    World’s Best Cookie???

    Has anyone hear tried this recipe? I have seen it online but would be interested to hear from those that have made it.

    It is literally called the World’s Best Cookie recipe. It originated in San Francisco.

    Is that the recipe that uses a grated chocolate bar and oat flour? I've made them but add my own goodies in the mix. It varies depending on the items in the pantry.

    I have my own favourites at different times so I don’t see how one cookie can be better then others.

    The recipe is courtesy of the caterer, but they give credit to the
    San Francisco ala Carte, a cookbook by the Junior League of San Francisco, 1979.

    I've used a recipe very similar to this one. But when I add the oatmeal, I also add raisins, chocolate chips, chopped nuts, coconut, butterscotch chips and cinnamon. Whatever is available. The cinnamon really makes a difference. Sometimes the whole mixture is so thick with goodies, it's hard to find the cookie! It makes a LOT of cookies.

    Agree. My favorite cookie is the peanut butter one that has a hershey kiss pressed into the center when it comes out of the oven.

    That can't be the world's best cookie. It doesn't have chocolate.
    I promise not to buy any more fabric until I see something I really like. Or it's on sale. Or I think it might match something.

    That was my thought, too, when I read the recipe!

    It does sound good - and it makes a big batch!

    I think it was the first cookie recipe that I've seen both butter and vegetable oil used in the same batch. But then I read the rest of the ingredients -

    My other thought was - a lot of people could be allergic to it! (Don't know why that thought crossed my mind as I was reading it!)

    It has wheat flour, eggs, corn, tree nuts, butter (if people are lactose intolerant, does butter bother them?)

    FYI if you are going to try this recipe. I did the recipe Dishpan cookies because it also called for vegetable oil instead of margarine or butter and I thought it would be healthier. I could taste the vegetable oil in them and didn’t like it. The vegetable oil taste did get better after a few days but I will not use vegetable oil again in cookies.

    I'm with SusieQOH Don't care for coconut. In ANYTHING. The cookie with the grated chocolate bar sounds like Neimun Marcus's cookie recipe.

    I made these cookies today and they disappeared really fast at the quilt group meeting. Not a crumb left. 1 box chocolate fudge cake mix (pudding in the mix,) 1 egg, 2 cups cool whip (not frozen) Stir together the egg and the cool whip, add the whole box of cake mix. Stir to mix. Add 1 pkg (16 ozs) chocolate mini chips and nuts of your choice. Dredge in confectioners sugar Bake at 350 for 10-13 minutes. Cool on wire rack.

    My favorite cookie is "Worst Ever Chocolate Chip Cookie" from the SugarSpun site. Haven't tried this "World's Best Cookie" but will try it too.

    Hmmm... had to google that and printed out the Taste of Home recipe.... all I need to do now is find out if the chocolate kisses are gluten free... and if they are ... I can try this out on my quilt group, thanks!

    1 tsp. cream of tartar
    1 c. Rice Krispies
    1 c. coconut
    1 c. oatmeal

    These are very similar to an old recipe called Rangers. They are delicious.

    Made the Worlds Best Cookies this week and shared them with my neighbors. I liked them, alot, because they are good 'dunkers' for your coffee! Kinda sorta like a loaded shortbread cookie with good flavor. The cookies were not super moist so a few of the neighborhood testers (that aren't coffee drinkers) said they were just okay. But others loved them! Thanks for the recipe

    I believe these are called Peanut Butter Blossoms. Yummy. First had them in the 90s
