    Greetings, it's cookie time of the year. For a competition on another forum, I entered this recipe. This is the best cookie I have ever had.. and many others that have tried it, proclaim it the best cookie that they've had.

    Enjoy!

    Chocotoffmealcherry Cookies -

    The Ingredients:

    [​IMG]

    The how-to:

    I begin preparing the ingredients by chopping the chocolate with a knife.

    [​IMG]

    Sift the flour and baking soda and set aside.

    Using the paddle attachment on your electric mixer, cream the butter and sugar.

    [​IMG]

    On medium-high speed it takes 2-3 minutes to get the mixture light and fluffy. Scrape the bowl once or twice during mixing.

    [​IMG]

    Add the egg and mix on high speed to combine.
    Add the vanilla extract:

    [​IMG]

    Scrape the sides of the bowl.

    Add the sifted flour mixture a bit at a time on low speed until well combined.

    [​IMG]

    Add the Oatmeal, cherries, toffee and chocolate.

    [​IMG]

    Divide the dough into 3 portions and roll into ~1 1/2 inch-diameter logs using parchment paper.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Put your logs into the refridgerator for an hour or so.

    Preheat your oven to 350 F.
    [​IMG]

    Remove your logs from the icebox and cut it into ~3/4 inch pieces.

    [​IMG]

    Place dough on parchment paper lined baking sheets.

    [​IMG]

    After baking a few batches I believe that they are perfect when the cookies look almost done. It takes from 10-12 minutes and in our current oven it's 12 minutes. The cookies continue to brown a bit once they cool.

    [​IMG]

    Once you remove them from the oven, immediately transfer to a cooling rack.

    All that's left to do is enjoy!

    Snowflakes

    This is an old cookie recipe I got out of my grandmother's cookbooks, dating back to the 1940's. It calls for a cookie press, so you can make dozens of perfect little cookies! I have a cookie press with plates of Christmas trees, wreaths and snowflakes, so it’s always been my holiday cookie of choice. This dough is almost white in color, and accepts food coloring well, if desired.

    Ingredients:
    2.5 C sifted flour (all-purpose)
    ½ tsp. salt
    ½ tsp. cinnamon
    1 C butter (or ½ butter ½ margarine, if you must), room temperature
    1 3 oz. package cream cheese, room temperature
    1 C sugar
    1 unbeaten egg yolk
    1 tsp. orange rind
    1 tsp. vanilla

    Red, green sugar crystals or any other cookie decorative bits

    Grease cookie sheets. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

    Combine sifted flour with salt, cinnamon – then sift again. In large mixing bowl, with large spoon, cream the butter and cheese until smooth. Add sugar until well blended. Beat in egg yolk, vanilla and orange rind. Then gradually add sifted dry ingredients, mix well.

    Pack dough into metal cookie press. Press cookies out onto greased cookie sheet, a few inches apart. Lightly press colored sugars or decorative candies onto cookies. Bake 15-18 minutes or until edges are light brown. Run spatula under cookies carefully and remove immediately onto wire rack to cool.

    I love baking! I'm gonna try out both!! :mrgreen: Maybe this weekend. I'll get my recipe on there later on.

    Who uses convection ovens? We have a gas convection oven. IT IS AMAZING! The chocolate chip cookies get perfectly brown on top and are so thick :drool:

    My favorite recipe for chocolate chip cookies is the one that comes on the back of the pack of nestle chips

    And my favorite one for oatmeal cookies is the one that comes on the underside of the lid of Quaker Oats

    :lol:

    Really... the're actually really good recipes... although I think I'm going to give vood's recipe a try
