Ingredients may be harder to come by closer to the holiday season this year, and I plan on getting all of mine purchased this month - so I have to decide on what cookies I will be making.


So, I thought we would kick off this thread early and share our recipes with each other so we can all have our game plans and grocery lists ready. :)

I never thought about ingredients being hard to get. Now you've got me thinking too!

Oh good idea to think ahead. I already have some of the Betty Crocker pouch cookie mix, sugar and chocolate chip, as I bought some during the early summer thinking while I was home I'd be all baking-motherly and makes lots of cookies. Yeah... I also still have ingredients for Nestlé Tollhouse cookies. So we'll have those simple cookies for sure.

My major dessert I make is buckeyes. I have a couple bags of powdered sugar already, but better grab some more in case.

And something I made a couple years ago and ended up being a big hit with the youngest was cool whip cookies. So those are now a must. He doesn't eat buckeyes, so this gives him another thing to eat.

That's probably enough. But I actually have a surplus of flour (Kroger: all purpose flour isn't the same as bread flour!), so I should try and find one more thing that requires that. Maybe spritz cookies.

The only cookies I make are basic sugar cookies with buttercream icing.  I make several chocolate candies (peanut clusters, turtles, cordial cherries, peanut butter cups, peanut butter crunch, billionaires).  I have started buying the ingredients. I order the chocolate and caramel, so that came in last week. I need about 12 more bags of powdered sugar, and a few more things.  


Here's my cookie recipe:

Oh I always love this form. My family always thinks I came up with a special recipe but when I tell them it was from a friend they always think I am being modest. I truly be like....IT IS NOT MINE, but have to say I do love the attention. So come on down with MY NEW recipe.

I always make these for one of my best friends. He loves them. Not really holiday cookies specifically, but he gets a full batch to himself in his Christmas box every year.

I juice & zest the lemon myself, so about as truly from scratch as it gets.

Edits I’ve made to recipe as written:
- Double the amount called for of lemon juice & lemon zest
- I roll them in granulated sugar instead of powdered for some sparkle. (I’ve been known to mix yellow sugar crystals with the plain white sugar as well)


For those curious: Kitty in my pic is current furbaby, Mew, curled up in a box far too small for her. Ha! "If I fits, I sleeps!"


NASCAR fan (particularly JGR pit crews - many friends there), diehard UM Wolverine fan, animal lover, car girl, cookie baker, singer, bargain hunter. Yep. That about covers it. lol :cool:

I'm kinda bummed, most likely will not be baking cookies this year since we still are not going into the office, and everyone is still hesitant about sharing food from non-close family members.
