Let's do a Christmas Cookie recipe exchange? - Page 6

I have now tried the Pecan Pie Cookie Recipe and the Cinnamon Cream Cheese Pinwheels. They are both great recipes and passed the taste test from the male members of my family icon_smile.gif. I made a cinnamon roll type glaze of powder sugar, vanilla, butter and milk and drizzled over the cinnamon pinwheels while they were still warm and changed the name to Cinnamon Roll Cookies. I plan on printing all of these recipes and adding them to my collection and hope to give each one a try. Thanks to everyone for sharing their favs.

I made the Oreo Truffles this weekend too. I got rave reviews. They are really simple and sooooo yummy! Everyone was telling me I need to go into business making cakes, cookies and candy. I was like, "Well, Duh! What do you think my dream is?!"

It's on page 2 of this thread but I went ahead and submitted it to recipes . I put it under cookies though it probably needs to be under candy. Just didn't see a category for candy.

OK, these sound strange but they are just great. I got this recipe from my Mother-n-Law and now they are a Holiday tradition. After getting this recipe I have found may variations of this recipe floating around. I normally pack them in tins and give away as gifts during the holidays. The mixture of sweet toffee with the salty crackers is so good! I'd recommend using a really good chocolate.

Because I have some family members that are allergic to pecans, I have used toasted hazelnuts and they just loved them. Don't expect them to "break" along the shapes of the crackers. They break into various shapes, but still look very nice. Since I have made these many times I normally use a 9x13 pan. One more thing I have tried this with 1 cup milk chocolate chips and 1 cup semisweet chips but the recipe listed below was what was passed down from my Mother-n-Law.

Enjoy icon_smile.gif

Saltine Toffee Cookies

INGREDIENTS:
* 4 ounces saltine crackers
* 1 cup butter (2 sticks)
* 1 cup dark brown sugar
* 2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
* 3/4 cup chopped pecans or your favorite nuts


DIRECTIONS:
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (205 degrees C).

** Line cookie sheet with parchment paper or non stick aluminum foil and then place the saltine crackers in single layer over the parchment paper or foil.

** In a saucepan combine the sugar and the butter. Bring to a boil and boil for 3 minutes. Immediately pour over saltines and spread them to cover the crackers completely.

** Bake at 400 degrees F (205 degrees C) for 5 to 6 minutes. Remove from oven and sprinkle chocolate chips over the top. Let sit for 5 minutes. Spread melted chocolate and top with chopped nuts. Cool completely and break into pieces.

After reading this thread I decided to make a batch for my husband to take to work and they are still good as I remember. I will start this weekend making them and other goodies for family and friends for holiday gifts. If you have never tried them you have to give them a try thumbs_up.gif .

Saltine Toffee Cookies



I have used this same recipe for about 10 years, except I use graham crackers and we call the praline cookies. I use sliced almonds as the nuts.

Moms Pan Dulce ( sweet bread) recipie.

INGREDIENTS:
1 tablespoon or one package dry yeast
1 tablespoon sugar
1/2 cup lukewarm water
3 1/2 cups flour
1 teaspoon salt
1/3 cup sugar
2 tablespoons vegetable shortening
4 eggs, beaten and at room temperature

PREPARATION:
1. Mix 1 tablespoon of sugar and yeast into lukewarm water. Let it rest for about 10 minutes.

2. In a large mixing bowl, cream shortening and sugar. Slowly add in eggs, salt, and the yeast in the water.

3. Add flour in, 1 cup at a time until incorporated. Cover with a towel and let it rise of 45 minutes in a warm place.

4. Take dough and divide into 15 pieces and shape in to balls. Place on a baking sheet with room for it to rise, about 2 or 3 inches away, press lightly to fatten a little bit and let the dough rise for 1 hour.

5. With your hands, divide the topping (below) into 15 pieces. Roll each piece into a ball and roll it out on a floured surface until it is large enough to cover each piece of dough, about 5 inches long. Lightly press topping onto dough and use a knife to cut a patern into the topping, but not into the bread!! It will taste and look funny if you do.

6. You can do something likes lines across the top or make little Christmas tree figures; but if you chose not to make a pattern the bread will make one for its self wich is very interesting. icon_biggrin.gif
Bake at 350 degrees for about 15 minutes or until bread is lightly golden. Take out of the oven and sprinkle sugar or cinnamon!! Very good with Hot cocoa

TOPPING:
1/2 cup shortening
1/2 cup powdered sugar
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 cup flour
3 teaspoons vanilla extract
You can add food coloring also.

1. Cream all ingredients together.

This is a very good bread recipie, its very popular in my family for the holydays...[size=9]

This is a ecipe I got from Woman's Day a few years ago. I finally made them today and they are really good.

Spice-Cookie Snowmen

3 sticks of sunsalted butter, softened
1 cup sugar
1 large egg
1 tsp vanilla
1 1/2 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp ginger
1/2 tsp each allspice and cloves
1/4 tsp salt
4 cups all purpose flour

Beat butter and sugar in a large mixer bowl on low till fluffy. Beat in egg, vanilla,spices and salt.
On low sped, beat in flour until just blended.

Gather dough together and shape and divide in thirds. Shape each into a 1 inch thick disk and wrap separately. Chill 1 hr or till firm.

Heat oven to 375. I rolled between parment to 1/4 inch thickness. Cut into snowman shapes and bake for 8-10 mins. until edges and bottoms are just browned. Cool on pan for 2 minutes and transfer to cooling rack to completely cool.

Decorate with royal icing or with icing of choice.

These cookies have a wonderful flavor and my house smells so good. These are a great alternative to regular sugar cookies. They are like a spiced shortbread cookie.

Very fast and easy...

Peanut Butter Cookies

1 cup peanut butter
1 cup sugar (can substitute Splenda)
1 Egg

Mix well. Bake at 350 degrees for 10-12 mins. Cool in pan 1 min. then place on cooling racks to cool.

A friend of mine gave this recipe to me several years ago. Then, I saw Paula Deen make them using Splenda. They disappear fast.

Really good for people on the low carb diets, when Splenda is used.

LOL...depends on how many you eat, I guess. But, on Atkins, they are legal. Peanut Butter does have some carbs so they're not carb-less. And, they do contain alot of fat and calories.

I have lost 90 pounds in the past year and this recipe is one I used to satisfy my cookie cravings!
