Alternative flavors of cut-out cookies

post #1 of 19
Thread Starter 
I've been trying for the past few years to expand my cutout cookies from the traditional sugar type.

I've done:

--Chocolate
--Peanut butter
--Chocolate chip (minis)
--Oatmeal spice

Of those, I suppose I liked the oatmeal spice best, but the vanilla-almond flavored icing didn't work on them. Plus, the oats made for rough edges because the cookie cutter couldn't slice through them.

I still prefer NFSC with vanilla and a little almond flavoring. That's saying something because I'm a chocoholic,and will choose chocolate over vanilla whenever given a choice.

Anyone have any additional suggestions or favorite recipes? I don't have a picky palate, but I don't especially like most spiced cookies (gingerbread, pfeffernusse, pepparkakor, springerle).

How did the choc chip work out? Sounds a lot better than sugar cookies!

I've made chocolate, pumpkin spice, lemon, cherry, and mocha as cut-out cookies and liked them all...

I also substitute the vanilla for a variety of other flavorings in the regular NFSC recipe.

Bonnie would you be willing to share how you made those? I would love the chocolate, mocha and maybe a couple of the others....

Thanks!

Ditto the recipe request if you have them handy!

I have done:
citrus (both orange and lemon)
black pepper / spiced
maple
apple
pumpkin
chocoalte-cinnamon
gingerbread

The recipes came from a variety of different places, and sometimes I'd add little extras (like finely minced orange zest to the orange cookies) to what the recipe called for. I love experimenting!

Gen, I was sure they'd be great, too, but I was disappointed. I didn't keep the recipe, but it probably was something like this one:

http://www.meals.com/Recipes/Mini-Chip-Cut-out-Cookies.aspx?recipeid=29664

To me, it tasted like pie crust with a few mini choc chips thrown in. I suppose I was thinking it would taste more like a 'traditional' choc chip cookie. There's got to be some tweaking that will make them better....

I think I'll try eggnog cookies next. If you've made them, let me know your thoughts.

Here's one recipe, from a super website:

dawncr - eggnog... that sounds very interesting! Please let us know how they turn out!

I don't have the recipes right in front of me, but I can tell you they were easy substitutions. Here are a few things right off the top of my head. ...

Mocha -- I know I used the recipe for mocha cookies from the kitchengifts.com website.

Lemon - I added grated lemon zest to my regular vanilla recipe I use and lemon juice instead of the extract.

Cherry - I used maraschino cherry juice in place of the extract in my regular vanilla recipe.

Chocolate - there are few good ones in the recipe section here, but I still haven't found one that I LOVE.

Pumpkin spice - I added pumpkin pie spice to my regular vanilla recipe, and a few tablespoons of pumpkin puree instead of about 1/4 cup of the butter.

hmm.... apple and maple sound so good! Would you mind sharing those recipes?

Thanks, Bonnie. I will have to try the cherry ones!

The maple cookies are from Emeril:

The apple one was a vegan recipe made with applesauce, oil, nutmeg, and cinnamon. There was an apple cider-based glaze, too.

The eggnog ones sound great for Christmas!

I think I also saw a recipe for a butterscotch flavored roll-out cookie, also. Never tried that one, though.

Ooh, these sound really good! I love eggnog so I'm dying to try these when I see eggnog on my grocery store shelves.

I really like the white chocolate cutout recipe from Karen's Cookies.
