I just posted 2 real simple ones on another thread.

Quick Pumpkin Cookies.
1 box Spice Cake Mix
1-15oz can of pure pumkin
Mix the 2 together and drop by teaspoon on greased baking sheet
I use parchment paper instead of greasing, they come out great.
Moist and soft cookie

Oreo Truffles
1 pkg oreos crushed
1-8oz pkg cream cheese softened.
mix together and for into small balls (there are rich)
dip into melted chocolate

I have use different chocolate chips for the melting of the chocolate, like rasberry flavor,
mint, peanut butter

Letscook - I actually have the oreo truffles bookmarked on the recipe site I like. And I just found the pumpkin cookies on here yesterday! Thanks for reminding me about them though, they both sound great.

Merstar - thanks SO much for posting those recipes. I'll definitely try them sometime, even if it doesn't end up being this weekend (I hope it will though!)

Here is a recipe that I made by accident and it came out simply wonderful. We've all made chocolate no-bake cookies. Well these are vanilla/coconut no-bake cookies. Here's the recipe.

Vanilla/Coconut No-Bake Cookies:
3 egg yolks
1 c. sugar
1 c. chopped pecans

1-1/3 c. coconut
1 c. chopped nuts
1/2 c. butter
1 tsp. vanilla


Melt the butter over low heat. Combine the remaining ingredients in a large mixing bowl. Add to the butter and cook until everything begins to bubble. Stir constantly. Remove from heat and drop by tablespoon-fulls onto waxed paper and let cool. Enjoy.

I've decided!

I'm making the lemon cookies I mentioned finding and the chocolate cherry cookies posted by Andy M. My boyfriend and I looked through this thread together and agreed that those would go over well.

Thanks to everyone who replied! I know I'll get a chance to try everyone's recipes soon. I'll post back here with how everything comes out. :)

1 C Butter, softened
1 1/4 C Sugar
2 Eggs
1 tsp Almond Extract
1 C Cherry Pie Filling
1 C Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips
1 C Walnuts - coarsely chopped

Preheat the oven to 375 F.

Combine the flour, baking soda and salt in a small mixing bowl.

In a large mixing bowl, combine the butter and sugar until lightly fluffy, about one minute.

Add the eggs one at a time and beat for 30 seconds after each addition. Add the almond extract and continue to beat until well blended. About 20 seconds.

Add the dry ingredients a quarter at a time, beating after each addition until well mixed, about 40 seconds.

Add the pie filling, chips and nuts. Mix until just blended.

Drop the dough in rounded teaspoonfuls onto an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake until lightly browned, 9-11 minutes.

Cool for 2 minutes on the baking sheet then remove to a wire rack.

Ok, here's the verdict: These cookies would've been awesome if I did them right.

I had a little problem with time. I had planned to make my cookies the morning before our get-together, but things ended up busier than planned so I was left with only an hour and a half to throw a recipe together. Making the dough was quick and very simple - no problems there.

I wish I could've chilled it a little longer before I had to start baking. It seemed the first two batches were rather flat because they were spreading too quickly.

Then there was the issue of cooling them on the sheet enough to move them to a wire rack. I cooked them for 10 minutes so that they were lightly golden around the edges but still soft. In retrospect maybe I should've done 11? Anyway, I didn't have time to let them cool for ages so I moved them before they had properly set.

The other problem I ran into was transporting them. Some were still pretty warm when I put them into their tupperware containers, so of course they sort of melted to each other on the drive there. If I'd had more time, I doubt this would have been a problem.

Now, on to the good stuff!

The taste was awesome. Everyone at this get-together seemed to like eating them despite their sort of messy appearance. I'll even admit tasting the batter when it "accidentally" got on my thumb - it reminded me of cherry vanilla ice cream or something. Yummy! And as I said before, the dough was really simple to assemble.

I will definitely be making these again in the future, except I'll leave enough time to do the recipe justice.

Thanks Andy!
