Anyone have any good cookie recipies?

I promised my boyfriend cookies from scratch if he got a turkey when we're bowling. He did it a few weeks ago, so I'm asking for recpies.

I highly recommend Mrs. Fields Cookie Book. It has the best chocolate chip cookies I've ever made. I also enjoy Jessica's Marshmallow Dream Clouds. I think when I actually have an oven, I will steal the book from my parents.

Actually, I found the chocolate chip recipe if you don't want to buy the book. But you should anyway.

Mrs. Fields Blue Ribbon Chocolate Chip Cookies

2 1/2 c All-purpose flour
1/2 ts Baking soda
1/4 ts Salt
1 c Dark brown sugar
1/2 c Sugar
1 c Butter; salted; softened
2 lg Eggs
2 ts Vanilla extract
2 c Semisweet chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 300~. Mix flour, baking soda and salt. In separate bowl, cream together the brown sugar, sugar, and butter. Add eggs and vanilla extract and blend until smooth. Combine the flour mixture and the sugar/butter mixture and mix. Add chocolate chips. Using a silver, not black, cookie sheet, scoop out the dough onto the cookie sheet using an ice cream scoop. Separate the mounds well. Put into a preheated 300~ oven and cook for 22-25 minutes. Do not overbake or raise temperature of oven. This will make soft, chewy cookies.

We have a bookshelf in our kitchen. But we might have a weird kitchen.

On the first topic: You can find a recipe for baking chocolate chip cookies on the back of any bag of chocolate chips. It's all pretty much the same.

You should bother Hanna to give you her mom's recipe for oatmeal chocolate chip cookies, because they are seriously the best cookies I have ever eaten.

i'm eating these now:



they're one of my favorite cookies to make because i can make them with left over bits of puff pastry or whip them up quickly. if you've never made puff pastry you can buy it but it's fairly simple to make.

Wow. I've had angel wings (or are they elephant ears?) before, but homemade. You must reveal your secrets! Or just you know, let us in on that recepie for the holidays. Rolling Eyes

Ok, good. I thought I was going crazy, but you cleared it up. Elephant Ears = Fair/Carnival food. These are pretty cookies.

I really don't think they're the same thing, but I'm no cookie connoisseur.

I still call them palmeras! Up with spanish, down with french!
And they are definitely the ones that my mom calls elephant ears (the flaky cookie, not fried dough.) I've never seen fried dough elephant ears, is that similar to funnel cake?

kind of from what i've heard about funnel cakes. we don't have them here. elephant ears are big (biiiig) circles of fried dough topped with cinnamon and sugar.

Kind of. I've never eaten one though. They scare me, I'd much rather clog my arteries with some funnel cake!

This is the only photo I could find in 2.3 seconds:

Is this an elephant ear?


It looks like a funnel cake but solid, so that makes sense I guess
