Winning Cookie Recipes!
Slice and Bake Butterscotch from Foggy
2 cups butter or margarine
1-1/3 cups granulated sugar
1-2/3 cups brown sugar, packed
1 TBSP. vanilla extract
5-1/2 all-purpose flour
2 tsp salt
2 tsp baking soda
2 cups butterscotch chips
1 cup chopped nuts, optional
Cut four 14"x12" pieces of waxed paper or plastic wrap and set aside. In a large bowl, cream the butter or margarine, granulated sugar, and brown sugar until smooth. Beat in eggs and vanilla until light an fluffy. In a medium bowl, combine flour, salt, and baking soda. Stir flour mixture into egg mixture until blended. Add butterscotch chips and nuts.
Divide the dough into 4 pieces. Shape each piece into an 8 to 10 inch roll. Wrap each roll in 1 piece of the waxed paper or plastic wrap. Place in a plastic freezer container with a tight-fitting lid, or wrap airtight in a 14'x12" piece of heavy duty foil (or use a freezer bag like I did). Label with date and contents. Store in freezer. Use within 6 months.
Makes 4 rolls of dough or about 12 dozen cookies. (each roll will make 3 dozen cookies)
To make cookies:
1 roll of frozen cookie dough above slightly thawed
Preheat oven to 350 degrees (175 degrees C). Lightly grease 2 large baking sheets; set aside. Cut dough into 1/4" slices. Place slices about 1-1/2" apart on prepared baking sheets. Bake 10 minutes until edges are browned. Remove cookies and cool on a wire rack.
Makes about 36 cookies (3 dozen)
PB surprise cookies from jleonard2004!
~1 cup Peanut butter(I like peter pan for them)
~1 cup white granulated sugar
~1 Large Egg
~1 Tablespoon REAL Vanilla Extract(fake vanilla is just yucky!)
~1 10 pack Mini Snickers Candy Bars
~1 pack Mini Muffin Wrappers(and obviously a mini muffin pan right? lol)
~1 Cookie Scoop(if you have one handy)
1.) Preheat oven to 350(325 if your oven runs warm, 375 if your oven runs cool)
2.) Mix PB, sugar, egg, and vanilla until well mixed.
3.) Cut Snickers Minis in half and set to one side(I prefer to freeze them beforehand, they hold up better in the oven that way!)
4.) Fill your mini muffin pan with muffin wrappers and using your cookie scoop, add one small scoop of dough to each wrapper.
5.) Take your thumb and press a hollow into each cookie and insert a half of a mini snickers into each.
6.) Take leftover dough and roll out small strips. Cover each cookie in your muffin pan with one strip and cinch around the edges to ensure it's closed properly.
7.) Bake 20-25 minutes or until Peanut Butter begins to tan a bit around the edges and/or firm up.(basically bake these as long as you would any other PB cookie)
8.) Remove from muffin pan to cooling rack, let cool, peel muffin wrapper and enjoy!
Thank you Dawn!
Congrats to you Jenni!
Now to go look at the cookie contest thread because I know I saw one in there I wanted to try too!
the slice and bake won because of the simplicity of the recipe and that I could freeze them an dthen bake instead of having a large batch of cookies that either get stale or the kids and dh eat like piggies lol AND I did lots of variations on them..I added chopped m&ms and did chocolate chips too!
I usually will make up one of each of the cookie variations and freeze them when I do a OAMC with them.
I googled and found the others from the book for you:
Slice & Bake Oatmeal Cookies
Slice and Bake Sugar Cookies
Slice & Bake Peanut Butter Cookies
Slice & Bake Chocolate Chip Cookies
Slice & Bake Gingersnap Cookies
Slice & Bake Chocolate Wafer Cookies
