Well, there is a difference between my favorite overall cookie and my favorite cookie that holds up well and can easily be given out as gifts. This is my favorite overall cookie:

Chocolate Chip Cookies

The instant pudding mix in this recipe makes them very soft! Hence the reason they don't always hold up when being arranged in boxes for gift giving and transported.

1 c. butter, softened 2 1/4 c. flour
3/4 c. brown sugar 1 tsp. baking soda
1/4 c. white sugar 1 (3 oz) pkg. instant vanilla pudding
1 tsp. vanilla 2 c. chocolate chips
2 eggs

Cream together butter and sugars. Add vanilla and eggs. Mix in baking soda, flour, and pudding. Add chocolate chips. Drop rounded teaspoons onto cookie sheet. Bake at 350ª for 9-10 minutes or until slightly browned. Remove from cookie sheet and cool on paper towels.

And this is my favorite gift cookie:

Pumpkin Cookies

3 1/2 cup flour
2 1/3 cup oats
1 3/4 tsp baking soda
2 t. cinnamon
3 1/2 sticks butter, softened
1 3/4 cup sugar
1 3/4 cup packed brown sugar
1 15 oz can pure pumpkin (not pumpkin pie mix!)
2 eggs
1 3/4 tsp vanilla
1 3/4 c. chopped nuts
1 1/3 c. raisins

Mix four, oats, baking soda, and cinnamon in medium bowl. Beat butter, sugar, brown sugar in large bowl until light and fluffy. Add pumpkin, eggs and vanilla, mix well. Gradually add flour mixture, mix well. Stir in nuts and raisins. Bake on cookie sheets at 350 for about 10 minutes.

I used dried cranberries in place of raisins, and added cinnamon chips. These are hard to find, but worth it. You could also use white chocolate chips.

This makes a very large batch! I got about 8 dozen cookies. Your yield will vary depending on the size of your cookies.

These are easy, and you can always have a roll in the freezer to bake fresh when you need it.

2 large eggs
1 tsp. pure vanilla
3 c. AP flour
1/4 t. cinnamon

1/2 c. toasted pecan pieces

Beat the Crisco with the sugars then add the eggs and vanilla
Mix together the flour, soda, salt, baking powder and cinnamon and add to the mixture.
Stir in the pecans

Make into logs about 6-8 inches long wrapped in wax paper, twist the ends and freeze.

When ready to bake, preheat oven to 375.
Make slices about 1/4 inch thick and place on cookie sheet.
Bake for about 10-15 minutes depending on your oven until light golden.

3 & 1/2 cups AP flour

Mix butter and sugar together, then add flour, cinnamon, almonds and add the milk a bit at a time until you have a nice dough to roll out.
Roll out on lightly floured board to about 1/4 inch.
Cut out with cookie cutters
Place cookies on a greased baking sheet.
Bake for about 12-15 minutes.

I got this delicious recipe from Marthas site many years ago and have been making them every since. These are always requested, especially at Christmas.

1& 1/2 c. flour (AP)
1 t. baking soda
2 sticks unsalted butter, room temp
3/4 c. sugar
3/4 c. light brown sugar, packed
1 large egg
1 t. pure vanilla
1&1/2 c. oats
3/4 c. dried bing cherries (I get from Trader Joes)
4&1/2 ounces bittersweet chocolate, coarsely chopped
1 c. toffee pieces

PREHEAT oven to 350
Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper
In a large bowl sift together the flour and baking soda.
In your bowl of electric mixer cream the butter and both sugars on medium speed until fluffy, about 2-3 minutes, scraping down the bowl a couple of times.
Add the egg and mix on medium speed.
Add the vanilla and mix well.
Mix flour mixture to the egg mixture and mix on low speed until just sombined.
Add the oats, cherries chocolate, and toffee and mix to combine after each addition.
Place in frig for an hour or longer to chill

Spoon by tablespoons onto baking sheets about 2 inches apart.
Bake until golden brown, about 14-16 minutes, and rotate the pans halfway through baking.
Cool on a wire rack.

I can give you more when I get home to my recipe box.

