OT: (kindof) -- Another recipe request

Post by Kate in M » Tue, 04 Aug 2009 08:15:34



What makes it kind of ON topic -- is that I need a recipe for cookies that
will be sold at our Guild's first ever quilt show next Saturday.

I have recipes for standard stuff -- chocolate chip, chocolate chocolate
chip, peanut butter, peanut butter kiss, snickerdoodles...  standard family
fare.

So considering our audience....  (middle aged+ women probably will be the
majority - women like me!!) -- what would you recommend for something
out-of-the-ordinary that our guests would like.

Doesn't have to include chocolate...   I'm sure there will be LOTS of
chocolate cookies...

What kind of cookie would prompt you to buy one at a quilt show??

How about taking a spice cake mix, adding raisins, perhaps some
coconut, and making a spice cookie?

Macaroons.  Decadent Macroons that I rarely have and would buy a nice big
one for a special treat.

Or maybe ginger snaps for a throwback to what our Grandmas baked.

Or big fluffy sour cream, like I'm fondly remembering my Great-Grandma used
to make.

Close to supper and I'm hungry.  Can't you tell?

When my son's school had bake sales the big seller was rice krispy
treats.  Dead easy to make.  I'd cut them into big squares, wrap each in
plastic wrap and seal with a cute sticker.  Maybe you can even find
quilt stickers :-)

You'd be surprised how many husbands and kids will be at your show.

My mother usually bakes biscotti for this type of thing. I don't have any of
her recipes, but I did find a couple of sites with some:

Lois, the cookie lady, might be persuaded to reveal her recipe for
Pistachio cookies. I will ask, if you would like. They are very good,
and I have never heard of anybody not taking a second one.

I use whatever Macaroon recipe I can find.  I haven't made them in years.
Unfortunately, no one has ever seen the ginger snap recipe and both sour
cream cookie recipes from my Grandma Cook and Great Grandma Williams are
lost to history.  My dad often thought that one of his sisters made off with
their Mom's recipe box when she died.  All that dad wanted was a copy of the
sour cream cookie recipe, but no one has ever fessed up.

Sad face.

argh. your aunts do not amuse me.
i had my heart set on a nice fluffy sour cream cookie or three.
as you started this and got me and probly others all e***d i think it is
up to you to google and work your way thru the various sour cream cookie
recipes til you find one that is similar in taste and texture.
theres a mess of 'em out there so ya best get a move on young man,
times'a'waste'n and i'm'a'salivate'n.
how rude of them to not save a recipe as good as those sound. how rude!!!
well, whatcha wait'n for?
to the kitchen to bake perchance to get lucky on the first try.

This idea would take a bit of effort, but think of the checkerboard
refrigerator cookies made with chocolate and vanilla dough. You could
use food coloring to design a more colorful "block", and make them 9
patches, about 3" square.
