Cookie Recipes

These are 2 of my most favorite cookie recipes.
There is a little story behind them. I got the recipe for the Snickers Cookies from the mother of a girl that I taught at my old church. Thank you Marylin! I made them for my husband when we were dating. The best way to a man's heart is through his stomach right? It was around Christmas time and I love to bake during the holidays. Well I gave him a few and he took them home. One of his older sisters came to visit and saw the cookies. He told her how wonderful they were. She made a comment something like this "Who does this girl think she is coming into the family and taking my one talent away?!" (imagine that in the most playful over dramatic voice). I guess I won over my husband but not his sister. I love her and quickly shared the recipe with her. I think we are past the baking rivalry now and like to swap baking tips.

So here are the yummy cookies...

Chocolate Chip Cake Cookies. So easy, quick and yummy. It is a recipe I have memorized.

Snickers Cookies. I took a bite out of one so you can see the snickers inside.

Snicker Cookies
Makes about 60
1 cup butter
1 cup creamy peanut butter
1 cup sugar
1 cup brown sugar
2 eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla
3 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
60 miniature (bite-size) Snickers candy bars
white chocolate chips
semi sweet chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350 F. Cream butter, peanut butter, sugar and brown sugar. Add eggs and vanilla. Combine dry ingredients and add to peanut butter mixture. Take 1 tablespoon of dough and flatten into round shape in palm of your hand. Place Snickers bar in center and fold dough around it. Roll in palms of your hand to form a smooth ball with the Snickers bar totally covered with the dough. Place on an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake for 10-12 minutes. Remove from cookie sheet and place on a wire rack to cool. While cookies are cooling in a small sandwich bag place 1-2 cups of semi sweet chocolate chips in microwave for 10 sec intervals until chocolate is melted. Drizzle over cookies. Repeat with white chocolate chips.

All you Craft Envy readers can use these cookies to put in the canister I did a tutorial on yesterday. Bayberry creek Crafter readers stay tuned. Saturday I will post the tutorial so you will have a fun way to give these cookies as a gift.
