Remember, presentation is everything! If you have the time and/or willfulness to do this:

1) Melt some chocolate, and dip half of a cookie into the chocolate. Lay the dipped cookie on waxed paper to cool. If you have several different kinds of cookies, try milk, dark, and white chocolates.
2) Instead of dipping some cookies, fill a bag and pipe some chocolate onto them. You can also drizzle the chocolate with a spoon or fork. This works really good with Biscotti.
3) If you do Peanut Butter cookies, melt some chocolate, coat the underside of one cookie, and sandwich another cookie onto the chocolate. Allow to set.
4) If you do some kind of chocolate cookie, melt some white chocolate and sandwich them like the peanut butter cookies.
5) Mexican Wedding Cookies! You don't see those very often.
6) I already mentioned it, but Biscotti!

Sorry I don't really have any recipes for you. I don't bake cookies often enough to have any TNT recipes for you.

Oh, and any "stuffy" little old ladies that don't think men belong in a kitchen are more than welcome to come to my job, put on some Chef's Whites, and try to keep up with me :)

I make the same recipe but omit raisins and instead add toasted nuts, coconut, dried cherries or cranberries, some chopped dried apricot I add enough of all so it is just held together by the dough. If you want to go over the top add some mini semi sweet choc chips or toffee chips. I always get rave reviews on these cookies.In fact while you are at it and really want to show the women up make several kinds of cookies and present them arranged on a large pretty platter. That ought to shut her up expect her to not believe you made them. If she says something to that, offer her the recipes and offer to give her a lesson on how to make them. Mexican Wedding cookies are also really great, a little tricky to make but well worth it.

Oh yeh. What happened? Did you poop out. Did you eat them all before you got there?


(that reminds me of another thread we never heard back - the outside camping/washing dishes)

I hear he done good, real good, but that's all I know and we will all need to be patient and wait for the King of Cookies to give us the details!

First, let me paint a picture of myself. I'm 6'1", about 215#. I haven't cut my hair since the fall of 1996. Oh yeah, and I've grown a set of "chops" (sideburns) that Elvis himself would envy. The only shoes I own are Converse all-stars (canvas Chucks), and unless its well below zero, I always wear shorts.

The first thing the kindly old lady asked was "will your wife be making the cookies?" and when I said no, I'd be doing it, she rolled her eyes, and handed me a set of guidelines. As I walked away, she mentioned that there are some "very nice cookies" available at the local supermarket!!!!

Now. I'm no chef, but I do make some pretty good cookies!! What I'm looking for, is a recipe for a cookie (or bar) that will make her eat her words. Something a little different, but the "one" that will have them all talking. I don't care about the degree of difficulty-I'll throw away a hundred batches just to make a point (I'm hard headed that way)

So, my fellow DC'ers-any suggestions??? I've got a week!!!
yep, but it'll involve that phone call
