I haven't made cookies in well over a decade. But when I was a teenager, I loved BH&G peanut butter criss cross cookies. For one thing, the ingredients were always at hand. But also, they weren't all that sweet. So I made them often for my younger sibs when Mom wasn't well. They always turned out perfectly. A real fall back. Gee, maybe I should do it again!

Buy yourself a box of Quaker oatmeal. Inside the lid is a recipe for "Vanishing Oatmeal Cookies". Make them. They are fan-dam-tastic. I add raisins and walnuts.

I agree! Am no baker by any means, but these ARE fan-dam-tastic! ( thanks Andy!)

Nestle Toll House Chocolate chip cookie recipe. It's very versatile cookie dough. You can leave out the chips and add cinnamon and dehydrated apple, you can use butterscotch or caramel chips and add pecans, you can just use the chocolate chips or use chocolate chips and add almonds or walnuts. I've even just made the cookie dough and not put any kind of chips or anything in it. It's just so good. Oh, I bet it would be good with caramel pieces and dehydrated apple mixed in. Hmmm.

Timothy, you're an evil, evil man for starting this thread.

They are addictive! Can't just have one or 6 personally
I could eat a whole batch by myself

This recipe was one of my favorites when I was a young'un.
My mother's Aunt Louise used to make them.
The recipe originated from a package of Nestle's chocolate chips many years ago.
I have made some changes from the original handwriiten recipe.

Aunt Louise's Congo Squares Recipe

Ingredients:

1-1/2 sticks margarine (I use butter)
1 pound brown sugar
3 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 tablespoon hot water (I am not sure what this does for the recipe)
2-3/4 cups all purpose flour, sifted
2-1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
chopped walnuts (I generally leave this out or use pecans)
large package semi sweet chocolate chips

Combine all the ingredients and bake
for 30 minutes in a 9x13 pan at
350 degrees. Yields 24 bars

My all time favorite cookie recipe comes on the back of a package of Nestles Toll House bits. Was my favorite cookie when I was 6, still is.

Mom would spend a half day making these, I would pick the cookie sheet clean while still soft and warm, and spend the rest of the day being sick.

cookie, recipe

Your #1 favorite cookie recipe! This is for only the one cookie you make that is better (to you), than any other cookie you make. The best. Not "All mine are good" or "I have two favorites" or "You pick which of these 40 recipes". Just one. The best one of all the cookie recipes you know. A-to-Z, how do you make it? My mouth is already watering.....:chef::lol: 3 stars 1 reviews
