

Pistachio, Cranberry and White Chocolate Biscotti

I love Biscotti's and this one is my favorite. The first time I made it my husband told me that he thought it came from a coffee or specialty shop.

2 cups of all purpose flour
1/4 cup of canola oil (yes no butter in this cookie)
2 eggs
1 cup of sugar
1 tsp of almond extract
2 tsp of vanilla extract
1 tsp of baking powder
1 pack of Nestle White chocolate chips
1 cup of craisins
1 cup of shelled pistachios (salted kind are fine)

In a bowl beat the sugar and oil until light and frothy. Next add the eggs and beat the mixture until light. Then add the extracts, baking powder and flour and stir to combine. Next stir in the craisins and pistachios.

The dough will be really sticky. Oil your hands and then divide the dough into two halves. At this point take the dough halves and place them on a cookie sheet that has a parchment or silpat lined on it. Shape the dough into logs.

Bake at 350 degrees for 20-30 minutes. Remove the dough and cut it into slices. Place it again on the cookie sheet and bake at 200 degrees for 30 minutes. Remove and cool completely.

Dissolve the white chocolate chips either in a microwave or a double boiler ( I like the later). Pour the white chocolate in a ziploc bag and drizzle over the biscottis. Allow to cool again for atleast an hour or until the chocolate hardens.

Dip them in coffee or tea and savour especially on a crisp fall weekend.

Middie, are the oats the "quick cooking" kind?

(Sure sounds delish!)
