Default 1st cookie recipe

What is the first cookie recipe you made as a child? My sisters and I were talking about this at our weekly lunch date. We all remember the snowball recipe. It was the graham cracker crumbs mixed with a can of sweetened condensed milk, chocolate chips added and the mixture was formed into balls. The balls were then rolled in coconut until they were covered. No baking required and they were really good. My sister is going to make them with her grandchildren this weekend.

probably the no bake chocolate/peant butter/coconut ones were the first ones "I" made as a kid.
Preceded by many years of helping mother. Smelling the vanilla. licking the bowls.

I remember making sugar cookies for Xmas. We kind of had a production line. The eldest would mix the dough. Next ones would roll and cut. Mom took care of the oven. The rest would decorate. Ah, the good times !

I'm thinking peanut butter cookies smashed down with a fork for imprint. Yummy.

My very first cookie was a sugar cookie recipe from a cookbook, I purchased from the Weekly Reader magazine they handed out to the class. I remember I did not know what fractions were, so when I read 3/4 cup of sugar, I thought it meant 3 or 4 cups of sugar. Of course, I put in 4, I liked sweet things. The cookies did turn out but they were hollow with little columns in them of sugar.

The only cookies my mom ever made were chocolate chip. My grandmother used to help us make wonderfully large, perfectly round sugar cookies, with a hint of lemon. So good!! The only downside was she always served it with a glass of pineapple juice!

Ice box shortbread cookies with my Grandma. Butter, brown sugar and flour, roll into a log, freeze and then cut into rounds. Add half a maraschino cherry and bake.
I miss my Grandma.

My aunt is the one that taught me how to bake. Somehow, I recall making Snickerdoodles. My Mom loved to cook too, when she was well enough, & I remember making Spritz cookies with her. To this day these are my 2 favorite cookies.

I guess ours were chocolate chip also?

I really remember homemade chocolate cake way more than cookies! 3 sisters. Mom always let us have a spoon of the batter. One time she decide to rid us of the habit by making a cake batter and just giving it to us on the back patio to eat. Boy did that backfire for her. Still love it!!!
