I've already made several of these recipes and not a bad one in the bunch! Cheesecake cookies - very yummy and totally easy! And there was a spice cutout cookie here - also quite good and easy. (Put a lemon-flavored glaze on those and it was perfect).

Let's keep up the recipes; it's already made my holiday baking a lot easier!

Thank you one and all,

Odessa
The Client doesn't generally understand the creative process we go through to make them a gorgeous confection ... it really IS more than "just" butter, eggs, and flour!

How about Praline Bars. Easy and very quick to make.
Preheat oven to 350.
1 package graham crackers broken into squares and lined into a jelly roll pan.

On stove melt 1 stick margarine and a half cup of brown sugar. Bring to a boil and boil for one minute. Pour over graham crakers.

Sprinkle with chopped pecans or any other nut.

Bake for 8 - 10 minutes. Remove and let cool very slightly (less than a minute). Transfer cookies to cooling rack.

NOTE: If you leave the cookies on the sheet to cool and longer they will stick to the pan and you will have a very hard time getting them out.

They are also better the second day as the carmel soaks into the graham crackers.

Ok, these aren't quite cookies but they are AMAZING!

My mom used to make these around Christmas time when I was younger and I forgot how good they are.

1 Cup of Brown Sugar
1 Cup of Corn Syrup
1 Cup of Peanut Butter
3 Cups of Rice Krispies
1 Cup of Peanuts (salted, non-salted, any nut really...)

In a saucepan bring to a gentle boil the Brown Sugar, Corn Syrup and Peanut Butter.
Pour over Rice Krispies and Nuts and mix well.
Shape in to balls and dip in chocolate.

I make them without nuts.
When I was a kid mom would make them in advance and freeze. When she was ready to use she dipped them in chocolate before serving. I would just eat them frozen - they were my favorite after-school snack!

These are not a cookie but more of a square.

Skore Squares
I box of plain Ritz crackers
1 pkg Skore bits
1 can Eagle brand sweetened condensed milk
1 batch of Buttercream or Creamcheese icing

You crush up the crackers into fine crumbs and add your Skore toffee bits and milk. You mush it all together and press it into a square pan or caserole dish (well greased) Bake for 10-15 min at 350. Let cool then frost and sprinkle with extra skore bits.

These are to die for and are highly addictive.[/b]

I just made the cheesecake cookies and they are greatest, not only really, really good but super easy to make.

Does anyone know if the Oreo Truffles need to be refrigerated since they have cream cheese in them? I am wanting to make some to go in cookie baskets, but didn't know if they would be ruined by sitting out.

Yes, they do need to be refrigerated. I never worry about them being out on a goodie plate for a while, but for storage, the fridge is best.