Good luck :)

Marlen's Chubby Hubby Cookies
2 cups butter or margarine, softened
1 cup sugar
1 cup light brown sugar, firmly packed
2 large eggs
2 Tablespoon vanilla extract
4 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
Pinch of salt
1 12 oz pkg semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 12 oz pkg peanut butter chips
1 cup salted peanuts
2 cups crushed pretzels*

Preheat oven to 350* degrees. In a large bowl, cream butter and sugars until light and fluffy. Beat in egg and vanilla. In a medium bowl, combine flour, baking soda and salt. Blend into creamed mixture. Stir in chocolate and peanut butter chips, peanuts and pretzels. Drop by heaping tablespoons about 2 inches apart onto ungreased cookie sheet. bake 10-13 minutes, or until edges are lightly browned and centers are still soft. Do not overbake. Cool one minute on cookie sheet. Cool completely on wire racks. Store tightly in covered container.
Source: Bob Zotto, Bruker AXS Cookbook
Note from Marlen: The pretzels should be about the size of the chocolate chips, not pulverized. You want to taste bits of pretzel as you munch. This is a crunchy cookie. I use a food processor and just pulse until the desired size is achieved.

MERRY MERINGUES (about 5 dozen)
2 egg whites, room temperature
1/8 tsp salt
1/8 tsp cream of tartar
3/4 cup sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
1 cup chopped nuts
3 TBL crushed peppermint candy

Preheat oven to 250 (NOT 350°). Lightly grease 2 or more baking sheets. Usin a mixer, beat the whites in a medium bowl until foamy. Add the salt & cream of tartar & continue beating until soft peaks form. Add the sugar, 1 TBL at a time, beating well after each addition. Continue beating until the meringue is stiff. Fold in the vanilla, chocolate chips, nuts & candy.
Drop by teaspoonfuls, 1/2" apart onto the prepared baking sheets. Bake 40 minutes. Remove to cake racks to cool.~~

KIEFLIES (about 6 dozen)
6 cups flour
1 1/2 tsp salt
1 lb butter
12 egg yolks, whites reserved
1 cup sour cream
1 tsp vanilla

12 egg whites
1 lb confectioners' sugar (3 1/2 cups) + more for sprinkling
6 cups chopped nuts (1 1/2 lbs)

For Cookies: Mix the flour & salt together. Cut the butter into the flour mixture with a pastry blender or 2 knives until completely blended. In a separate bowl, mix the yolks, sour cream & vanilla. Add to the flour/butter mixture. Blend & knead until the mixture is the consistency of pie dough. Form into small walnut sized balls. Refrigerate.
For filling: Beat the egg whites until stiff. Add the sugr & beat well. Stir in the nuts. Refrigerate.
To assemble: Take a few of the cookie balls from the refrigerator. Roll each ball into a thin circle on a well-floured surface. Place a heaping tsp of filling on each circle. Fold into a crescent shape & pinch the seams closed. Arrange on lightly greased cookie sheets & bake in a prehated 350° oven for 12 minutes. Cool & sprinkle w/confectioners' sugar.~~

12 oz semisweet chocolate chips, divided
Two 1 oz squares unsweetened chocolate
2 TBL butter or margarine
1/4 cup flour
1/4 tsp baking powder
Pinch of salt
2 eggs
2/3 cup sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup chopped nuts

In a medium sauceapn, heat 1 cup of the chocolate chips, the unsweetened chocolate & the butter until melted, stirring constantly. Pour into the large bowl & set aside to cool slightly.
In a separate bowl, mix the flour, baking powder & salt. Add the eggs, sugar & vanilla to the cooled chocolate mixture & beat well. Add the flour mixture & beat well. Add the flour mixture & beat thoroughly. Stir in the remaining chocolate birs & the nuts.
Drop the batter by teaspoonfuls onto lightly greased cookie sheets. Bake in a preheated 350° oven for 8-10 minutes or until the edges are firm & the surface is dull & cracked.

