OT (!) RCTN Holiday Cookie Exchange

Post by Farley » Fri, 01 Dec 2000 04:00:00



Hi RCTNer's!
     My grandmother and I were having one of our usual disagreements about
holiday baking the other day.  At this house we do and make the exact same
things year after year after year - (sing to yourself "Tradition" from Fiddler
on the Roof)  I don't think we've ever made anything different ever!  Since I'm
the one who actually has to do all the work I want to make something different.
 We're having 32 people in and around this house over Christmas so that means
TONS of cookies!
     I thought it might be a fun idea to have a cookie recipe
exchange......anyone who wants to can submit a cookie recipe....US or metric
measurements, whatever you can provide.  Anybody else want to do this?  Just
make sure you submit with an OT in the subject title so none of our OT Grinches
get upset!

Anne :)

That's one I'd *love* to try...  I'm allergic to walnuts, so I can't eat the
real thing, but family and friends keep raving about how good they are (DH's
been known to pick Doubletree over a similar hotel just for the cookie).  If I
had the recipie, I could try making a batch w/o the nuts :-)

Fabulous idea!  will post back in a week, but I wanted all to know that I
think it's a great way for us to share the holidays.

I'd love to participate as well!!  DD and I made gingerbread houses today,
candy wreaths and wonderful ornaments/tags for packages out of applesauce,
cinnamon and cloves.  They smell divine!!  Will post my cookie recipe in the
next couple of days.

I love it, count me in, I'll try to post recipes this weekend but it
might be Monday.

My favorite is something called Rocky Road Fudge Bars.  Oh so decadent
and not all that hard to make.

Great Idea Anne!

If your looking for something ginerbread snaps like, but soft and
moist...this is a really good recipe.  I usually make a nice steaming cup of
Apple/Cinnamon or Orange Herbal tea...yummmm.  This recipe belonged to my
DH's grandmother.  She used to make it for the grandkids on Christmas Eve.
Here's the recipe:

MOLASSES COOKIES:

1 1/2 Cups    Butter (or Margarine--I've used both and prefer butter)
1 Cup            Brown Sugar
1 Cup            Sugar
2 Eggs
2/3 Cup        Molasses (I use the really dark, thick molasses)
1/2 tsp           Salt

Beat together above ingreadients until smooth

add to above:

4 Cups        Flour
2 tsp.           Ginger
2 tsp.            Cinnamon
4 tsp.            Baking Soda


Makes about 3 dozen cookies
