    Question Chocolately Cottage cheese cookies?

    Had these are church this morning and the baker left before I could get the recipe. Online search turned up several variations but none looked the same. These were soft and crinkly on top. Any ideas?

    I haven't heard if that recipe, sorry. A few years ago, I asked a lady at my CHURCH for a square recipe and ......she said NO! After that I didn't want it and I was sorry I asked. Good grief what is this world coming to?

    Years ago while we were stationed in Alaska a "friend" there had a ham gravy recipe. I asked if she'd share the recipe with me and she said "no, it was a family recipe from her Mother and she wouldn't want her to share it". Her mother had been dead for over 20 yrs. Plus we were in Alaska..who in her family would ever know that she shared it?? So I guess the recipe will go to the grave with her. I thought it was crazy! Another lady from our church had a wonderful chocolate silk pie recipe. We had a bake sale and I bought one of her pies for $10.00 which was a LOT back then. It was worth every penny. I asked if she'd share the recipe and I'd share one of mine with her? She asked her daughter since it was the grandmother's recipe. The daughter said NO. But a few weeks lady called me to say they changed their minds and would share it with me. I still make that pie every holiday season after all these years. THAT is a nice memory!!
    When it seems like the world is falling to pieces remember that the pieces are falling into place. We are nearing closer to the End Times.

    Have s sister in law who will not share a cheese cake recipe with family members...I guess makes her feel important...people who are selfish and not sharing are really "small" and I try to stay away from them

    I have jokingly said I wouldn't share my recipes but for the most part I can give a basic since I don't measure anything while cooking. My baking comes from a book so why not share.

    I share all of my recipes. My SIL tried to tell me her baked bean recipe was secret. She made the mistake of letting me take the leftovers home. After several tries I figured it out. I knew a few details from hearing her talk about them. She ate mine and first asked how I got her recipe then she decided mine were better than hers. No more secret recipes with her.

    I share any recipe that anyone asks for. I consider it a compliment that they liked it well enough to ask for it. My mother-in-law made a pound cake that she called her 1,2,3,4 cake. She did not use measuring cups or spoons. I ask her to make the cake and I measured each ingredient before she added it. After that I made a great pound cake and she couldn't get hers to turn out as before. After that I was the assigned pound cake maker for the family. Hmmmm. I wonder if she didn't out smart me. LOL.

    If I had something that was my Mom's recipe, I think it would be an honor to her if I were to give it to others. What is it going to hurt? In my opinion, sharing is caring.

    I have two recipes that a friend gave me. She asked me not to share the recipe with anyone; so I don't. She died last year but I still honor her memory and don't share. However it is written down in me recipe book so family will have it after I'm gone. Otherwise I'm willing to share.

    I always share my recipes, but what ticks me off is to share a recipe with someone then they turn around and claim that it is their recipe... That happened with a double chocolate pie recipe I had. I gave it to a member of the family. Then at one of the dinners, the person claimed they had brought their famous double chocolate pie recipe.. I guess that made her feel better too. Just thought it was kind of shallow. But oh well such is life. As my Mom used to say, "It takes all kinds"

    I lost my mom in January this year, she was 90 and a very good cook. I've used her recipes all my life, passed on to my children, then my grandchildren. We all love the memories of "granny". Even in her later years when she no longer was able to cook, she collected recipes and always shared them with us. Sharing is caring as someone else said....just to be able to say my daughters can cook is something to be proud of these days...LOL

    I don't use recipes too much so sharing can be an issue, but I certainly try. Yesterday I baked a cake for a church event. Just a lemon mix, but homemade butter frosting and raspberry filling. One table got pushy, not about the recipe, but about, "What's the name? What's the name?" I finally said, "Spring".
