Chocolate Snickerdoodles Recipe @CDKitchen These are always a hit here! (Don't let the dough sit long at all before baking though. It alters the consistency and isn't nearly as good.)

We make krumkake. It's always a hit and something that people haven't seen before. It's super simple (I use a pizelle iron, but I've done it in a small saute pan too).

I will post the recipe later

Krumkake II Recipe - Allrecipes.com

This one is much like mine except that I use vanilla rather than cardamum.

Eggnog Cookies

3 cups flour
4 tsp baking powder
1/2 c (1 stick) butter, softened
1/2 c. granulated sugar
3 eggs
1 tsp rum extract
1/2 tsp ground nutmeg

Glaze:
2 c. confectioner's sugar
2-4 tsp milk

beat butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Stir in rum extract and nutmeg. Add flour and baking powder, stir until a soft dough forms. With lightly buttered hands, separate dough and roll into balls. Place dough onto lightly greased baking sheets. Bake at 375* until firm (about 10-12 minutes). Cool completely. In a small bowl combine confectioner's sugar and enough milk to make thin icing. Dip top half of each cookie into the icing. Before icing sets, sprinkle tops with sprinkles or a pinch of sugar/spice mixture (2tbsp granulated sugar and 3/4 tsp nutmeg)

Banana Chocolate Chip Cookies | Tasty Kitchen: A Happy Recipe Community!

I make these. I use dark chocolate morsels not chips though, you could also chunk up a baking square roughly. Full bag for 1 batch rather than half a bag (I love chocolate). And I add vanilla, because to me everything that's baked should have vanilla except a boxed cake.. and it probably couldn't hurt then either!



ugh Britt I wish those were cut cookies and not rolled! Reme wants to help me make cookies and I was trying to avoid basic sugar.. but he wants to use cookie cutters... so I'm stuck!
