    You can never go wrong with oatmeal and all the variations of it.

    Cookies made with all butter are too flat. Cookies made with all shortening aren't buttery flavored. I put some of both to get the best texture and flavor cookie. (Thank you Martha Stewart!)

    Chocolate Chip Cookies


    cup Shortening
    cup Butter
    1 cup packed Dark Brown Sugar
    cup Sugar
    teaspoon Baking Soda
    teaspoon Salt
    2 Eggs
    1 teaspoon Vanilla
    2 cups All-Purpose Flour
    1 cups semisweet Chocolate Chips
    1 cup chopped Pecans

    - Preheat oven to 375 degrees

    - Beat shortening and butter on medium speed for 30 seconds

    - Add brown sugar, sugar, baking soda and salt

    - Beat in eggs and vanilla

    - Beat in the flour using the bread dough beaters on your electric mixer

    - Stir in chocolate chips and nuts

    - Drop dough by rounded teaspoons two inches apart on an ungreased cookie sheet

    - Bake eight to ten minutes, until edges are browned

    - Cool on wire rack

    I like the recipe for Toll House cookies on the back of Toll House chocolate chips, BUT, I use left over candy from Halloween and add any extra nuts we have in the house. Some have pecans, some with walnuts, some with cashews. I cut the candy into small pieces. DH calls them Christmas present cookies. Some of the candies have nuts so I don't add so many more. Great way to get rid of the Halloween candy stash. Some may have Skittles and my little niece calls those Nutty Skittles with the added nut pieces. Because some are allergic to nuts you want to be careful and keep them separated. Do Not put the nutty ones on the same plate or in same container as those w/o nuts.

    Favorite? There's lots! One that my family always requested is called Monster Cookies. I guess it is because they contain oatmeal, peanut butter, chocolate chips, M&Ms as well as all the other normal ingredients. At Christmas time, I use the red and green M&Ms and at Easter I use the pastel M&Ms...

    My favorites are chocolate chip using a recipe my DDIL gave me; it calls for 1/2 cup, yes, 1/2 cup, of vanilla. It makes about 14 dozen cookies, so they last a long time, as long as I can keep them away from DH before the company gets here! I used to make tons of cookies at Christmas, but after doing very fancy cookies for my son's wedding, I cut back. I got "cookied out". There were four six foot tables packed with trays of cookies. When the minister gave the blessing before the meal, he thanked God for all the cookies! Wish I would have thought to take a picture.

    my mom changed hers a bit - she would roll the dough into logs, and then cut about 3/8 inch slices to bake until light golden brown. then she rolled them in the powdered xugar.

    minimized the doughy, underbaked centers that would happen with the bslls.

    Mom handed out baggies to each of us at Christmas.

    mine are called: Nieman Marcus cookies and are only made at Christmas.

    Back story: one Saturday,...Christmas was to be on Wednesday that year,

    so basically four days before Christmas, my 3 dd-mouslings and I made
    our traditional Christmas cut out cookies and iced them and ate some.
    Later that night, middle dd and i ended up on the couch and love seat
    propped up, as we were both running to the bathroomS, thank goodness
    for 2.
    It took a few years for both of us to want spaghetti or sugar cookies.
    Our neighbors dd had the flu and didn't know it and had come down
    to our house.
    Her mom gave me her recipe for Nieman Marcus cookies, (that has it's
    own story or maybe it's a "tale"), but the cookies are awesome and
    I feel like royalty every time I eat them...but not after spaghetti!
    It is a blessing, to be a blessing !

    For everyday, it would be chocolate chip or peanut butter. For holidays, it's cut-out sugar cookies.

    thanks for the recipe for the Neiman Marcus cookies., I might need to try that one.
    I've heard from previous years that they are very good and prize winning.
    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.