This was inside the box of Land O Lakes butter & they're really good:

3/4 cup Land o Lakes unsalted butter, softened
1 cup sugar
1 egg
1 TBL grated lemon peel
1 1/2 cups flour
Sugar or powdered sugar
Combine butter & sugar in large mixer bowl. Beat at medium speed, scraping bowl often until creamy (1-2 minutes.) Add egg & lemon peel; continue beating until well mixed (1-2 minutes.) Reduce speed to low; add flour. Beat until soft dough forms (2-3 minutes.)
Divide dough in 1/2. Shape each 1/2 into 8" log (1 1/2" diameter) on lightly floured surface. Wrap tightly in plastic food wrap. Refrigerate until firm, 2 hours or overnight.
Heat oven to 350°. Cut rolls into 1/8-1/4" slices with sharp knife. Place 1" apart onto ungreased cookie sheets. Bake 8-12 minutes or until edges are very lightly browned. Let stand 1 minute; remove from cookie sheet. Roll cookies in sugar while still warm & again when cool. Variation: Stir 1/3 cup finely chopped almonds into dough after mixing in flour.~~

These are one of my families favorite cookies. I always have to make a double batch. I usually make these without rolling in sugar and frost them with cream cheese frosting.


¾ c salad oil

¼ molasses

1 c sugar

2 eggs

2 ¾ c flour

1 ½ t baking soda

1 t each cinnamon and ginger

¼ t ground cloves

In a large bowl, stir together oil, molasses, and 1 cup of sugar. Add eggs and beat until smooth. In another bowl, stir together flour, baking soda, cinnamon, ginger, and cloves; gradually add to molasses mixture, beating until well combined. (very important to mix dry ingredients separately) Cover tightly and refrigerate for at least 1 hour or until next day. Place a ¼ cup sugar in a small bowl. Roll dough into 1-½ inch balls; then roll in sugar to coat. Place 3 inches apart on greased baking sheets. Bake in a 350° F oven until slightly browned (10-12 minutes). Transfer to racks and let cool completely. Store airtight. Makes about 2 ½ dozen.

Even though these are low-fat, I actually like them better than the recipe on the Quaker Oats box. I think I doubled the amount of the cinnamon last time I made them, too, because I like them cinnamon-y. The recipe came from a SunMaid raisin booklet.

Low-Fat Raisin Oatmeal Cookies

1 cup white whole wheat flour or whole wheat flour
1 t. baking powder
1 t. cinnamon
½ t. baking soda
½ t. salt
1 cup packed brown sugar
¼ c. fat-free vanilla or plain yogurt
2 T. canola or corn oil
1 large egg
1 t. vanilla
1-1/3 c. uncooked old fashioned or quick-cooking rolled oats
1 c. raisins

Heat oven to 350. Combine dry ingredients. Combine sugar, yogurt, oil egg and vanilla in large bowl. Add dry to wet and blent. Stir in oats and raisins. Drop onto cookie sheets. Bake 10-12 min. Makes 40.

How funny that you should post those fruitcake cookies. A British friend of mine gave me her recipe years ago and I can't find it. All I remember is that it called for a cake of the fruitcake mix that you can buy in squares. Will have to look at the grocery store and see if it is out yet.
Your recipe sounds great too but there are only 2 of us at home so.........need a smaller recipe.

Ha - the joke's on me - I thought that the recipe for 'Washington Nut Bars' was posted by Roselin and it was posted by Khandi - sorry - but anywa, it sure made me smile!

Yes, RL, it is nice to have a friend with a pecan tree in her yard! I like pecans much better than walnuts in any recipe.

These cookies all sound awesome. I'm really into brown sugar cookies right now. You can even jazz them up by adding dried cherries, apricots, or crasins. I just posted the recipe the other day. Here's the link. Let me know if you like them or know of any other interesting additives.

Chips Ahoy Cookies

1 1/2 C oleo
1 C br sugar (packed)
1 C white sugar
2 teasp salt
1 1/2 teasp vanilla
1 teasp soda
4 C flour
12 oz bag choc chips

Mix together oleo, sugars, salt,vanilla and soda. Slowly add flour and chips.
Using a cookie scoop or by large teaspoon fulls and pat down into 2" rounds about 1/4" thick onto ungreased cookie sheets.
Bake at 350 for 15-20 min.
They "crackle" just like the chips ahoy cookies.
I cut back on the sugars probably 3/4 cup of each rather than 1 cup depending on your taste.
