I wanted thank you for providing a wonderful list of cookie recipes. The recipe that I'm submitting is not a cookie recipe but the holidays are never complete without FUDGE, so here is my recipe for
"No Cook Peanut Butter Fudge".

1/2 cup of Butter or Margarine
3/4 cup of Peanut Butter
1/2 cup light corn syrup
1 tsp vanilla
1 pound of Confectioners' Sugar

In a medium bowl, beat butter until creamy; add peanut butter, corn syrup and vanilla, blending in well. Sift confectioners sugar into a bowl. Work the dough with your hands until all the sugar is mixed in. Pat fudge into an 8 inch square pan; cut into squares and freeze until firm, about 30 minutes.

I made these cookies as gifts for my staff last year. They started asking in September if they would get them this year too!


1/2c butter, softened
1/2c creamy peanut butter
1/2c white sugar
1/2c packed brown sugar
1 egg
1/2tsp vanilla extract
1-1/4c all-purpose flour
3/4tsp baking soda
1/2tsp salt


1c milk chocolate chips
1c semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 (14oz) can sweetened condensed milk
1tsp vanilla extract
3/4c pecan halves


Preheat oven to 325

Sift together flour, baking soda & salt.
Cream butter, peanut butter and white & brown sugars.
Mix in egg and 1/2 tsp vanilla.
Stir in flour mixture into creamed mixture.
Shape dough into 48 balls, 1 inch each.
Place each ball in one compartment of a mini muffin tin.

For filling, put chocolate chips in a double boiler over simmering water. Stir in milk and vanilla, mix well.

Bake for 14-16 minutes or until lightly browned. Remove from oven and immediately make wells in the center of each using a melon baller. Cool in pan for 5 minutes. Then carefully remove to wire racks. Using a measuring cup fill each shell with the chocolate mixture. Top with a pecan half.

**I also melt white chocolate and drizzle over the completed cookie cups for a finishing touch.

Chocolate Drops
I found this great recipe for chocolate drops in Cookies For Dummies. These tasty cookies are a snap to make. You can make a variation of the above recipe; Chocolate Nut Drops & by adding 1 cup finely ground or minced walnuts or pecans to the dough after adding the dry ingredients. Proceed to shape and bake the same as Chocolate Drops.

Preparation time: 20 minutes
Baking time: 12 minutes
Yield: 4 dozen

8 ounces bittersweet or semisweet chocolate, finely chopped
1cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, cut into small pieces
1/3 cup superfine sugar
3 eggs
1 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup natural cocoa powder
Pinch of salt
1 cup confectioners sugar

1. Melt the chocolate and butter together in the top of a double boiler over hot water. Stir often with a rubber spatula or a whisk to ensure even melting. Remove the top pan of the double boiler and thoroughly dry the bottom and sides. Transfer the mixture to a large mixing bowl. Stir in the sugar and blend well. Add the eggs one at a time, stirring after each addition. Blend in the vanilla.

2. Sift together the flour, cocoa powder, and salt. Add to the chocolate mixture in four stages, blending well after each addition. Cover the mixture tightly with plastic wrap and chill for 1 hour.

3. Preheat over to 350 degrees. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper. Place 1 cup of the confectioner;s sugar in a small bowl.

4. Pinch off walnut-size piece of the dough and roll into balls. Roll each balls in the confectioner;s sugar to coat completely. Arrange the balls on the cookie sheet, with 2 inches between them. Bake for 12 to 14 minutes, until firm.

5. Remove the cookie sheet from the oven and transfer the cookies to cooling racks. Dust the tops of the cookies with the remaining confectioner;s sugar. Store in an airtight container at room temperature for up to a week. Freeze for longer storage.

Oatmeal Raisin Giants

These are my all-time favorites. They're a giant version of cookies I grew up eating and still love. They're also one of my most requested cookies by friends and family of all ages.

Preparation time: 20 minutes
Baking time: 20 minutes
Yield: About 3 dozen

1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, softened
1 cups sugar
2 eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 cups old-fashioned rolled oats
2 cups all-purpose flour
Pinch of salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 cups raisins
1 cup roughly chopped walnuts

1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.
2. Using a mixer and mixing bowl, beat the butter until fluffy, about 2 minutes. Add the sugar and mix together until smooth. In a small bowl, lightly beat the eggs with the vanilla and add to the butter mixture. Blend well. Add the oats and blend thoroughly.
3. Sift together the flour, salt and baking soda. Add to the butter mixture in three stages, blending well after each addition. Stir in raisins and walnuts.
4. Scoop out large spoonfuls (about 2 tablespoons each) and roll into balls. Place the balls on the cookie sheet, leaving 3 inches between them. Bake for 20 to 22 minutes, until the cookies are golden and set. Remove the cookie sheet from the oven and transfer the cookies from the parchment paper to cooling racks. Store in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 5 days. Freeze for longer storage.

(Mix together)
1 c. sugar
1 c. real butter, softened
1 egg
1 tsp. vanilla

(Mix together and add to first ingredients)
3 c. flour
1 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. salt

Divide dough in half. Roll dough into 2 equal rectangle sections. Arrange Andes Mints in rows on one section of dough. Place the second section of dough over the mints. Cut dough between mints into little rectangle pillows. Press edges and seal each pillow. You may have to wet your fingers some with water. Place pillows on an ungreased cookie sheet.
Bake 400 for 8-9 minutes (don't over bake) this is kind of like pie dough
Cool completely and sprinkle with powdered sugar and drizzle with almond bark (add food coloring if you'd like a color of icing)
If you like Andes Mints....these are wonderful....the mint doesn't melt inside....stays nice and firm just like you buy them.
