Look under the lid on the Quaker oats thing. Use that recipe but use golden raisins and McCormick's Saigon Cinnamon.

Yum.

These Chocolate Hazlenut Cookies have turned into a favorite around here for the holidays. They do take a little time, but they're well worth it. They're not cloyingly sweet and they store (and ship) very well.

My only change is to grind up some extra hazelnuts and roll the edge of cookie through them after the chocolate dip.

I made the "The Chew" chocolate, chocolate chip cookies with sea salt. The sea salt makes the whole flavor thing just pop in your mouth. I was so surprised.

*I forgot to note:
For the CHOCOLATE ESPRESSO CHEWS, there's a typo in the recipe. It should be 1 1/4 cups flour NOT 1/4 cup.

I wish I still had my "Joy of Cookies" cookbook, it was the first casualty when Shrek was told he was diabetic.

Chopper, just one question on this recipe. It calls for a "bag" of chocolate chips. I buy mine at Costco - do you think that would work?

Seriously, the cinnamon and ginger sound really good!

I suppose so. Would they be annoying to chew in a cookie?

I made these because my groshree store was giving the Nut-Trition away, free-fer-nuthin. I won't call it peanut butter because it has a whole lot of stuff other than peanuts and salt in it, but I figured it would be okay for cookies.


Planter's Nut-Trition Cookies

Ingredients:
  • 3 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 1 12oz jar of Planter's Nut-trition peanut spread
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • ½ cup (packed) brown sugar
  • ½ cup granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs
Instructions:

Preheat oven to 350°F and line 2 large baking sheets with parchment paper.
Sift flour, baking powder and salt into medium bowl. In a large bowl, beat butter, peanut spread and vanilla until well blended. Beat in both sugars. Scrape down sides of bowl. Stir half of dry ingredients into mixture. Add eggs 1 at a time, stirring well after each addition. Mix in remaining dry ingredients.

Roll heaping tablespoonsful of dough into balls and arrange 2 inches apart on prepared baking sheets. Using back of fork, flatten dough balls and form crosshatch design on tops. Bake cookies until dry on top and golden brown on bottom, about 14 minutes. Cool cookies on baking sheets 5 minutes then transfer to racks to cool completely.
