50 Cookie Exchange Recipes
I don’t know if you saw all the yummy cookies last week on my blog for my Cookie Exchange Week, but we had some DELICIOUS recipes shared by some of you favorite bloggers. Cookie exchanges are one of my favorite parts about the holidays. Maybe its because I am a food blogger, maybe its because I love to eat, maybe its the spirit of giving… or maybe its all the above. Whatever it is, there is something so special and fun about cookie exchanges. Cookie Exchanges are a great way to spread some holiday cheer to your neighbors, friends and family. To make your decision on which cookie to make this year, I have rounded up 50 of the BEST cookie recipes for the holidays!

Peanut Butter Cup Tuiles There are very few mouthfuls of food more simple and perfect than a chocolate peanut butter cup. Sure, the first blueberries at the beginning of spring are great. A gorgeous slice of aged, tangy cheese, a tiny wedge of freshly baked bread, a sip of a complex, fragrant wine — those would be great too. But I might still go for a chocolate peanut butter cup for dessert. So, this is my riff on a Chocolate Peanut Butter Cup. And let me tell you, they were one of the most well-received recipes I’ve ever, ever made. What’s more, I think this peanut butter mousse could be converted into a very yummy ice cream recipe sometime in the near future… So don’t think you’ve seen the last of these. Peanut Butter Cup Tuiles This month’s challenge is brought to us by Karen of Bake My Day and Zorra of 1x umruehren bitte aka Kochtopf. Tuiles DIRECTIONS Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and chill it in the fridge for at least 15 minutes. Peanut Butter Mousse

Indoor S'mores Let me guess…it’s cold outside where you are? Thought so. This is the second year in my life where I’ve had to deal with snow. Oh, sure we’d get a slight dusting of snow in Texas every so often. If I could fast forward passed this winter and have it be summertime again, I would do it in a heartbeat for you. I used my mini 6″ cast iron skillet, just like I would if I was using an outdoor campfire instead of my oven. Let’s gather around the stove and pretend it’s a campfire, and scoop up this melted chocolate goodness and toasted marshmallow gooeyness with graham crackers! Case in point: I hope this recipe warms you up in this cold winter season!

Brown Butter Double Fudge Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Cookies Little bit of a mouthful there. But it’s like a cookie on top of another cookie! Yeah. Like total dirty cookie on cookie action. Except these ones down below wanted to try a few different positions. I dunno… they’re all mixed up. In order to solve a common I-want-a-chocolate-CHOCOLATE-cookie-but-he-wants-a-plain-chocolate chip-cookie dilemma that happens like, every single weekend here… I made both. Some of them smashed up against each other while others sat on top of each other but in the end, they all tasted… fantabulous. And then they tasted extra delicious after I spent two hours cleaning out the contents of our bar (take that as you will), after he spent three hours organizing the pantry (that was weird) and after we both needed to severely eat our emotions immediately post-Boardwalk Empire finale. WHAT was that. ??????? Why??? Then I tried to dunk a cookie in milk and failed. I need cookie dunking lessons, a redo on season 2 (thanks HBO), and a salad. [from giant rainbow cookies]

Emergency Small Batch Brownies Do you ever have days where you feel like you need a brownie so badly that you’re sure the sky will fall, continents will crumble, and gravity will release it’s sticky grip and throw us all into chaos if you don’t get one? No? Me neither. In unrelated news, here’s a recipe for making just 2 or 3-ish brownies. For those times when you don’t want to share. Or the times when you don’t trust yourself not to eat a full pan of brownies in one sitting. You’re going to need something other than the usual 9×13 or 8×8 pan to make these. Once you have your pan selected and prepped, it’s as simple as whisking, pouring and waiting. The waiting in the hardest part. These brownies are my favorite eaten still hot from the oven, straight out of the pan with a spoon. If you must get fancy, add some vanilla bean ice cream or (pictured here) salted caramel gelato on top. Serves 2 – 3 (or one if you’re bad at sharing and really love brownies) Ingredients Directions Preheat oven to 350°F. Serve warm. Like this:

Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Brownie Sandwich Cookies A chewy decadent brownie sandwich cookie filled with chocolate chip cookie dough frosting that gives the whole ensemble a four star rating from any brownie lover. If you hang out here much at all, you may know my family has a fondness for anything that involves cookie dough. Like the Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Cupcakes we made for Heather’s birthday a few years ago, and the ever favorite, Chocolate Chip Cookie Brownies. So a few months back, when I ran across the Donna Hay Brownie Cookie recipe my first thought was I HAD to make those with cookie dough filling! This recipe is the perfect marriage of the Cookie Dough Cupcakes and the Chocolate Chip Cookie Brownie. You may also know, I’m not afraid to use a box mix. I know these aren’t the prettiest cookies, but I can assure you, they are heavenly and oh so rich in chocolatey goodness.

sesame tahini cookies Sunday March 11, 2012 Two Saturdays ago, we took off across the bridge and drove up into the mountains with some rented snowshoes and a couple of friends. There had been avalanche warnings that morning and I was a teensy bit nervous as we passed the red warning sign at the bottom of the mountain trail, but a few feet into the snow and trees and quiet, and I forgot all about the potential danger. I should point out that we were assured by the employees over at the ski hill that we would be totally fine as long as we stuck to the trails. We made it all the way up to the summit and despite it being an overcast day, it was gorgeous – like being stuck inside a snow globe. I should point out that cookies involved. These sesame tahini cookies that I had baked up the night before helped to take us up to the summit and kept our energy and spirits up. There’s no reason to doubt the awesomeness of tahini in cookies. elsewhere: Over at Poppytalk, I make a fantastic yam & red quinoa salad.

60 Second Chocolate Chip Cookie A la Mode I had so much fun developing this recipe. Talk about kinda dangerous though. This baby is baked in 60 seconds, no lie!! The cookie dough recipe is prepared right in your ramekin, so we are also talking about minimal dishes. Win win, right? You know those fabulous pizzookie’s you order at certain restaurants? In any case, Enjoy my friends!! Start by creaming your butter and sugars right in your ramekin. Just like so, light and fluffy. You’ll add a couple tablespoons of beaten egg next. A splash of vanilla please. Give another good stir of the spoon until combined. Once combined, add your dry ingredients right to the ramekin. Flour, salt and baking soda all set! Give a few stirs then…. Time for some fabulous chips! Oh yah! Top with a lovely scoop of vanilla ice cream and drizzle with my homemade magic shell! Mmmmm. To share or not to share? 60 Second Chocolate Chip Cookie A la Mode Ingredients Directions Place butter and sugars into a 2-cup ramekin, beat with spoon until well combined.
