    Just the mother of all urban legends about the Neiman-Marcus cookie, has been making the rounds for over 70 years - and in many incarnations. (woolworths, Mrs. Fields, etc.) Fascinating read!

    Interesting - from the NM website - quite a different cookie. I guess people have changed it over the years as they passed it along. That's what makes for a good recipe!

    The same story was told about the Red Velvet cake when it first came out in the 50's. I have hundreds of cookie and candy recipes and many cookbooks. I started with the Betty Crocker that was a wedding gift in 1957 and still go to it. I have cut out recipes from magazines for years. Wish I had the time and energy to make them all.

    BUCKEYE BALLS (GO BLUE!)

    Peanut butter, butter and confectioner's sugar dipped in melted chocolate chips...can make these gluten and dairy free for DH also.
    I use my outside porch as a freezer and we make these last a loooonnnggg time. Keep in tin containers so that the squirrels don't eat through my screens trying to get to the cookies.

    My Grandma made a sour milk cookie that the recipe has been lost. I remember that whenever she cooked a chicken she would save and render the chicken fat and use it in the cookies, she would use leftover sour milk instead of throwing it away and I believe she used both vanilla and lemon extracts for flavoring. Unfortunately none of my aunts saved the recipe. They were good and froze well.

    Same as Chasing hawk. My kids would not think it is Christmas with out the wedding cookie. I put Pecans in mine. I guess that is normal.

    I just did up some Hermit cookies --but I add mincemeat to them. They never last around here. Funny because I am the only one who likes mincemeat pie.
    I make my own mincemeat and can it--yummy--better than store bought I think.
    But put cookies--any in front of me and I will eat it. lol

    Thanks everyone for sharing their wonderful recipes for favorites. I take pics of them with my phone and sync it to my Mac so I have them on file!

    I like oatmeal, raisins, and walnuts best. I don't make cookies any more with just DH and me. I do make 2 fruit cakes for my DH. He may share one sometimes but the other one goes in the freezer and he eats on it over the year or 6 months. It is a recipe from Southern Living Magazine, Nov. issue of 1977 and it is a light colored cake. I don't put the citron pieces in it; just green and red cherries, pineapples, walnuts chopped in to very small pieces. They cost about $55 each to make last year and and they are labor intensive.
    He doesn't like the store bought ones but will eat the Claxyton if he has no choice or I don't make him any. I generally cut the fruit up the day before and make the cakes the next day.
    But DH loves them and he doesn't like to share (even with his family or neighbors) because I only make them at Christmas!! I think he is so funny! LOL! I don't eat them at all!

    Love hearing the cookies stories too. I remember a sugar cookie with cutouts and candy crushed in the middle, something like a stained glass cookie. my favorites since I was a kid is M&M's i'm making them tonight, at least the mix, then i'll bake tomorrow. great memories, cookies can make.
    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    Peanut butter cookies with chocolate chips - baked very dark so they're crunchy. Also like pb cookies that have the "kiss" in the middle.

    The real answer to the question??? ANY!!!

    Swedish teas. They are much the same as bird nest cookies. I love cookies with raspberry or apricot jam in them

    Chocolate Chip Cookies

    1 1/2 c sugar
    1 1/2 c brown sugar
    1 lb margarine (I use butter flavored Crisco)
    4 eggs
    1/2 cup vanilla
    2 boxes instant vanilla pudding
    6 heaping cups of flour
    2 teaspoons baking soda
    2 12 oz packages chocolate chips

    cream together sugars and margarine till light and fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time. Add in vanilla. In separate bowl, mix all dry ingredients. Slowly add to sugar mixture. By hand, (unless you have a Kitchenaide mixer) stir in choc chips. Drop 1" balls from teaspoon onto parchment lined cookie sheet. Bake at 375 10-14 minutes. Makes about 12-14 dozen. I use a 1" scoop and get 14 dozen. This makes a soft cookie. Delish!!

    Since I don't normally have them in the house, it is usually the last one I had at a group meeting. I think the last one I ate (oops I didn't eat just one) must have been some pumpkin cookies from Costco. Delicious !!

    Love them all, but since I am now gluten free I would have to say macaroons.

    Quilting-nannie, 1 lb margarine (I use butter flavored Crisco) would equal 2 cups? I might just do half of the recipe. I am very curious how rich the cookies would be. Thanks for the recipe.
